THE SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT IS SOLICITING AMICUS BRIEFS OR MEMORANDA FROM INTERESTED PARTIES IN THE FOLLOWING MATTER PENDING BEFORE THE COURT
ARGUMENT IS SCHEDULED FOR MAY 2012.
Commonwealth v. Somdeth Mountry
At the trial of an indictment for rape, whether the evidence was sufficient to establish that the complainant was so impaired that she was incapable by reason of intoxication of consenting to intercourse; whether the defendant knew or reasonably should have known that the complainant's condition rendered her incapable of consenting to the sexual act, where he also was allegedly impaired.
Interested parties may file their briefs in the Office of the Clerk for the Commonwealth, John Adams Courthouse, Suite 1-400, Pemberton Square, Boston MA 02108-1724 (Telephone 617-557-1020). Parties filing amicus briefs are expected to comply with the requirements of Rules 17, 19 and 20 of Mass. Rules of Appellate Procedure. Amicus briefs, to assist the court, should focus on the ramifications of a decision and not solely on the interests of the parties filing such briefs.
