Commonwealth v. Thomas Galvin
Whether the provisions of G.L. c. 94C, § 32A(d), as amended by St. 2012, c. 194, § 14, apply retroactively to a defendant whose offense occurred before the effective date of the act (August 2, 2012), but who was convicted and sentenced after the effective date.
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.
