Rule 7

Clerk-magistrates and assistant clerks of the Superior, District, and Boston Municipal Courts who admit persons to bail must register with the Office of Bail Administration on a form approved by the Superior Court before exercising the authority of a bail magistrate. Any of the above who fails to so register shall not be authorized to admit persons to bail.

Clerk-magistrates and assistant clerks of the Superior, District, and Boston Municipal Courts and bail commissioners employed by the court shall not permit their out of court bailing activities to interfere with their regular court duties or attendance in court.

While clerk-magistrates must maintain the proper functioning of their offices, they shall not unreasonably restrict or exclude an assistant clerk from participating in out of court bailing.
