Rule 9D

Motions for reconsideration shall be served and processed consistent with Rule 9A. Such motions seeking reconsideration of motions made pursuant to Mass. R. Civ. P. 50(b)52(b)59(b)59(e) or 60(b) are considered made or served for purposes of those rules on the date of service pursuant to Rule 9A.

Additionally, the words "MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION" shall appear clearly in the title of the motion. Upon filing, the clerk shall transmit the motion and supporting papers to the Justice who decided the original motion, but if that Justice has retired or is otherwise unavailable, the clerk shall transmit the motion to the Regional Administrative Justice for the region where the case is pending. If, upon reviewing the motion and supporting documents, the Justice who decided the original motion desires to hold a hearing on the motion for reconsideration, he or she may schedule a hearing thereon. Alternatively, he or she may refer the motion for reconsideration to the Regional Administrative Justice for the region where the case is pending.
