Entry Date Paper Entry Text
12/05/2013 #1 Petition pursuant to M.G.L. c. 231, § 118 with attachments, filed by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts Inc, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts HMO Blue Inc.
12/10/2013 #2 ORDER: The grant of the relief requested, ordering dismissal of the complaint by allowing entry of judgment on the pleadings on the remaining counts, is a dispositive final order and, as such, not within the authority of a single justice. Such action on an appellate level is exclusively within the province of a full panel. See mass. R. A.P. 15 , 365 Mass. 860 (1974), which provides that a single justice may not dismiss or otherwise determine an appeal or other proceedings. See also Pemberton v. Pemberton, 9 Mass. App. Ct. 809 (1980); Commonwealth v. Owens-Corning Fibreglas Corp. 38 Mass. App. Ct. 600, 601 n.3. Although not requested by petitioner, I have considered whether an interlocutory appeal is warranted. Such appeals are greatly disfavored. Pollack v. Kelly, 372 Mass. 469, 470-477 (1977). Nothing in the circumstances of the case points to deviation from the general practice. The petition for relief under G. L. c. 231, §118 (first par.), is denied.
