DOCKET ENTRIES
Entry Date Paper Entry Text
06/21/2012 #1 Motion to docket appeal late, filed by Jann R. Schlichtmann.
06/22/2012 #2 Opposition to Petition for enlargement with attachments, filed by Cadle Company.^
06/26/2012 #3 ORDER:The defendants' have failed to show "good cause" within the meaning of Appellate Rule 14(b) as that term has been construed by our cases. The affidavit establishes nothing more than that the defendant's busy practice caused him to overlook the deadline. "[R]ule 14(b) authorizes this court, or a single justice thereof, to grant an enlargement of time for up to one year 'for good cause shown.'" Commonwealth v. Trussell, 68 Mass. App. Ct. 452, 454 (2007). The good cause standard is "no less exacting than 'excusable neglect.'" Troy Indus., Inc. v. Samson Mfg. Corp., 76 Mass. App. Ct. 575, 581 (2010), quoting from Trussell, supra at 454. "Excusable neglect is not meant to cover the usual excuse that the lawyer is too busy, which can be used, perhaps truthfully, in almost every case." Feltch v. General Rental Co., 383 Mass. 603, 614 (1981) (internal quotation and citation omitted). The motion is accordingly denied. (Wolohojian, J.). *Notice/Attest Footnotes (1) Jan R.
