11/05/2012 #3 ORDER: Intervener Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. has filed a petition pursuant to G. L. c. 231, § 118 (first par.), in which it seeks review of an order of the Plymouth Superior Court denying its motion to dismiss the plaintiff's complaint. The intervener also seeks leave from the single justice to take an interlocutory appeal from the order. To the extent the petition requests that the single justice enter an order allowing its motion to dismiss, it is denied because a single justice does not have the authority to grant outcome determinative relief. See Mass.R.A.P. 15(c); Pemberton v. Pemberton, 9 Mass. App. Ct. 809, 809-810 (1980). To the extent the petition seeks leave to pursue an interlocutory appeal, the petition also is denied. Single justice relief should be reserved for truly extraordinary and exceptional cases and provided only in a stinting manner. Edwin R. Sage Co. v. Foley, 12 Mass. App. Ct. 20, 25 (1981). Such exceptional circumstances are not presented here. (Sullivan, J.). *Notice/Attest/Dupuis, J.
