01/11/2012 #12 Notice of 02/08/2012, 9:30 AM argument at John Adams Courthouse, Courtroom 3 (a3) sent.
02/08/2012 Oral argument held. (Graham, J., Grainger, J., Hanlon, J.).
04/02/2012 ORDER: The Superior Court's docket designated this case as "not public information." Consequently, upon the entry of this appeal in the Appeals Court, the case was designated as fully impounded. See SJC Rule 1:15, § 2 (b). Upon review, however, it appears that the case should not be impounded because it is the respondent's appeal from his civil commitment as a sexually dangerous person, per G. L. c. 123A, 14(d), and cases of this nature are not required to be impounded by the statute. Further, the Superior Court's docket contains no order of a judge impounding the case, see Trial Court Rule VIII, Rule 8, and the Superior Court's notice of assembly did not include a copy of any order of impoundment, see SJC Rule 1:15, § 2 (a). For these reasons, it appeared that the impounded designation for the appeal should be removed, and the case be placed on the public docket. Each party is granted until April 17, 2012, to serve and file a letter in response to this order that states any objection to the removal of the impounded designation, and the legal grounds for such objection. In addition, the letters should identify what, if any, information is contained in the parties' briefs and record appendix that must be redacted or impounded. See G. L. c. 265, § 24C; Mass.R.A.P. 16 (d), as amended, 425 Mass. 1601 (1997), 16(m), 425 Mass. 1601 (1997) and 18 (g), 425 Mass. 1602 (1997). (Graham, Grainger, Hanlon, JJ.) *Notice.
