Entry Date Paper Entry Text
07/22/2010 #1 Prior A.C. cases involving same parties: 1989-P-0364, 1990-P-1265.
07/22/2010 #2 MOTION to waive entry fee, filed by James Colantonio.
07/22/2010 #3 RE#1: Without passing on the question of indigency, the motion is allowed and the petition is entered this date without fee (Hanlon, J.).
07/22/2010 #4 Motion to file late notice of appeal filed by James Colantonio.
07/22/2010 RE#2: The motion to enlarge the time to file a notice of appeal from the Superior Court's denial of the defendant's motion to be declared indigent and to appoint counsel must be denied as the Court is without the authority to grant such relief. G.L. 261, 27D dictates that any appeal from the denial of a request to waive fees or costs by the Commonwealth must be filed within seven (7) days after notification of the denial of the motion. The seven day filing period can not be enlarged by a court as it is jurisdictional (Hanlon, J.) Notice/attest/Hamlin, J.
