02/02/2012 #1 Appeal entered pursuant to M.G.L.c. 261, § 27(D) with attachments.
02/06/2012 #2 ORDER: The plaintiff, Lawrence Watson, has appealed, pursuant to G.L. c. 261, § 27D, from a determination of the Probate and Family Court, docketed on July 25, 2008, denying his request for the state payment of costs for the preparation of CDs and transcripts. The CDs and transcripts at issue were sought in relation to the court's Judgment of Dismissal, entered on July 9, 2008, dismissing the plaintiff's Equity Complaint for lack of jurisdiction. On July 29, 2008, filed a Request For Tape Duplication, and by August 11, 2008, the duplication of three CDs had been completed. By letter, dated August 11, 2008, the Probate and Family Court notified the plaintiff that, as the CDs had been prepared, a balance of $151.50 was due in order to procure them for transcription, and that after the transcription process was completed the matter would then be assembled and transmitted to the Appeals Court. On August 22, 2008, the plaintiff filed an Amended Notice of Appeal from the denial of the motion to waive the fees. Although characterized as an amended notice of appeal, no initial filing of a notice of appeal from the indigency denial appears on the docket, and the August 22nd filing date seems to be the plaintiff's first attempt to appeal the denial of his motion, a date that is well beyond the seven-day filing requirement prescribed under G.L. c. 261, § 27D. The plaintiff offers no reason or excuse for failing to comply with § 27D. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed as being untimely. (Agnes, J.) *Notice/Attest.
