08/05/2011 Status report, filed by Nilda E. Medina.
08/11/2011 ORDER: After review, the plaintiff's petition pursuant to G. L. c. 231, § 118, first par., seeking relief from an order of the Probate Court allowing the defendant's motion to compel production of a certified marriage certificate, is hereby denied. The discovery order says nothing about where the burden of proof will ultimately lie, nor does it indicate that the marriage certificate, or its absence, will be dispositive of the case, issues on which I of course express no opinion. The scope of single justice review of discovery orders is narrow, and I find no abuse of discretion on the part of the probate judge in her entry of the discovery order. See Symmons v. O'Keeffe, 419 Mass. 288, 302 (1995). Accordingly, the petition is denied. (Rubin, J.). Notice/attest/DiLeo, J.
