05/29/2012 #7 Motion to accept non-conforming brief and appendix, filed by Precious Okereke.
06/04/2012 #8 RE#5: The motion is denied without prejudice, as the appellant's brief was signed and submitted by a person not licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, nor is that person a party to this appeal. Consequently, the brief cannot be accepted for filing. The only appellant to this appeal is Precious Okereke, and all pleadings must be filed by, and signed by, same. Notice
06/08/2012 #9 Motion to reconsider paper #5, filed by Precious Okereke.

06/25/2012 #12 OPPOSITION to dismissal for lack of prosecution, filed by Precious Okereke.
06/27/2012 #13 RE#7: I understand the plaintiff's "Opposition to dismissal for lack of prosecution" to be a motion to stay the dismissal of her appeal. Viewed in that light, the motion is allowed provided the plaintiff files a conforming brief on or before July 18. If the plaintiff does not file a conforming brief by that date, the appeal will be dismissed. I advise the plaintiff that this appeal will not be stayed simply because motions are being filed or considered in the trial court. She is required to file her appellate brief regardless of what is occurring in the court below. (Wolohojian, J.) *Notice.
07/03/2012 #14 Motion for inclusion of Chukwuma Azubuko and Chisom Azubuko in the proceedings and nullification of notice of appearance order (central to being one of the necessary parties), filed by Precious Okereke.
07/06/2012 #15 RE#8: Denied. Chukwuma Azubuko was previously denied permission to file or otherwise participate in the action below. As such, he is not a party to this appeal and may not particpate in it. (Carhart, J.). *Notice.
07/11/2012 #16 Motion for three-judge court on compulsory joinder, filed by Precious Okereke.
08/16/2012 #17 RE#9: Denied. An appellant's appeal is assigned to a three judge panel after the parties' briefs are filed. Here, the appellant was ordered to file conforming briefs by July 18, 2012, or the appeal would be dismissed. To date, no conforming brief has been docketed. Consequently, pursuant to the court's June 27, 2012, order, the appeal is to be dismissed and the second step of the court's standing order governing dismissals shall be enter forthwith. *Notice.
08/16/2012 #18 ORDER: DISMISSAL under Standing Order Governing Dismissals for Lack of Prosecution.

08/23/2012 RE#10: See court's action, dated 8/16/12, RE #9. As the appellant's brief due 7/18/12, remains overdue, the appeal is subject to dismissal to the trial court, pursuant to the standing order concerning dismissal of appeals for lack of prosecution. *Notice.
