08/19/2011 #1 Petition pursuant to M.G.L. c. 231, § 118 with attachments, filed by Stanley Chamberlin.
08/26/2011 #2 ORDER: Plaintiff Stanley Chamberlin seeks interlocutory relief, pursuant to G.L. c. 231, § 118, first par., from a Superior Court order denying his motion to amend his complaint to add a party to the suit. While a judge generally has broad discretion in ruling on a motion to amend, under Mass. R.Civ.P. 15(a) a motion should be granted "unless there appears some good reason for denying the motion." See Hubert v. Melrose-Wakefield Hospital Assn., 40 Mass. App. Ct. 172, 175 (1996). After review, I find that the judge below did not abuse his discretion in denying the motion because of undue delay in seeking an amendment. The petition is therefore denied. (Rubin, J.).
