Entry Date Paper Entry Text
02/16/2011 #1 PETITION pursuant to M.G.L. c. 231, § 118 with attachments, filed by Tremblay Bus Company, LLC.
02/24/2011 #2 Municipal Defendants' Response to Petition.
02/25/2011 #3 Opposition to Petition with attachments, filed by non-municipal defendants.
03/03/2011 #4 ORDER: Pursuant to G. L. c. 231, § 118 (first par.), the plaintiff petitions for relief from an order of the Superior Court, entered on January 31, 2011, denying the plaintiff's Emergency Motion for Speedy, Bifurcated Trial Against the Municipal Defendants. The plaintiff is a school bus company, alleging that the defendants (officials of the City of New Bedford and two other bus companies) violated G. L. c. 30B in the bidding and formation of the current school bus contracts...I have reviewed the Superior Court judge's Memorandum of Decision, as well as all of the papers filed by the parties. Trial and case management are matters squarely committed to the judge's sound discretion. I discern neither evident abuse of discretion nor other error of law that would warrant the requested relief. See Jet-Line Services, Inc. v. Board of Selectmen of Stoughton, 25 Mass. App. Ct. 645, 646 (1988). Accordingly, the petition is denied. (Lenk, J.). Notice/attest/McGuire, J./image
