Ardaneh v. CommonwealthAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed the judgment of a single justice of the court denying Petitioner's petition for relief under Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 211, 3, holding that the single justice did not err or abuse his discretion in denying relief.
Although Petitioner asked the court to exercise its general superintendence power pursuant to Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 211, 3, he did not identify the specific relief he was seeking. The single justice denied the petition. The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed, holding that, to the extent Petitioner sought relief from perceived injustices done or imposed on him in the trial court, his claims did not warrant extraordinary superintendence relief directly from the Supreme Judicial Court.
