  • Orders of Interest
    • #141 (No PDF) Judge George A. OToole, Jr: ELECTRONIC ORDER entered. The Motion for Leave to File Memorandum Amicus Curiae of the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Massachusetts (dkt. no. 139 ) is DENIED. I have previously denied a similar motion in U.S. v. Mehanna, No. 09-10017-GAO (dkt. no. 204, denied by electronic order on Aug. 3, 2011). While there may be no positive rule forbidding it, in my judgment a trial court presiding over a criminal prosecution should not receive or consider volunteered submissions by non-parties except as may be specifically authorized by statute (see, e.g. 18 U.S.C. § 3771) or other authority. The proposed memorandum, attached to the motion, is stricken, and the Clerk is instructed to delete it from the docket.
