Every year, the Business Litigation Session (“BLS”) of the Massachusetts Superior Court handles a wide variety of complex business and commercial disputes. In doing so, it decides issues not only of first impression but also other novel issues of interest to any practitioner who litigates business disputes. This CLE will review the most notable BLS decisions from the past year to give practitioners additional tools that they can use when they are litigating in Massachusetts (and perhaps elsewhere).
A number of significant cases will be discussed. Examples include:
• Attorney General v. Facebook, Inc. (Davis, J) (holding that documents created in the course of company’s internal investigation are not protected by attorney-client privilege or work-product doctrine)
For assistance, questions on group discounts, accommodations requests, special billing, program content, out-of-state CLE credits, and general CLE information contact Michael Saporito by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registrations accepted in order of receipt. Registration fees are non-refundable. Most Social Law Library CLE events are recorded. The recording is available by digital download, generally within a week after the program date. Most downloads include print material and are $19.95 each. This product purchase is separate from CLE registration and is not included in the price of a CLE registration. CLE credit, when applicable, is only granted when the live webinar is attended.
• Jinks v. Credico (USA) LLC (Salinger, J.) (holding that the common-law “right to control” test determines who is an “employer” for purposes of the Massachusetts overtime and minimum wage statutes)
• CommCan, Inc. v. Baker (Salinger, J.) (holding that Governor’s order, requiring closure of non-medical marijuana dispensaries during COVID-19 pandemic, is constitutional).
