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:

Cannapreneur Partners LLC v. AABA Inc., Case No. 2184CV02744-BLS2 (Salinger, J.) (June 17, 2022) (dismissing indirect investor’s claims for lack of standing in intra-company dispute)

FTI, LLC v. Duffy, Case No. 1684CV03176-BLS2 (Salinger, J.) (June 22, 2022) (concluding that violations of employment agreements and fiduciary duties occurred “primarily and substantially” in Massachusetts for G.L. c. 93A claim)

Katopodis v. Plainville Gaming and Redevelopment, LLC, Case No. 2184CV01937-BLS1 (Kazanjian, J.) (Sept. 12, 2022) (holding that gaming company’s failure to provide legally required win/loss statements to patrons constitutes “separate” and “distinct” injury for G.L. c. 93A claim)
