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:

  • Adelman v. Proskauer Rose LLP, 2084CV00735-BLS2, 2023 WL 3792880 (Salinger, J.) (May 16, 2023) (addressing superseding causation in the context of legal malpractice claims)
  • Cerundulo v. 222 Friends, Inc., 228400490-BLS2, 2023 WL 3173132 (Salinger, J.) (April 21, 2023) (distinguishing between disinterested shareholders and independent directors for purposes of dismissal pursuant to G.L. c. 156D, § 7.44)
  • Mavel, a.s. v. Rye Dev., LLC, 2284CV02502-BLS1, 2023 WL 2914209, (Krupp, J.) (Mar. 31, 2023) (denying motion to dismiss multiple claims arising from an alleged oral contract for the development and provision of hydroelectric turbines)
