Nominal Action in Monteiro

Bob La Trémouille reports.

The case of Monteiro v. Cambridge has had numerous reports on this blog, and a link prominently posted to the key judge’s decision.

The case is in post judgment motions. Cambridge has filed notice of appeal and then admitted the notice of appeal was improperly filed.

My knowledge of the papers in front of the Court is limited to the titles of papers which have been listed on the public record in a Court document called “The Docket.”

Currently pending in front of the Court are:

1. The plaintiff’s motion to correct judgment because the judgement did not allow sufficient interest. I think this is the paper that was filed on November 4, 2009.

2. Cambridge’s motion for reconsideration of decision filed on November 3, 2009.

The parties have filed some papers since which amount to elaboration of these two motions.

On April 30, 2009, 11 volumes of transcript of testimony from various parts of the action were filed. This presumably is Cambridge’s accumulation of the record for an appeal.
