On the road again and more

Uncategorized
Practice area:

The Maine SJC is on the move.  The newspaper says the Court will hold two sessions a year in Augusta and two in Bangor (Former Kennebec County Courthouse ready to host high court).  It does the Tour o’ Maine in October.  It only holds nine argument sessions a term according to their on-line calendar [http://www.courts.maine.gov/maine_courts/supreme/calendar.shtml], so this means that the Court will now spend a majority of their time on the road.  Back to riding the circuit? 

Recent decisions

I’m back from hiking in Vermont (which was very Vermont-y), and eschewing the recent big decisions which speak for themselves (e.g., the Maine SJC’s answer to questions from the Governor on the veto process (2015 ME 107), let’s talk about two decisions, one SJC and one First Circuit, that piqued my interest:  First Tracks Investments, LLC v. Murray, Plumb & Murray, 2015 ME 104; and Clukey v. Town of Camden, No. 14-1264.
