Nicholas O’Donnell, lawyer for the Hatt party, has filed a brilliant brief to the MA Supreme Judicial Court. It’s a scathing, well-documented indictment of the Museum’s actions and critical of the proposed agreement. It makes a final plea for the Supreme Court: “The AGO specifically promised that, notwithstanding the Museum’s obligation to inform the AGO ahead of time of which other artworks it will sell, it will do nothing about it. Only this Court can stop it now.”

February 20, 2018

The James Hatt party (through their attorney, Nicholas O’Donnell) filed a request to submit an amicus brief by February 27, with the assent of the other parties (the Museum and AGO).

V. RELIEF SOUGHT The Museum Members respectfully request that this Court:

1. Reverse the Berkshire Superior Court’s decision dismissing their action;

2. Reverse the Berkshire Superior Court’s denial of the Museum Members’ motion for a preliminary injunction, and enjoin the Museum from any sale or other conveyance of its artwork; and

3. Remand this case to the BLS where it was filed.

This filing addresses the Berkshire Museum’s challenge that the single appeals court justice cannot grant a delay in the injunction. Attorney General’s Office argues that appellate judge has the right to make the decision.
