The Search for Tom's Super LI Jersey


Houston Police are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whomever is responsible for taking the Patriots White Road Jersey from Tom Brady's equipment bag that was in his locker at NRG Stadium following the conclusion of the Super Bowl Sunday Night. 

According to the Boston Globe and the New York Post, the jersey may have a value of anywhere from $500,000 to as much as $1 million, assuming it can be sold and authenticated on an underground memorabilia market.

Baker SJC Nomination


Governor Baker Nominates Justice Elspeth Cypher to Supreme Judicial Court

 

BOSTON – Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito today announced the nomination of Massachusetts Appeals Court Senior Associate Justice Elspeth “Ellie” B. Cypher to serve as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court (SJC). The nomination is Governor Baker’s fourth to the Commonwealth’s highest court. If confirmed by the Governor’s Council, Justice Cypher will replace retiring Justice Margo Botsford.

 

“Justice Cypher will bring nearly three decades of broad civil and criminal, trial and appellate experience, including the last sixteen years on the Appeals Court, to the Supreme Judicial Court,” said Governor Baker. “We thank Justice Botsford for her service, wish her well in her retirement and also appreciate the work of the Supreme Judicial Court Nominating Commission, my Chief Legal Counsel Lon Povich and Judicial Nominating Commission Executive Director Sharon Casey, in recommending diverse and experienced candidates. I am confident that, if confirmed, Justice Cypher’s temperament and understanding of the law will continue to advance the strong tradition of the Commonwealth’s highest court.”

 

Justice Cypher was joined by family, friends and colleagues for the formal announcement today at the State House with the Governor and Lt. Governor. 

 

“The Supreme Judicial Court and the citizens of the Commonwealth will be well served with the addition of Justice Cypher’s sense of justice and civil and knowledge of the law,” said Lt. Governor Polito. “We are, on behalf of the Commonwealth, grateful for the service of Justice Botsford, and look forward to the Governor’s Council’s consideration of Justice Cypher who has demonstrated her ability to work closely with her colleagues and consider matters fairly and impartially in service to the court and all those who appear before it.”

 

"Justice Cypher is one of the Appeals Court’s finest judges,” said Chief Justice Scott Kafker. “She is fair, experienced and wise and would be an admirable addition to the Supreme Judicial Court."

 

The Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) is the Commonwealth's highest appellate court, consisting of the Chief Justice and six Associate Justices. The seven Justices hear appeals on a broad range of criminal and civil cases from September through May and issue written opinions that are posted online.

In February of 2016, Governor Baker named a statewide 12-member Supreme Judicial Nominating Commission (SJC-NC) to recruit, screen and recommend applicants to fill an unprecedented number of upcoming vacancies on the Commonwealth’s highest court.

 

Associate Justices Kimberly Budd, Frank Gaziano and David Lowy joined the SJC last summer following their nomination by Governor Baker and unanimous approvals by the Governor’s Council. The process was re-opened last October with the expected retirements of Justice Botsford and Justice Geraldine Hines later this year. All judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council.

Council Vote Challenged


WSAR has confirmed with the Fall River City Clerk's office in Government Center that an Open Meeting Law Complaint filed after last night's 5-3 vote on the transfer of $20,000 renders the vote null and void, and that the matter will have to be voted a second time on February 17, when Council meets again, and the matter added to the agenda. 

 

Swansea based Patrick Higgins and Associates claims that in their complaint, filed with the Attorney General's Office

 

'' At last night’s City Council meeting, a motion was made and seconded to lift the Mayor’s transfer request from the table.  The financial order was discussed and subsequently adopted, as amended. 

 

The violation alleges that the item was “illegally” deliberated, as this was not an agenda item, and the complainant requests that the vote be re-taken at a future meeting.''

 

The item was seeking a transfer between line items in the Mayor's Office
