Notable & Quotable

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hines SJC Nomination

Healy for Notable

"I think she's known as a no-nonsense judge. If someone deserves society's punishment and deserves to serve time, she's not afraid to impose that punishment."

MBA Chief Legal Counsel and Chief Operating Officer Martin W. Healy, Boston Globe, June 13

Healy spoke to the Globe about Governor Deval L. Patrick's historic nomination of Appeals Court Judge Geraldine S. Hines to the Supreme Judicial Court. If confirmed by the Governor's Council, Hines will become the first African-American woman to serve on the state's highest court. Healy was also quoted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and an Associated Press story that ran in several outlets nationwide.

Hernandez Case

Notable Elikann

"The lawyers are doing exactly what they should. When you have a murder charge where somebody's facing life without the possibility of parole, you leave no stone unturned even if there's a one percent chance you're going to be successful."

MBA Past Criminal Justice Section Chair Peter Elikann, FOX25, June 17

Elikann was a live guest on the FOX25 Morning News to discuss the latest court appearance of Aaron Hernandez in the ongoing Odin Lloyd murder investigation.
