Legislators, judges and attorneys gathered at the Massachusetts
Bar Association's sold out Annual Dinner on May 7 to celebrate a
milestone year for the legal community -- a year in which lawyers
earned the right to engage in jury voir dire in Superior
Court for the first time.
At the dinner, the MBA honored House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo
with its 2015 President's Award and Massachusetts Superior Court
Associate Justice Dennis J. Curran with the Chief Justice Edward F.
Hennessey Award, for their exceptional contributions to the
administration of justice in the commonwealth.
