June 19, 2002
|
STATEMENT OF THE ISSUES 
I.  Whether the single justice erred in exempting cash accounts of the Commonwealth from a levy of execution to satisfy monetary judgments issued to certified clean elections candidates when such cash accounts are subject to execution under Chapter 235 of the General Laws of the Commonwealth and when common law clearly provides for the attachment of cash accounts.
 
II.  Whether the single justice erred in denying plaintiffs’ motion for the appointment of a receiver to hold surplus money from the levies of execution of current judgments for the satisfaction of future judgments, when such appointment is necessary to preserve the meaning of the matching funds provision of the Massachusetts Clean Elections Law. 
 
III. Whether the single justice erred in denying plaintiffs’ motion for an expedited seven-day notice period for execution sale of real property to ensure effective and timely satisfaction of all judgments issued to certified clean elections candidates.
