Skrabec v. Town of North Attleboro, 17-1385

Affirming the summary judgment to the defense in a case alleging conspiracy, negligence, and malicious prosecution following the arrest of a student for statements that he'd 'like to shoot up the school' shortly after the Sandy Hook Massacre where the plaintiffs failed to file an opposition to the motion for summary judgment because excusable neglect was not a defense where the neglect was the result of an understanding of procedure by the defense attorney that was simply wrong, namely that the obligation to file a motion in opposition was unnecessary while settlement discussions were ongoing.
