From a denial of the petition, the petitioner appealed. For the reasons set forth in Bane v. Superintendent of Boston State Hosp. 350 Mass. 637 , there was no error.

Home JEANNETTE KOLNICKI, petitioner.

352 Mass. 779

June 2, 1967

This petition under G. L. c. 231, Section 117 (as amended through St. 1960, c. 207, Section 4), to establish the truth of the plaintiff's (petitioner's) exceptions in a tort action for personal injuries, was referred to a commissioner. His report and the transcript of the testimony at the trial in the Superior Court show that much material evidence was omitted from the bill, which failed to conform to the truth. G. L. c. 231, Section 113. The single justice correctly dismissed the petition.

Exceptions overruled.
