Habeas Appellate Opinions

by Townsend, Karen


AC38803 - Santos v. Commissioner of Correction ("The petitioner claims that the habeas court abused its discretion in denying his petition for certification to appeal because it improperly concluded that (1) the prosecutor in his criminal trial did not knowingly present false or misleading testimony against him, and (2) his trial defense counsel did not render ineffective assistance of counsel. We dismiss the appeal.")

AC38946 - Walker v. Commissioner of Correction ("On appeal, the petitioner claims that the court improperly concluded that (1) his defense counsel did not have an actual conflict of interest at the time of his representation of the petitioner and (2) he abandoned his due process claim that he was denied his right to be present at an in-chambers conference. We affirm the judgment of the habeas court.")
