Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen

 

AC42994 - Johnson v. Commissioner of Correction (Interpretation of rule PB 23-24; retroactive application of 2013 amendment; earned credit for parole eligibility and whether it violated ex post facto clause of US constitution; “On appeal, the petitioner claims that the court abused its discretion in denying his petition for certification to appeal and declining to issue a writ of habeas corpus. The respondent, the Commissioner of Correction, concedes that the court abused its discretion in denying his petition for certification and declining to issue the writ for the reason stated by the court, but nonetheless argues that we should affirm the judgment because the court lacked jurisdiction over the petition. We agree with the respondent and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the habeas court.”)
