Criminal Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC43868 - State v. Guild (Subject matter jurisdiction; petition to extend commitment to jurisdiction of Psychiatric Security Review Board; denial of motion to dismiss state’s petition, filed pursuant to § 17a-593 (c); “On appeal, as a threshold matter, the acquittee claims that this court has subject matter jurisdiction over this appeal because the trial court’s denial of his motion to dismiss satisfies at least one prong of the finality test set forth in State v. Curcio, 191 Conn. 27, 31, 463 A.2d 566 (1983). We conclude that the trial court’s denial of the acquittee’s motion to dismiss is not a final judgment for appeal purposes under either prong of Curcio and, accordingly, dismiss the acquittee’s appeal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.”)
