Criminal Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC44472 - In re Police Case Numbers: Meriden PD 20-003903, 20-005055 & Berlin PD 2020-11662 (Motions to quash search and seizure warrant; subject matter jurisdiction; mootness; "Anthony Lazzari appeals from the judgment of the trial court dismissing his emergency motions seeking, inter alia, to quash a search and seizure warrant. The court determined that, because there was no pending criminal action against Lazzari, it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over the motions. On appeal, Lazzari claims that the court had jurisdiction over the motions despite the absence of a pending criminal action. Since Lazzari filed this appeal, however, events have rendered the appeal moot. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.")
