Habeas Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC45442 - Williams v. Commisioner of Correction (“On appeal, the petitioner claims that the habeas court (1) abused its discretion in denying his petition for certification to appeal, (2) improperly concluded that certain undisclosed impeachment evidence was not material under Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83, 87, 83 S. Ct. 1194, 10 L. Ed. 2d 215 (1963), and (3) improperly concluded that the petitioner failed to prove that his trial counsel provided ineffective assistance. We agree with the petitioner’s first two claims, and, accordingly, we reverse the judgment of the habeas court.”)
