The Arkansas Court of Appeals got back in session this week after an extended summer break. They started off easy by deciding several no-merit appeals that had been sitting on their docket for some time. As for me, this new session has some promise.
The Arkansas Court of Appeals has actually taken a long look at the Petition for Rehearing filed in Robelo v. State. The Petition was submitted on August 15, along with several other petitions. All other petitions have been denied except for Robelo’s. Typically, but not always, the longer the decision takes to come down the more likely it is that the Court will reverse. So I will keep my fingers crossed for a reversal in Robelo’s case.
Currently, I have 10 cases awaiting decision at the Arkansas Court of Appeals and Arkansas Supreme Court. I also have three cases with pending oral argument requests. This is shaping up to be a busy and exciting session on this blog.
