Another Expedited Criminal Appeal for the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court announced today that it has granted review in State v. Hyppolite.  The question presented, as phrased by the Supreme Court Clerk’s Office, is “Did the State withhold exculpatory evidence from defendant at the time of the detention hearing, and, if so, what is the appropriate remedy under the circumstances where defendant since has been indicted?”  The Court ordered that this case be accelerated.  No supplemental briefing has been scheduled.  Any proposed amicus must file no later than April 11, and the parties will have until May 11 to respond to potential amici.  No other briefing will be accepted unless subsequently requested by the Court.
