Richard CONGER v. STATE of Arkansas
CR 98-892 ___ S.W.2d ___
Supreme Court of Arkansas
Opinion delivered September 10, 1998
Appeal & error -- motion for rule on clerk -- good cause for
granting. -- An admission by an attorney for a criminal defendant that the record was tendered late due to a mistake on his part is good cause to grant a motion for rule on the clerk.
Motion for Rule on the Clerk; granted.
Naif S. Khoury, for appellant.
Appellant Richard Conger, by and through his attorney, has filed a motion for a rule on the clerk. His attorney, Naif S. Khoury, admits in his motion that the record was tendered late due to a mistake on his part.
We find that such an error, admittedly made by an attorney for a criminal defendant, is good cause to grant the motion. See In re Belated Appeals in Criminal Cases, 265 Ark. 964 (1979) (per curiam).
The motion is therefore granted. A copy of this opinion will be forwarded to the Committee on Professional Conduct.
