Russell v. State (Majority)Annotate this Case
The court of appeals affirmed a judgment reflecting Petitioner's conviction and sentence on a charge of first-degree domestic battering. Petitioner filed a petition in the Supreme Court to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis concerning that conviction, and that petition was denied. Petitioner subsequently filed a second petition in the Court requesting the Court reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court in order that he may proceed with a petition for writ of error coram nobis, raising the same claims in his new petition. The Supreme Court dismissed the petition, holding that because Petitioner's subsequent petition did not allege new grounds or additional facts to cure the deficiencies in the previous petition, Petitioner's petition was an abuse of the writ and did not support renewal of the application.
