Anderson v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
The court of appeals reversed and remanded Petitioner David Anderson's original conviction for first-degree murder. Following a new trial on the same charge, Petitioner was again convicted, and he received a life sentence. The Supreme Court affirmed. Petitioner subsequently filed a petition asking that the Supreme Court reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court and permit him to file a petition for writ of error coram nobis. Petitioner then filed a motion for addition, a motion seeking to amend the petition, six amendments, and motions to voluntarily dismiss, to compel, and to raise objections. The Supreme Court (1) granted the motion that sought to amend the petition; (2) denied the motions to dismiss and compel; and (3) denied the petition with its amendments, holding that none of the claims raised in Petitioner's petition or amendments had merit.
