Airsman v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Petitioner was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment with an enhancement of 180 months’ imprisonment. The Supreme Court affirmed. Petitioner later filed two petitions for postconviction relief pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1. The trial court denied both petitions. Petitioner then brought a pro se petition for writ of mandamus requesting the Supreme Court to direct the circuit judge to file and sign documents concerning an appeal of the order denying his second Rule 37.1 petition. The Supreme Court denied the mandamus petition, holding that Petitioner did not clearly establish a duty that the judge failed to perform.
