Davis v. Hobbs (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Petitioner filed a petition for declaratory judgment and writ of mandamus seeking a declaratory judgment concerning the calculation of his parole eligibility date and a writ of mandamus directing certain state officers and employees to recalculate his parole eligibility date. The circuit court denied the petition. Petitioner filed a notice of appeal, but the clerk of court declined to lodge the record because the notice of appeal was not timely. Petitioner then filed this motion requesting permission to proceed with an appeal through rule on clerk or by belated appeal. The Supreme Court denied the motion, holding that Petitioner failed to meet his burden to establish good cause for his failure to file a timely notice of appeal.
