New Hampshire v. LuwalAnnotate this Case
Defendant Nyok Deng Luwal appealed a superior court order ruling that RSA 597:6-e (Supp. 2021) did not confer jurisdiction to the superior court to review a circuit court’s order revoking bail. The State and defendant agreed that the superior court erred in ruling that it lacked jurisdiction to hear the appeal under RSA chapter 597. They asked the New Hampshire Supreme Court to confirm that the superior court had jurisdiction to review a circuit court’s bail revocation order. Having considered the briefs and record submitted on appeal, the Supreme Court conclude that RSA chapter 597 authorized the superior court to do so. Accordingly, judgment was reversed.
