State ex rel. Johnson v. JensenAnnotate this Case
In 2007, Appellant was convicted and sentenced to prison. In 2013, Appellant filed a petition for a writ of procedendo against Judge James D. Jensen, asserting that Judge Jensen failed to rule on a motion to dismiss the indictment in his criminal matter. The court of appeals sua sponte dismissed the petition for the writ because there was no indication that the motion to dismiss had been filed. The Supreme Court affirmed but for a different reason, holding that Appellant’s petition was fatally defective because Appellant named the wrong party as the respondent, where Judge Michael Goulding was currently assigned to Appellant’s case in the court of common pleas.
