Mallard finally understands what happened. Richards originally found out because he had been in the newspaper headquarters when a report of the accident that killed Mr.
Racial Revenge Motive -- It was proper for the trial court to permit evidence and argument as to the motive for the murders. Bello Lie Detector Test -- The decision by the district Court that disclosure to the defense of an initial oral report of a polygraph test given an eyewitness would have led to a reasonable probability of an acquittal of petitioners is not supported by the record of the state trial court proceedings.
The Habeas Corpus Petitions The petitions for writ of habeas corpus filed by Rubin Carter and John Artis in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey relate to their respective convictions of three counts of first degree murder entered on February 9, following a lengthy jury trial which terminated with verdicts entered on December 21, Petitioners and respondents agreed that the petitions should be consolidated for consideration by the United States District Court 1aD ;and an Order consolidating the petitions was entered on May 6, 1aD At the time the respective petitions for writ of habeas corpus were filed, there remained pending in the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court an appeal by petitioners from a ruling by the trial court denying a motion brought by petitioners seeking, alternatively, an evidentiary hearing or a new trial based upon allegedly exculpatory material contained in a personal file maintained by a former prosecution investigator, Richard Caruso.
Since the pendency of this state appeal was perceived to raise a threshold issue of non-exhaustion of state remedies 1aDrespondents filed an answer addressed primarily to the exhaustion of state remedies issue 1aD Before this issue was addressed by the district court, petitioners on May 25, filed a motion for summary judgment on seven of the grounds asserted in the petitions 1aD The motion was supported by oversize briefs submitted by petitioners 1aD A hearing date of July 26, was scheduled on the summary judgment motion 1aD At the time of this hearing of July 26,referred to as the oral argument in the district court's opinionthe district court did not have the benefit of the respondents brief or the trial transcripts.
The respondents wished to avoid being drawn into arguing appeals in this case in the state courts and federal courts simultaneously. The district court did not respond to our claim of non-exhaustion of state remedies and directed the respondents to argue the appeal in the federal court while petitioners pursued their appeals in the state courts.
In the interim, the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court on July 2,in an unpublished opinion 1aEhad denied the appeal of petitioners concerning their new trial motion brought on the basis of the so-called Caruso file.
The petitioners new trial motion had been dismissed by the trial court. The Appellate Division determined that the information from the so-called Caruso filed was not "favorable" to the defendants.
The court said that it was not "usable" or "significant" and that it did not justify a hearing much less a new trial.
At the hearing before the United States District Court, Petitioner Carter stipulated amendment of his petition to exclude the issue raised by the Caruso file 1aD ; Petitioner Artis, however, did not exclude this claim, having filed a notice of petition for certification on July 22, addressed to the New Jersey Supreme Court 1aE Following oral argument on the motion for summary judgment before the district court, respondents on August 30, filed an answering brief and filed with the district court the transcript of the trial proceedings as well as the remand hearing before the trial court directed by the New Jersey Supreme Court 1aD This Order was received by the parties on November 5, Two days later, on November 7,the United States District Court issued its opinion, finding that petitioners had made a sufficient showing in the two grounds considered by the court for the court to grant the writs of habeas corpus 1aD The brief consisted of pages and an application for permission to file the oversized brief was submitted, at the same time.
The appendix which was delivered alone with the brief consisted of approximately 90 volumes per set. Thereafter the respondents-appellants was required by the Court to revise our brief. Our revised brief was submitted on October 3, Our repeated application to obtain this Courts permission to file our revised brief of pages have been denied.
In the two aforesaid briefs, the respondents-appellants presented a detailed analysis of the district courts page opinion.
Our briefs convincingly demonstrated that the district court judged this case badly and that its decision to vacate these murder convictions amounts to a terrible injustice.
The district courts opinion contains errors and misstatements about this case.
The district court presents slanted and distorted views of the case and the evidence. These unusual and strong characterizations of the opinion on appeal are amply supported by the briefs which the Court has refused to read. Because of the exceptional circumstances of this case twenty-year, eventful history; two, lenghty trials, approximately 20, pages of appendix; etc.
