Four summary reversals and one summary affirmance

Yesterday I noted two cases summarily affirmed on the authority of Aalim II. Today we have a summary reversals in State v. Stevens, State v. Lonero, State v. Schroeder, and State v. Kepler, and a summary affirmance in State v. Moore, all on the authority of State v. Grimes. The Court in Grimes explained the requirements for validly imposing post-release control as part of a sentence.

As with the Aalim II dispositions, these five cases were decided some four months after the decision on which they were based.

Court decides two cases held for Aalim II

Earlier I noted that the Court had accepted some cases and held for the decision on the motion for reconsideration in State v. Aalim. Aalim II was decided in May, and I wrote at the time that I expected the held cases to be affirmed. It took four months, but today the Court affirmed State v. Belton and State v. Lee on the authority of Aalim II.
