MSC Orders: March 26, 2010

On March 26, 2010, the Court denied leave to appeal in four cases, including Lighthouse Place Development, LLC v. Moorings Association, No. 139015, in which the Court had granted leave and heard oral argument. In Lighthouse Place, the Court concluded that the questions presented regarding the standard for slander of title were worthy of review. Our previous discussion of Lighthouse Place is here. Justice Corrigan dissented in part and would have adopted the reasoning of Judge Wilder's dissent from the Court of Appeals' decision.

The Court also remanded People v. Keller, No. 139133, to the Court of Appeals for consideration on direct appeal because the defendant's former appellate counsel's failure to file an application for leave of the defendant's plea-based conviction was constitutionally ineffective assistance of counsel. Justice Corrigan would have referred the attorney to the Attorney Grievance Commission.
