From the Justice 4 Maryanne Godboldo Committee, Feb. 23, 2012
On December 12, 2011 Judge Gregory Bill signed an order affirming the decision of Judge Ronald Giles’ ruling to dismiss the criminal case against Maryanne Godboldo.
From the date of December 12, the Wayne County prosecutor’s office had 21 days to appeal Judge Bill’s decision. The Prosecutor’s office missed the deadline. On February 6, 2012 the Wayne County Prosecutors office requested that the Michigan Court of Appeals allow them to appeal Judge Bill’s ruling, despite the fact that the Wayne County Prosecutor missed the deadline.
Wayne County Prosecutor’s application to appeal was filed almost 30 days after the deadline. The Prosecutor’s Office has not provided the Court of Appeals with an explanation for their failure to meet the deadline by the Michigan Court rules. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s office claimed to be too busy to adhere to the deadline.
Because of the late filing, counsel for Maryanne Godboldo, Byron Pitts and Allison Folmar intend to fight the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Application to Appeal.
