This means that the Appellate Division will now decide whether or not to accept Mr. Boyle's arguments and overturn Judge Richard Price's denial of our previous motion. This is all a long-winded way of saying that the Appellate Court, should it accept the case for review, has the power to grant Shane a new trial. Mr. Boyle feels that the Appellate Court will, in fact, review the case and not reject it summarily.
The 36-page document prepared by Mr. Boyle states the facts of the case, and goes on to argue on Shane's behalf citing testimony from last summer's motion hearings in Judge Price's courtroom. It is compelling reading, by any account.
Thank you for your continued interest in this case. As always, I urge you to drop a line of encouragement to Shane :
