2 .1 However; in Exhibit 4, the State’s Response to the Petition for

3 Review submits an Appellate Memorandum from an entirely different

4 case, thus confusing the issue before this court.

5 .2 Moreover; regarding Petitioner’s Special Action to the Arizona

6 Appellate Court, the State mis-cites the law and altogether ignores the

7 provisions of A.R.S. 22-375 which effectively end all rights of direct

8 appeal in Superior Court for those who are convicted in courts of

9 lesser jurisdiction unless the constitutionality of a statute as written is

10 challenged.

11 .3 And finally; the State completely ignores the law as set forth in ( )

12 which requires this court to hear cases presenting “serious

13 constitutional issues” even if those issues were not directly addressed

14 in the lower courts, unless those issues were expressly waived.

5 .IV THE STATE HAS SUBMITS A DOCUMENT FROM


6 AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CASE
7

8 1. On page 4, line 2 of the State’s Response, the State references Exhibit

9 4, which is represented to be Petitioners Appellant Memorandum to

10 the Pima County Superior Court.

11 2. However; State’s Exhibit 4, is actually an Appellant Memorandum

12 Petitioner submitted in an entirely different case, (CR 7055909).

13 3. Petitioner submits: State’s exhibit is intended to confuse the court and

14 obfuscate the singular issue now before this court which is: did the

15 appellate court abuse it’s discretion in denying jurisdiction to hear

16 Petitioner’s case contrary to the law as set forth in Dombey v Phoenix

17 Newspapers, Inc., 150 Ariz. 476 (1986), Dream Palace v County of

18 Maricopa, 384 F.3d 990 (9th Cir. 2004) and Citizen Publishing Co. v

19 Miller, 210 Ariz. 513 (2005) which require Arizona appellate courts

20 to accept jurisdiction in special actions raising “serious constitutional

21 concerns.”
