Appellate Courts will begin transmitting all notices, orders, and opinions electronically.
Beginning no later than July 1, 2011, the appellate courts will send notices, orders, opinions and correspondence related to pending cases to attorneys in those cases by e-mail rather than postal mail. All attorneys with pending appellate cases who have not already registered an e-mail address should do so immediately. Unrepresented parties with pending appellate cases may also participate in this e-notification system by registering an e-mail address. Please go to http://www.mncourts.gov/?page=156 for instructions how to register your e-mail address.
DECISIONS OF THE COURT OF APPEALS
FILED MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2014
A14-0169 Phillip Anthony Roberts, petitioner, Appellant, vs. State of Minnesota, Respondent.
Ramsey County District Court, Hon. Leonardo Castro.
The newly-discovered-evidence exception to the statutory time bar to postconviction relief does not apply to an untimely petition seeking plea withdrawal based on allegedly deficient controlled-substance testing when the alleged deficiencies could have been ascertained by the exercise of due diligence within the time for filing a timely petition and the new evidence does not clearly and convincingly establish that the petitioner is innocent.
Affirmed. Judge Michelle A. Larkin.
