    Interest tactic to make sure that the assignments of error get filed ASAP in Parker. And yes, NMCCA said they would hold oral arguments on all future requests for enlargements of time in the case.

    Well if we didn’t switch out appellate counsel in capital cases like clockwork, maybe stuff would get filed in 3 years or so, but when the time to file is probably around that long, and appellate counsel usually leave after 2 years (taking a year to just get “qualified” in capital practice) guess what happens…

    When did this happen? In 1992? Isn’t it reallly in its 246th enlargement? What a joke.
