Plaintiff Asks California Supreme Court to Dismiss Review in Buell-Wilson v. Ford

The plaintiff in Buell-Wilson has asked the California Supreme Court to dismiss review in that case. (See the court's online docket.)

The court agreed to review Buell-Wilson last year but deferred briefing pending the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Williams III. As we noted last week, the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to dismiss certiorari in Williams III without deciding the case could cause the California Supreme Court to dimiss review in Buell-Wilson as well. On the other hand, the petition in Buell-Wilson raises recurring issues that are not related to Williams III, so perhaps the court will call for briefing on the merits in Buell-Wilson notwithstanding the dismissal in Williams III.
