This one is not a legal profession case, but is hard for an old Seinfeld fan to resist.
The New Mexico Supreme Court has reversed a decision of the Court of Appeals that rejected a defendant's claimed violation of his right to a speedy trial. The court here remanded the case for an evidentiary hearing.
The defendant is a licensed architectural draftsman. He was charged with offenses arising from allegations that he "had misrepresented himself as an architect." (Mike Frisch)
