Here is a link to the full docket sheet for the case. If I'm correct, this order could be highly important to the Adnan Syed appeal. If someone is able to track down a copy, could you please send it to me at Mille933@law.sc.edu?

So, the court quashed (disposed with the defendant's cross-appeal disfavorably before decision) sua sponte (on its own, without a motion by the State).

Ned: Thanks. That's the court's opinion granting the State's appeal from a suppression order. I'm looking for the court's order quashing the defendant's cross-appeal from that same suppression order.

Oh. Sorry Colin. I knew there was a reason I went into the medical field, and not law...
