Depends on your definition of quick

Hey! Working on a pro bono prosecution trial and had a quick question that I thought you (or someone you work with) might know the answer to. Defense counsel may try to have the charges dismissed on speedy trial grounds under CA Penal Code Section 1382. If the charges are dismissed, any idea if we (the state) could appeal that decision and what the requirements/procedures for doing so would be? Thanks!

If you truly consider the above a "quick question" for a first year law student, please be kind enough and post in the comments the law firm where you are a partner.

Two words: practice guide.

Something like Rutter always has the answers. And that, being a common and one-step sort of question, should have an entry in a good crim pro practice guide.

Or so I imagine.

You can visit the opulant Oakland office of Pahlke & Fletcher, LLP at 6301 Telegraph whenever you have another question.
