SJC grants Norman Zalkind and Ruth O’Meara-Costello’s petition for further appellate review of denial of speedy trial motion

On July 1, 2014, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court granted an application for further appellate review from the decision of the Massachusetts Appeals Court in Commonwealth v. Wallace, which upheld the denial of the defendant’s motion to dismiss the charges against him on speedy trial grounds. Norman Zalkind and Ruth O’Meara-Costello represent the defendant, who is charged with first-degree murder, and argue on appeal that his rights were violated when the Commonwealth of Massachusetts waited more than five years to return him to Massachusetts for trial following his arrest.
