California Court Of Appeal, Second District: Habeas Corpus Petition Granted (2010)

Attorney Bruce Zucker successfully secured the release of a person who had been wrongfully retained on parole. In a unanimous decision, the California Court of Appeal, Second District, Division Two agreed with Mr. Zucker that his client had been wrongfully retained on parole since 2008 and that his parole expired by operation of law in 2008. The state tried to argue that it had preserved jurisdiction over his client before his parole expired. However, Attorneys Zucker and Randy S. Kravis were able to convince the Court of Appeal that the state failed to act in a timely fashion and that his parole expired by operation of law in 2008. (In re Torres (2010) 186 Cal.App.4th 909)
