Sep. 1, 2022 – People v. Nguyen (6th Dist., H047893)

Because dismissal of a complaint is not an available form of relief when a state violates the notice requirement of the Interstate Agreement on Detainers (PC 1389), the Court of Appeal holds that the magistrate’s dismissal of the complaints was erroneous as a matter of law, and that a remand for a hearing on the reasonableness of the state’s delay would serve no purpose.
