Appellate Brief


Legal efforts to gain Sundiata’s release on parole have continued for many years. At the end of 2020, this Appellate Brief was filed on Sundiata’s behalf in support of his appeal as of right to the New Jersey Supreme Court. It is based on the opinion of the Hon. Garry S. Rothstadt, J.A.D., who dissented from the Appellate Court’s 2019 decision affirming the parole board’s 2010 denial of release. Judge Rothstadt dissented on the ground that there was no evidence to support the continued denial of parole.
