Kanios v. Marlow and State



Case is a petition for certiorari to the Maryland Court of Appeals which raises issues of first impression. The District Court of Maryland denied a crime victim the ability to obtain her property right to restitution. Victim filed an application for leave to appeals to the Court of Special Appeals. The Court of Special Appeals transferred the case to the Circuit Court for Calvert County which dismissed the appeal and denied the victim's request for mandamus and certiorari. Victim raises in her Petition to the Court of Appeals various rights and remedies available to her including under the U.S. Constitution and the Maryland Constitution. This is a case of first impression of the enforceability of crime victims’ rights beyond the statutory rights provided by the Maryland legislature.
