People v. Lopez, 58

In four cases involving criminal appeals that were not pursued for more than a decade after the filing of a notice of appeals, the Appellate Division's dismissal of the appeals on the People's motion are: 1) affirmed in the cases of People v. Perez, People v. Calaff and People v. Dockery, where the dismissals did not violate those defendants' constitutional rights and were proper exercises of discretion; but 2) reversed and remitted as to the case, People v. Lopez, so that counsel can be appointed to represent defendant Lopez in opposing the dismissal of his appeal.
