THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

SUPREME COURT

 

In Case No. 2002-0678, Petition of Raymond J. Bahmer, the court on July 15, 2003, issued the following order:

Defendant’s motion for reconsideration is granted in part. The slip opinion issued on June 13, 2003, is withdrawn.

Because the trial court's finding of incompetency in this case was effective March 6, 2002, the twelve-month review period in RSA 135:17-a has already expired. Thus, this matter is moot. After further consideration, and in light of the issuance of the decision by the United States Supreme Court in United States v. Sell, 539 U.S. ___ (decided June 16, 2003), we conclude that this petition should be dismissed as moot.

Reconsideration granted in part; petition for writ of certiorari dismissed.

Brock, C. J., and Broderick, Nadeau, Dalianis and Duggan, JJ., concurred.

 

Eileen Fox,

Clerk
