Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Court of appeal's judgment holding that a prior dismissal of a felony complaint against defendant barred his current prosecution for the same conduct as a misdemeanor is reversed where the filing and dismissal of the originally charged felony for vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, followed in immediate succession by the filing of the lesser misdemeanor charge of vehicular manslaughter with ordinary negligence, did not constitute successive filings for the same offense and thus Penal Code sec. 1387(a) did not preclude the People from proceeding on the misdemeanor complaint.
