Robert Duane Beeter v. State of North Dakota
Case Number: 2018 ND 129
Judge: Per Curiam.
Court: SUPREME COURT STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA
Plaintiff's Attorney: Ashlei A. Neufeld, Assistant State's Attorney
Defendant's Attorney: Laura Claire Ringsak
Description: Robert Beeter appeals from a district court judgment summarily dismissing his application for post-conviction relief. Beeter argues that the district court erred by concluding his application was barred by the statute of limitations. He contends the 2017 amendment to N.D.C.C. § 19-03.1-23(1)(a)(2) is a new interpretation of law and the district court should have retroactively applied it to his case. See N.D.C.C. § 29-32.1-01(3)(a)(3).
Outcome: We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(7), concluding Beeter's application was time-barred. See State v. Iverson, 2006 ND 193, ¶¶ 6-8, 721 N.W.2d 396 (denying retroactive application of statute that became effective after final conviction).
