Criminal Law: Certified Questions

Here is an opinion from the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals that discusses the importance of doing certified questions properly, to wit:

The case is State v. Hawks, No. W2008-02657-CCA-R3-CD (Tenn. Crim App. Feb. 19, 2010).

This case stands for the proposition that Tenn. R. Crim. P. 37 appeals must form the certified question presented to the court in a very specific and not overly broad manner.
