Brown v. State

The Supreme Court dismissed Appellant’s appeal from a decision of the trial court that denied Appellant’s pro se petition for declaratory relief. In his petition, Appellant asked the trial court to enforce the terms of an alleged verbal plea agreement concerning his parole eligibility. Because Appellant did not join the director of the Arkansas Department of Correction (ADC) as a party to this action, there was no justiciable controversy as to the rights and obligations of the ADC under this action, and for the same reasons, Appellant’s allegation that the ADC violated his right to due process was not justiciable under the declaratory-judgment statute.
