Paul Kamienski Case Law Library

Every filed court document, state and federal up to Paul Kamienski's release is linked below, along with important state and federal documents filed in connection with his lawsuits at the end of the list.

They detail Paul Kamienski's two-decade struggle to reverse his unlawful conviction as an accomplice in a 1983 double homicide for which he always maintained innocense.

This 22-plus-year continuing comprehensive reference section begins with the October 1987 Indictment by the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office and ends with the three federal rulings of Sept. 12 and 13, 2012.

Among the linked files are Paul's complete trial transcript; New Jersey and federal appeals including the Monday, June 15, 2009 U.S. District Court order releasing Paul on bail pending further review; the July 2, 2009 order denying the Ocean County Prosecutor's request for reconsideration by the three-judge panel and the entire Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit; the July 10, 2009 mandate; the July 24, 2009 bail modification; the July 31, 2009 writ of habeas corpus; the July 31, 2009 notice that Paul's federal case file has been closed; The U.S. Supreme Court Petition for Certiorari and responses; the January 19, 2010, one-word, "Denied," Order; Paul Kamienski's Motion to Vacate Bail; and the prosecutor's notice that it does not oppose removal of bail restrictions.

Also posted is audio from the oral arguments before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals on April 16, 2009. Oral argument by Ocean County Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Samuel Marzarella in which he was challenged to provide the court with any evidence that Paul Kamienski had foreknowledge of the robbery or killings will be of interest, as well as Attorney Timothy J. McInnis, Esq.'s opening argument and rebuttal. We've also linked the transcript of the complete oral arguments.
