Interlocutory Appeal — Double Jeopardy Issue

State v. Barbara E. Harp, 2005 WI App 250
For Harp: Aaron N. Halstead, Kathleen Meter Lounsbury, Danielle L. Carne

Issue/Holding: ¶1, n. 3:

We grant Harp’s petition because the mistrial order implicates her right against double jeopardy. “Given the serious constitutional questions raised by claims of double jeopardy, review of such orders will often be necessary to protect the accused from ‘substantial or irreparable injury,’ one of the three criteria for testing the appropriateness of review under sec. 808.03(2).” State v. Jenich,94 Wis. 2d 74, 97, 292 N.W.2d 348 (1980)
