SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT
November 19, 1968
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
NORMAN J. BRABSON, APPELLANT
Appeal from an order of Supreme Court, New York County, entered April 7, 1967, denying without a hearing a motion in the nature of a writ of error coram nobis, is dismissed.
Concur -- Botein, P. J., Stevens, Capozzoli, Rabin and McNally, JJ.
Appellant was sentenced to death upon his conviction of murder, first degree, in June, 1940. The conviction was affirmed. (People v. Keolo, 284 N. Y. 381.) The sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. No appeal lies to this court from a denial of coram nobis where the "judgment is of death". Such appeal lies only directly to the Court of Appeals (Code, Crim. Pro., § 517, subd. 3) upon obtaining "a certificate from a judge of the court of appeals granting permission to appeal" (Code Crim. Pro., § 520, subd. 2). (People v. Brabson, 28 A.D.2d 989.)
