Ajay Dev Continues The Fight

In Third District’s Appellate decision regarding Ajay Dev’s case, the opinion was not based on correct facts.  In response, our appellate lawyer, Lauren Eskenazi, wrote a Petition for Review and pointed out the incorrect facts.  The Appellate Court decided not to grant the Petition for Review, but we wanted to share this document with you because it clearly demonstrates the facts of this case that were overlooked.  For more information, please go to the link below.

The next step in the process for Ajay Dev’s case is to ask the California Supreme Court to review his case.  It is rare that the California Supreme Court will take up a case, but we are hopeful. Ajay’s new lawyer is Cliff Gardner.   Cliff will represent Ajay in the continuation of the direct appeal as well as Habeas claims (claims and facts that were not part of the original case). If you would like to read Cliff’s request to the California Supreme Court, please go to the link below.

We know Ajay Dev is innocent, and that the 378-year sentence is absolutely ludicrous.  We will keep fighting to bring him home.  We know eventually the truth will come out, but until then, we hope to count on your continued support.
