Prosecutors in the case against Rabbi Osher Eisemann on Monday filed an interlocutory appeal over Judge Joseph Paone’s decision to grant a new trial.
An interlocutory appeal means the prosecutors are not appealing a final judgement, but rather a ruling in an ongoing case as the judge did not dismiss the case in its entirety, but rather granted a new trial based on the same issues.
Interlocutory appeals are generally harder to get less likely to be reviewed and granted by an appellate court. It is yet to be seen whether Judge Paone will suspend plans for the retrial until the appeal process is over.
