Appeal from the District Court of Burleigh County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Bruce A. Romanick, Judge.
Dawn M. Deitz, Assistant State's Attorney, Bismarck, N.D., for plaintiff and appellee; submitted on brief.
Tilmer Everett, Bismarck, N.D., defendant and appellant; on brief.
Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Daniel J. Crothers, Lisa Fair McEvers, Carol Ronning Kapsner, Dale V. Sandstrom.
[¶1] Tilmer Everett appeals from an order denying his petition alleging abuse of process and violation of his due process rights in his conviction for gross sexual imposition. Everett's conviction of gross sexual imposition was affirmed in State v. Everett, 2008 ND 126, 756 N.W.2d 344. The denials of his numerous post-conviction applications also have been affirmed. See Everett v. State, 2012 ND 189, 821 N.W.2d 385; Everett v. State, 2011 ND 221, 806 N.W.2d 438; Everett v. State, 2010 ND 226, 795 N.W.2d 37; Everett v. State, 2010 ND 4, 789 N.W.2d 282; Everett v. State, 2008 ND 199, 757 N.W.2d 530.
[¶2] In February 2014, Everett filed this petition alleging abuse of process and denial of his due process rights, contending the district court improperly granted the State's demand for a change of judge in the early stages of the underlying criminal proceeding. We affirm the order denying his petition under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(1), (6) and (7); see Everett, 2010 ND 4, 789 N.W.2d 282 (res judicata precludes claims or variations of claims raised in previous proceedings, and misuse of process precludes claims that could have been raised in a prior post-conviction proceeding or other proceeding).
