My question involves criminal law for the state of: new jersey. I'm doing a motion for reconsideration of an Appeal I fought (and lost). In researching case law to substantiate my argument, I found a new jersey appellate opinion that was published after the date of my Appeal Oral argument (and after their decision to affirm). Can I cite this case as applicable and controlling? also, what about Appellate opinions that are "not released for publication" (but readily available on googal scholar or fast case or any other search). Can these cases be cited as controlling? what is the deal as to cases that are published or not yet released for publication??
