Do all cases get a hearing on a 3.850 Post Conviction Motion in Miami?

When a trial court denies a Miami motion for post-conviction relief without an evidentiary hearing, Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.141 sets the standard for review as follows: “[u]nless the record shows conclusively that the appellant is entitled to no relief, the order shall be reversed and the cause remanded for an evidentiary hearing or other appropriate relief.”  Fla. R. App. P. 9.141. In McLin, the Florida Supreme Court explained, when reviewing the summary denial of a motion for postconviction relief pursuant to Florida Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.850, an appellate court should overturn the trial court’s denial when the appellant’s claims are either facially valid or not conclusively refuted by the record.  McLin v. State, 827 So. 2d 948, 954 (Fla. 2002). Florida courts have also explained, when a trial court summarily denies a claim made pursuant to Rule 3.850, the trial court must “either state its rationale in its decision or attach those specific parts of the record that refute each claim presented in the motion.”  Id. (citing Anderson v. State, 627 So. 2d 1170, 1171 (Fla. 1993)).  Specifically, “when the denial is not predicated on the legal insufficiency of the motion on its face, a copy of that portion of the files and records should be attached to the order.”  Id.  (citing Fla. R. Crim. P. 3.850(d)).  Indeed, the post-conviction court’s order must demonstrate the “motion, files and records in the case conclusively show that the movant is entitled to no relief.”  Read more about Miami post conviction motions: Miami Florida Post Conviction Petition
