Judge Denies Avery Motion for New Trial

A judge is denying Steven Avery’s latest motion for a new trial. In his latest appeal, Avery’s attorneys argued the state failed to turn over a CD with various reports – which entitled him to a new trial. But an 11-page decision points out that all evidence on the disc was available to both the prosecution and defense prior to his trial. The judge claims she does not have authority from the Court of Appeals to review another claim that Avery’s attorneys were ineffective by fully examining the CDs that were turned over. He could still appeal this decision.
