USA Today Quotes Prof. Jon Lee on Grounds for Appeal in Chauvin Case

In a an article in USA Today, Professor Jon Lee discussed grounds for appeal in the Chauvin case. He said the inescapability from news and social media coverage was a likely argument.  “Part of the concern here is that the judge has instructed the jury not to listen to the news," Lee said. "But as Chauvin’s attorney has argued, the collective media coverage of this trial extends well beyond news coverage, and in particular in light of the shooting in Brooklyn Center. I think that was difficult to avoid hearing about for (juror) residents in the area.”
