  • Boston Marathon bombing suspect’s lawyer argues again for venue change

    The Wall Street Journal - 02/19/2015

    Appeals Court Judge Juan Torruella, who had requested the oral arguments, grilled Mr. Weinreb with questions the defense has raised about alleged bias, and even read some inflammatory quotes from anonymous, potential jurors contained in a defense filing. Mr. Weinreb called those quotes “selective and misleading,” citing the argument Judge O’Toole used when he last rejected a venue-change request on Feb. 6.

    The three-judge panel didn’t immediately rule on the venue issue Thursday, and the odds of moving the trial remain slim, said Daniel Medwed, a professor at Northeastern University School of Law.
