Yesterday, the 2nd District court of appeals rejected a motion filed on March 12, 2008 by Phil Spector's defense attorney, Doron Weinberg to replace Judge Fidler, citing bias. The ruling was reached without comment.
Spector is accused of shooting Lana Clarkson in his Alhambra castle-like home in the early morning hours of February 3rd, 2003. His first trial ended in a hung jury, 10-2 in favor of conviction last September.
Besides Laurean being in FBI custody in Mexico, this is the best news I've heard in the last few days. I believe that Spector's attorneys can still appeal to the California Supreme Court but if they do, let's hope he gets the same result.
