Ryan lawyers request new trial on mail fraud convictions

June 22, 2012

Friday, his lawyers asked the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to make the move.

The court had denied an earlier appeal but the US Supreme Court sent the issue back, due in part to an unrelated case.

Ryan's lawyers argue that he deserved a new trial because the verdict was based on flawed jury instructions and incorrect decisions made by the judge in his trial.
