According to the Associated Press, Spector's lawyer Dennis Riordan claims that the earlier conviction at a California appeals court should be thrown out due to Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler expressing his opinion about an expert's testimony in court. Riordan contends that by doing so, Judge Fidler became a witness for the prosecution, which, of course, is a no-no for judges.
Spector's camp's filing is expected to be read in court Friday, Dec. 16. Within the appeal statement, Riordan specifies that Judge Fidler's videotaped comments and image were used during prosecution's summation. The imprisoned producer has argued this before during his previous appeal process, but was denied due to a delayed filing, and sent back to jail for second-degree murder.
Spector is currently serving 19 years to life in federal prison for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.
