Attorney for Adnan Syed: Disregard ‘highly inappropriate’ affidavit from retired Baltimore chief judge

November 1, 2022

The attorney for Adnan Syed is asking the Maryland Court of Special Appeals to disregard an affidavit from the judge who presided over his second trial in support of an appeal in the case, calling it “nothing more than a highly inappropriate attempt by a former judicial officer” to condemn him. Assistant Public Defender Erica Suter, Syed’s attorney and director of the Innocence Project Clinic at the University of Baltimore School of Law, wrote in a nine-page motion and reply on Monday that retired Baltimore Circuit Judge Wanda Keyes Heard’s affidavit “does not and cannot provide any information on the question at issue,” which is whether the appeal is moot.
