Adnan Syed case: Maryland attorney general’s office backs Hae Min Lee’s brother in appeal; Syed says legal argument is moot

January 10, 2023

In back-to-back filings Monday night, the Maryland Office of the Attorney General and a lawyer for Adnan Syed took opposing stances on the appeal of Hae Min Lee’s brother in the case made famous by the “Serial” podcast. The attorney general’s office said Young Lee’s appeal should continue, agreeing with his position that the September hearing at which Syed’s conviction was overturned was legally deficient and should be redone — the first legal argument filed in the high-profile case under recently sworn-in Attorney General Anthony Brown, who has declined to publicly take a position on the case.
