Martha Stewart – Appeal

Jake Zamansky will be interviewed on CNN’s America Morning show at 7 am Thursday March 17, 2005 regarding Martha Stewart’s answers on appeal.

A three member panel of the United States Court of Appeal Second Circuit will hear the appeal for Martha’s conviction on making false statements to US Government officials and obstruction of justice. The basis of the appeal is that Larry Stewart, the ink expert, allegedly lied on the witness stand and that one of the jurors allegedly lied about his background.

Zamansky believes that none of the appeal issues go to the heart of the case and that the Appeals Court will confirm the jury verdict. Essentially “no harm no foul.”

Defense lawyers often come up with technical legal arguments but it is a very high bar for overturning a jury verdict which has not been met here.
