The arguments advanced by the Aaron Hernandez legal team now include an attempt to keep secret the in-court discussion of their arguments.
According to the Associated Press, Hernandez’s lawyers filed paperwork on Monday asking the Bristol Superior Court to rule that private conversations between Hernandez and the lawyers not be included in the online broadcast of hearings. The lawyers contend that the images violate the rules established for the electronic recording of courtroom proceedings.
“[P]rompt action” is requested. Which makes sense, given that Hernandez will be back in court on Tuesday for a status hearing in the Odin Lloyd murder case. Hernandez’s lawyers recently asked that the trial in the case be delayed from early October to early January.
