Prosecutors: Goodman’s Wealth Bias Claim Not Grounds For New Trial
South Florida Crime
PALM BEACH COUNTY (CBSMiami) – Polo mogul John Goodman will not get a new DUI manslaughter trial, The Palm Beach Post reports in the South Florida Business Journal.
Goodman’s arguments for a new trial were dismissed by Florida prosecutors in a written answer to his appeal.
The answer, which was filed Wednesday, sets the stage for prosecutors and Goodman’s defense team to argue before the Fourth District Court of Appeal next year, according to the Post.
Goodman and his defense team claimed wealth bias and juror experiment were grounds for a new trial, but prosecutors dismissed the claims.
