“The juror undoubtedly has exposure for perjury,” said Lindsay K. Gerdes, a former federal and state prosecutor who until recently served in the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn. “That’s why not only did the government ask for an attorney to be appointed, the judge in fact agreed that was appropriate. And now this juror has decided to just retain their own attorney.”

Gerdes said the legal issues at play in Maxwell’s case stand out. “Most of these motions [for a new trial] are dismissed out of hand. But this is one that is getting immediate attention and very well may have a positive outcome for the defendant here,” she added.
