Maryland is fighting back against a judge’s ruling to grant the subject of Serial a new trial. 

In a filing Tuesday, prosecutors in Attorney General Brian Frosh’s office appealed the decision to give Adnan Syed another day in court in connection with the murder of Hae Min Lee. The prosecutors argued there is “no new evidence, no change in law, no material link to the original justification for remand.”

Syed was granted a new trial by Judge Martin Welch on the grounds that cell phone data used to place Syed’s location and secure a conviction against him may have been unreliable. That information came from a separate legal researcher, who continued looking into the case after the podcast Serial was completed.
