Tory Lanez's attorney's appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday (May 9th) where they argued a new trial for the rapper. As previously reported, Lanez was convicted back in December of felony assault in the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion.
According to court reporter Meghann Cuniff, Lanez’s attorneys argued ” ineffective assistance of counsel. Lanez’s lawyers’ supplement apparently criticizes Shawn Holley’s work for Lanez and says she had a conflict that pushed George Mgdesyan into the case with little time to prepare.”
Cuniff added that at one point, “Judge Herriford asking why Lanez’s lawyer didn’t object in trial. That’s his question to Barhoma and Baez about the new expert they hired to analyze the DNA. New expert says Lanez’s DNA was excluded. Herriford wants to know why no one objected to DNA during trial.”
The lawyers continued to argue for a new case for the remainder of the day.
