The petition, filed by lawyers C. Justin Brown and Catherine Stetson along with other lawyers at the Washington law firm Hogan Lovells, stated that that basis for the Supreme Court to take up the case rested on the "straightforward legal issue" of ineffective counsel provided by Syed's trial attorney, Cristina Gutierrez, who is deceased.
The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a Maryland man's bid for a new trial based on information uncovered by the hit podcast "Serial". However, the Maryland Court of Appeals this past March made a decision to deny Syed a new trial and reinstated his conviction.
Prosecutors said Syed killed the 17-year-old Lee in 1999 in the parking lot of a Best Buy store shortly after school, and then buried her body in a shallow grave later that evening.

Syed has repeatedly denied murdering Lee and maintains his innocence.
Syed has argued his trial lawyer failed him by not calling an alibi witness, Asia McClain. "Syed should have the opportunity to present his alibi to a jury, and the jury - not the Maryland Court of Appeals - should decide its worth", the petition states.
A jury in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City convicted Syed of first-degree murder, robbery, kidnapping and false imprisonment on February 25, 2000. "Now it's done, so we can move forward", Rabia Chaudry, an attorney and friend of Syed's family, told the Associate Press. "He is doing fine".
