    okay - this article says:

    In the same opinion, which was made in response to Scott Peterson’s automatic appeal, the court upheld his 2004 conviction for killing his wife, Laci Peterson, and the couple’s unborn son, Conner.

    But last week, the court made a ruling in Peterson’s petition for habeas corpus, which could lead to his conviction being overturned.

    The court ruled that a San Mateo Superior Court judge must decide whether prejudicial misconduct by a juror occurred when she failed to disclose that she’d been the victim of a crime and obtained a restraining order against the perpetrator.

    A hearing in that case is scheduled for Nov. 13.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Dave Harris, appearing remotely over video conference along with District Attorney Birgit Fladager, said they wanted to wait for the outcome of that San Mateo hearing before beginning jury selection because they might have to retry the entire case.
    [.....]
    Pat Harris agreed to a “limited time waiver” of two weeks so that he had time to talk to talk to Peterson.

    The next hearing in Stanislaus Court will be held on Nov. 6.
    [.....]
    No one from Laci’s family was at the hearing and Laci’s mother, Sharon Rocha, has not responded to recent requests for comment.

    Convicted killer Scott Peterson will be back in court at 830 this morning. I’m in Modesto to cover it. Peterson was convicted in 2004 for killing his wife Laci and unborn son. Laci was 8 months pregnant. Peterson could, it’s a long shot, get a new trial one day @kron4news

    I don’t even know what to say. I just hope they send his sorry behind straight back to death row. Do not pass go. Do not get a retrial. He makes me sick!

    I agree. He needs to go away, the end.
    However what does Laci's family want?

    The DA would first confer with Laci's family, and I would be surprised it they didn't want the sentence retrial to be a death sentence. I can't believe Laci's family has to endure this nightmare one more time.

    Noooooooo!!!!!!!

    Look at the bad precedent this sets, every single decision done by a judge can be second guessed for a "do over"? We didn't get the results we wanted so we get another chance?! When does it end? Does every single trial have to go through all of the appeals process to the Supreme Court?!

    Too bad Laci and Connor didn't get another chance at life.
