BOSTON - Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a federal appeals court Wednesday to overturn a judges decision to not move his upcoming trial out of state. Jeroen Zoet Jersey .The appeal was filed with the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hours after U.S. District Court Judge George OToole denied the change-of-venue request and a motion seeking a nine-month delay in the start of the trial. The defence is now asking OToole to postpone jury selection, scheduled to begin Monday, pending the outcome of the appeal.Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to federal charges connected to the April 2013 explosions at the marathon finish line, which killed three people and injured more than 260. He could face the death penalty if convicted.The defence lawyers, in their appeal to the higher court, again argued Tsarnaev couldnt receive a fair trial in the Boston federal courthouse a couple of miles from where the bombing occurred. Prosecutors, they said, were likely to depict the crimes as having affected not only those killed and injured but nearly the entire greater Boston community.Thus, every member of the jury pool is, in effect, an actual victim of the charged offences, the defence attorneys wrote.As an alternative to ordering the trial moved, the lawyers suggested the appeals court order OToole to hold a hearing on disputed issues of fact and reconsider the previous change-of-venue motions.OToole said in his ruling earlier Wednesday he would provide a detailed explanation for it later.In rejecting Tsarnaevs first request in September to move the trial, OToole said defence lawyers had failed to show that extensive pretrial media coverage of the bombings had prejudiced the jury pool to the point an impartial jury couldnt be chosen in Boston.The defence has compared the coverage to that in the case of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, whose trial was moved to Denver. McVeigh was convicted and put to death for the bombing, which killed 168 people.In Wednesdays appeals court filing, Tsarnaevs lawyers noted The Associated Press recently named the aftermath of the marathon bombing the top Massachusetts news story of 2014 and Gov.-elect Charlie Baker, in response to a question posed by The Boston Globe in October, said Tsarnaev was the living person he despised the most.Prosecutors say Tsarnaev, 21, and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, planted and detonated two pressure cooker bombs. Tamerlan died following a firefight with police several days after the bombings. Dzhokhar was captured later that day, wounded and hiding in a boat parked in a backyard in suburban Watertown.Also Wednesday, OToole issued a decorum order, prohibiting courtroom spectators from wearing clothing, buttons or other items that carry any message or symbol addressing the issues related to this case that may be or become visible to the jury. The ban includes law enforcement uniforms and badges, except for those worn by on-duty U.S. marshals or court security officers.Defence lawyers said in motions seeking a trial delay the prosecution has not handed over everything they have requested, including information they believe may show Tsarnaev was under his brothers influence.The defence also wanted more time to review information regarding Stephen Silva, who recently pleaded guilty to having possessed the gun prosecutors said the bombing suspects used to kill a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer.In a court filing opposing the request for a delay, prosecutors rejected complaints by Tsarnaevs lawyers about their ability to digest the volume of material provided by the government. Prosecutors said much of that information was demanded by the defence and voluntarily turned over by the government in the spirit of openness. Quincy Promes Jersey . I suppose Sternberg has earned the right to speak out since his Rays, despite one of the lowest payrolls in the Majors at $58 million, are entering the final weekend of the regular season holding down the first Wild Card spot in the American League, one game ahead of Cleveland and two up on Texas. Kenny Tete Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. http://www.soccernetherlandsshop.us/Vincent-Janssen-Netherland-Jersey/ . Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51.Regina, SK (SportsNetwork.com) - After leading 24-7 heading into the final quarter, the Saskatchewan Roughriders fended off a furious comeback attempt and held off the Edmonton Eskimos, 24-17, in the final regular season game of the 2014 season at Mosaic Stadium. Quarterback Tino Sunseri connected with Rob Bagg early in the second half on a 40-yard major to give Saskatchewan (10-8) a 23-4 advantage. A late-game fumble recovery for the Roughriders allowed the home squad too run valuable time off the clock in the win. Virgil van Dijk Jersey. Quarterback Matt Nichols snuck in a short-yardage touchdown late in the game to put Edmonton (12-6) down by a single major. But the visitors couldnt get an offensive drive going on their final possession, and fell short in the comeback as time expired. Edmonton had already locked up the second seed out of the West Division prior to tonights meeting, while both teams are Grey Cup playoff bound.
