Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is asking the judge to let him back into the George Floyd trial.
Freeman's office is asking Judge Peter Cahill to reconsider his order that disqualified county prosecutors from the trial of four former Minneapolis officers accused in Floyd's death.
Cahill ruled last week that it was sloppy that Freeman and three other county prosecutors were present in an early interview of the Hennepin County Medical Examiner who conducted Floyd's autopsy.
The motion disputes Cahill's determination that the attorneys violated a rule that led to their disqualification. The motion includes an affadavit from William J. Wernz, the former director of the Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility.
No date has been set for Judge Cahill to hear the motion.
