“Serial” Goes Viral

The most popular podcast ever (at least so we think) is about a client currently represented by the Firm.

The Firm represents Adnan Syed, who was convicted in 2000 of the murder of Hae Min Lee. Our representation extends to his post-conviction petition, which was denied, and the appeal of that denial, which is currently pending in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

Sarah Koenig, a former Baltimore Sun reporter and now a reporter for NPR, has put together an exceptional multi-part podcast called “Serial.” It reexamines the Syed case with an eye toward determining whether he is guilty or innocent.

Serial has become extraordinarily popular; it has reportedly been downloaded from itunes more than 5 million times.
