Why 'El Chapo' Guzman's Lawyers Are Demanding A New Trial

CNN reports Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's attorneys are asking the court to review possible juror misconduct.

Some jurors allegedly violated the judge's prohibition against following news coverage of Guzman's federal trial as it unfolded.

In their motion, the former Sinaloa cartel boss's lawyers sought a hearing and possibly a new trial.

In an interview, one unnamed juror claimed at least five fellow jurors violated the judge's orders by following the case in the media during the trial.
