John Goodman attorneys want retrial moved

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX)--New defense attorneys for John Goodman plan to file a motion to change the venue for his retrial.

That revelation was made during a status check at the Palm Beach County Courthouse Wednesday morning.

Judge Jeffrey Colbath said due to publicity and allegations of juror misconduct the case might have to be moved outside Palm Beach County for Goodman to get a fair trial.

It's also possible a jury could be brought to Palm Beach County from another city.

Goodman, the International Polo Club Palm Beach founder, was convicted of DUI manslaughter in connection with the death of University of Central Florida student Scott Wilson,

However, in May Judge Colbath said defense attorneys had proven allegations of juror misconduct and he ordered a new trial.

Goodman remains under house arrest.
