Derek Chauvin’s Appeal Denied by Supreme Court in George Floyd Murder Case

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s appeal of his conviction for the 2020 murder of George Floyd, which galvanized mass protests that summer against police brutality and racism against Black Americans.

Chauvin’s attorney argued that his client was denied a fair trial in 2021 after a Minnesota trial court rejected his request for a change of venue and to sequester the jury. The extensive pretrial publicity and protests in the area would have affected jurors’ decisions, the petition stated.
