FILE - In this Feb. 24, 2016 file photo, Michael Skakel leaves the state Supreme Court after his hearing in Hartford, Conn. Skakel's lawyers filed a motion Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, asking the Connecticut Supreme Court to reconsider its decision to reinstate his murder conviction in a 1975 killing. The court ruled 4-3 on Dec. 30 that a lower court was wrong in 2013 when it ordered a new trial for Skakel. But the justice who wrote the majority decision left the court recently and his lawyers asked that a new judge be seated before the court hears the motion to reconsider. Skakel was convicted in 2002 of killing Martha Moxley in Greenwich in 1975 when they were teenage neighbors. He was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison and was freed after the 2013 ruling.
