The Minnesota Supreme Court is set to review a decision made by the Minnesota Court of Appeals to uphold the third-degree murder conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor.

Noor was convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond in 2017 while responding to Damond's 911 call about a possible sexual assault behind her south Minneapolis home.

Appeals court upholds Noor murder conviction, denies retrial

Oral arguments in the case will begin in June 2021, according to court records. 

The Court of Appeals upheld the conviction in February. Noor's attorneys argued that there was insufficient evidence to convict him of third-degree murder and the court wrongly allowed prosecutors to present two expert witnesses who provided similar testimony.
