What was said between the judge and attorneys on the final day of the Christopher Deedy murder trial?

Transcripts of the courtroom communications are being kept under seal, but a media attorney wants them released.

The final day of Deedy’s trial was held under closed session before Judge Karen Ahn declared a mistrial.

Last month, the state Supreme Court decided that Judge Ahn must make a ruling on whether to release the transcripts to the public.

Deedy, a federal agent, was charged in the 2011 fatal shooting of Kollin Elderts at a Waikiki McDonald’s restaurant.

Judge Ahn will issue a ruling within 21 days.

Deedy’s retrial is scheduled for June.
