Brendan Dassey’s attorneys have asked a court of appeals to deny the state’s request asking the full court for a re-hearing.
In June, a three judge panel ruled that Dassey’s confession to helping his uncle Steven Avery rape and murder Teresa Halbach was coerced.
The state is now asking the full court of appeals to re-hear the case.
As to this latest request, the state cannot respond.
The decision now goes to the court.
People with the state say they are expecting a decision in about a month.
