What’s the Current Status of the Adnan Syed Case?
Adnan Syed was granted a new trial in June 2016, on the grounds that his trial counsel was ineffective. The State of Maryland appealed that decision. The Court of Special Appeals (“COSA”) of Maryland ruled in Syed’s favor in March 2018. Maryland petitioned the highest court in Maryland (the Court of Appeals) for a writ of certiorari to appeal the COSA decision. Syed has cross-petitioned for certiorari as well. In July 2018, the Court of Appeals granted certiorari on issues raised by both the State and Syed. Syed requested bail while the appeals are pending, but the judge denied his request. He remains in prison.
What Happens Next?
The parties will brief and argue the issues in front of the Maryland Court of Appeals in 2018 and 2019. A decision is expected by August 31, 2019. Evidence Prof has more details in his blog.
Wow, All This Happened Since Serial?
Yes, that’s one of the goals of this website, to share the materials that have been made public since the Serial podcast concluded in 2014. We were inspired by the Undisclosed podcast, which aired in 2015, though we are not affiliated with the Undisclosed team. Check out trial transcripts, police reports, photos, and the latest appeal case details.

We have another site search page, which is still rather experimental, the results are not always what we expect. But, if you really want to get into the nitty gritty looking for a particular phrase or file, and you don’t mind taking a chance, this search may find more links than the main search.
A few other options:
