(WASHINGTON) — The trial of Hunter Biden ended nearly two weeks ago with a swift conviction on all counts — but he continued to wage a long-shot bid to fight that outcome on Monday.

Attorneys for Biden requested a new trial in court papers filed Monday, arguing that his “convictions should be vacated” because trial commenced before a circuit court formally issued a mandate denying his appeal — a technical argument disputing not the merits of the case, but a procedural claim.

“Here, no mandate was issued during the trial or even now,” attorneys for Biden wrote. “Consequently, the conviction must be vacated.”
