A retrial in the Crown Heights riots is slated to get under way this week. Lemrick Nelson faces a new civil trial after a judge ruled last year that a judge in the 1997 federal trial had improperly manipulated the selection of jurors based on their race and religion. Nelson is accused of violating Yankel Rosenbaum’s civil rights when he killed the yeshiva student in 1991, setting off riots in the Brooklyn neighborhood.
