Lawyers for two men convicted in the 1991 slaying of a Chasidic man in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn are questioning the jury selection process in one of the cases and the constitutionality of the federal civil rights law used in the other.

The two had been convicted on charges related to the stabbing death of Yankel Rosenbaum.
