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 lawyers took the actions before arguments were heard in the cases of Lemrick Nelson and Charles Price at a U.S. appeals court. The two had been convicted on charges related to the stabbing death of Yankel Rosenbaum.
