Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath is expected to rule soon on whether International Polo Club Palm Beach founder John Goodman will get a new trial in his DUI manslaughter case surrounding allegations of misconduct by juror Dennis DeMartin.
If Colbath denies a new trial, then the matter will return to the 4th District Court of Appeal.
Goodman, meanwhile, remains on house arrest at his Wellington compound after posting a $7 million bond.
