This is the second time this year that Spector's attorneys have been rejected in their attempt to overturn his conviction. In May, his lawyers argued that his conviction resulted from a prejudiced trial in which jurors heard testimony from five women who claimed that he had threatened them with a gun years before actress Lana Clarkson was found shot dead in the foyer of Spector's mansion in 2003.
Spector's attorneys ultimately hope to grant their client a third trial. His first trial, back in 2007, was declared a mistrial after jurors deadlocked.
