Syed was sentenced to life in prison for the 1999 murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, killed while they were teenagers attending Woodlawn High School.
When Syed asked for his case to be reviewed in Maryland, a judge vacated the murder conviction in 2016.
In March, the Maryland Court of Appeals voted not to reopen the case, 4-3.
