*Wesley Snipes will return to court this month seeking to convince a central Florida judge that he deserves a new trial because his original jury was biased.

U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges will hear arguments Nov. 15, reports the AP.

Snipes argues some jurors decided he was guilty before hearing any evidence and prosecutors hid damaging information about a key witness.

The actor was found guilty of willfully failing to file federal tax returns. He faces a three-year prison sentence for tax-related crimes.

Defense lawyers say they received e-mails from two jurors who claim that three other members of the jury made up their minds before the 2008 trial began. An e-mail said the verdicts were a compromise.

Snipes has been free on bond while appealing.
