Martha Stewart's lawyers are expressing their disappointment with a federal judge's decision to deny her a new trial.

They had asked for one, saying Stewart had been deprived of her right to a fair trial when a juror failed to disclose he'd once been arrested in a domestic dispute.

Today, exactly two months after her conviction for lying about a stock deal, the judge rejected her request.

In a statement, Stewart's lawyers said they regret that "a case about false statements was decided by a juror who appears to have made many false statements."

There's no comment from federal prosecutors.
