MANHATTAN — A federal judge on Friday ordered a new trial for a self-made health care millionaire who was convicted six years ago of fatally drugging her eight-year-old developmentally disabled child in a luxury New York City hotel room in 2010.

The ruling by Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Sarah Cave stems from a 2014 closed courtroom discussion, requested by the lead prosecutor in the case.

Cave determined the off-the-record exchange regarding online material had violated Gigi Jordan’s Sixth Amendment right to a public trial.

At the time, one of Jordan’s lawyers repeatedly objected to the private discussion.

Prosecutors plan to appeal the decision.
