An important deadline is approaching.

Steven Avery's attorney has until Monday, August 29th to file a motion in his case, but FOX6 News is hearing she may do it sooner.

The Netflix docuseries "Making A Murderer" put Avery back in the headlines, and now, it's up to Kathleen Zellner, his attorney, to prove he's innocent.

On Twitter in July, Zellner promised "a tsunami of new evidence is on the way."

Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey have been in prison for nearly a decade -- convicted in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.

Through tweets, Zellner has been hinting at her case involving "planted evidence" "cellphone tower records" and "DNA samples." She has even hinted at a new suspect.

Zellner is expected to file the motion as early as Thursday and she will have to do it in person.

Protests in Manitowoc followed the release of the Netflix docuseries.

If Avery's motion is filed this week, it will come two weeks after a federal judge overturned Dassey's conviction. The state has 90 days to decide whether to retry Dassey or whether he'll be released from prison.

Now, the question is, will Avery's case see new life as well?

      However 99% of the evidence should never have been allowed due to a MASSIVE conflict of interest – would Avery have been convicted witout the planted/made up evidence. I doubt it, you need to look at the EX boyfreind and the brother.

    I’m wondering whether she’ll ever file at all. If she’s come up with some important new evidence I think we’d have heard about it by now, since she tweets incessantly. Remember, she can’t file on the basis of any of the old arguments, she has to come up with something new and also important.

    Anyone with half a brain cqn see Avery and Dassey were rail roaded. But then that part of America is very low on IQ points.
