A federal appeals court says it will reconsider Barry Bonds' felony conviction for obstruction of justice.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that a special panel of 11 judges will review a 2011 jury verdict finding Major League Baseball's all-time homerun leader guilty of giving evasive testimony to a grand jury investigating elite athletes' use of performance-enhancing drugs.

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit last year upheld the conviction, which stems from a rambling answer Bonds gave in response to a question about whether he received injections from anyone other than his doctor.

Bonds has already served his sentence of 30 days' house arrest and paid a $4,100 fine.

The court has not set a date for a new hearing.
