The man, jailed for life for arranging an acid attack on his ex-girlfriend in Lowestoft, has won the first stage of his legal attempt to clear his name.
Anthony Riley, 27, of Raglan Road in the town was convicted of planning the assault on Adele Bellis, 24, which left her with life-changing burns on her face and head in 2014.
His co-defendant Jason Harrison, 29, of Princes Road, was jailed for four-and-a-half years for carrying out the actual attack at a bus stop on London Road South.
Riley's lawyers have been at the Court of Appeal in London arguing that Harrison made a deal with prosecutors and was never cross-examined by them during the trial at Ipswich Crown Court in 2015.
Judges agreed that Riley should have the chance to appeal against his conviction, but they said he faced an "uphill struggle" to convince them it should be overturned.

Ipswich MP Ben Gummer was on the panel which helped select Foster + Partners to design the £77m Upper Orwell Crossings Project bridge.
He said: "This is one of the most important moments for Ipswich for many decades.
"The fact that we will have what will be a globally recognised bridge of beauty will say something powerful about our town’s ambition and our place not just in our county, or our region, or our country, but in the world."
Its aim is to improve east to west connections across the River Orwell in Ipswich, and ease congestion on the Star Lane/Key Street/College Street one-way gyratory system to the north of the waterfront.
A competition run by the Royal Institute of British Architects and Suffolk County Council has selected Foster + Partners to design a new bridge for Ipswich.
Its aim is to improve east to west connections across the River Orwell and the Department of Transport has agreed to provide about £77m to help fund it.
Foster + Partners was selected from a shortlist of five architectural practices.
The company was founded by Lord Foster and has designed buildings all over the world - as well as the black glass-clad Willis Building in Ipswich town centre.
Here's a look at the artist's impressions of what the new crossing could look like across Lake Lothing:
Suffolk County Council has released a video showing "indicative alignment and design" of the long-awaited third crossing proposed for Lowestoft.
However, the council issues the caveat that plans still requires a lot of work to refine exactly where it will be and how the estimated £100m construction will look.
Design advisors Design Council Cabe have been selected to help with the process.

As the search for missing RAF airman Corrie Mckeague enters its fifth day, we've been sent the latest images from the landfill site at Milton, near Cambridge.
The 23-year-old gunner was last seen on a night out in Bury St Edmunds in the early hours of 24 September.
Police traced the route of a bin lorry that picked up refuse from the Horseshoe area of the town, where Mr Mckeague was last seen on CCTV.
They now say they are "confident" his body will be found at the landfill site.
It could take the team of eight trained officers up to 10 weeks to sift through the rubbish, which covers an area of about 920 sq m (9,900 sq ft).
Meanwhile Peter Aldous, Conservative MP for Waveney, says the appointment of Design Council Cabe will in no way hinder the delivery of Lowestoft's third water crossing at Lake Lothing.
He said: "This design work will not delay delivery of the third crossing as it is integral to the other necessary preparatory work is taking place.
"It is important that once Design Council Cabe have carried out their initial work, they set out their ideas, so that local people can share their views and important input on all aspects of the Third Crossing in the upcoming public consultation."
Mr Aldous is pictured showing former Prime Minister David Cameron the Lowestoft harbour area during a visit in the run-up to the 2015 General Election.
East Anglian Daily Times
Here's today's front page of the East Anglian Daily Times:
Design Council Cabe, enlisted to help Suffolk County Council and its team through the process of planning the Lake Lothing crossing, says it wants to make Lowestoft people proud.
Clare Devine, executive director of architecture, built environment and design, said: "Through our extensive experience on major infrastructure projects across the country, we can help to ensure that the design of the bridge and the surrounding landscape provides safer and more pleasant connections, encourages walking and cycling, and creates a new bridge which people in Lowestoft can be proud of."
Former Prime Minister David Cameron announced that the government would provide £70m to the project , which is estimated will cost about £100m, during a visit to Suffolk in March 2016.
Suffolk County Council has enlisted the support of design experts, Design Council Cabe , to help in the creation of the long-awaited Third Crossing at Lake Lothing in Lowestoft , which is estimated to cost in the region of £100m.
The organisation will play an integral part in leading design workshops and reviews with the project design team, using an independent design advice panel drawn from their network of experts.
That panel will include architects, landscape architects, urban planners and designers and engineers.
Councillor Guy McGregor, Suffolk County Council 's lead on the crossing, said engaging the experts was an "important step" and the crossing would bring "significant transport benefits" to motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.
"Design is a really important element of the scheme," he said.
"Their scrutiny will ensure we meet the key objectives of the project, while also delivering the scheme on time and on budget."
Suffolk came sixth with 121 sub-standard bridges.
Topping the list is Devon with 249, but more locally Essex came in third place with 160.
Last December, a report to Suffolk County Council showed that 350 bridges were in very poor condition and 147 were in a "severe state", which means they'll need attention within the next 12 months.
The picture above shows the damaged bridge at Great Bealings near Ipswich.
It was hit by a vehicle in September, but cannot be fixed during the winter months due to the nature of the repairs required.
Cloud will increase this afternoon, with most places staying dry in Suffolk, but with a spot of drizzle over the hills.
The west might benefit from brighter spells, but it'll be cloudy in the east. Maximum temperature 10C (50C). For more precise detail where you are, visit BBC Weather .

A 23-year-old burglar who brandished a meat cleaver and assaulted a police officer has been jailed for 10 years.
James Preston, from Bardfield Road, Colchester was appearing at Ipswich Crown Court where he had already admitted a number of burglary offences and possession of bladed weapon, after incidents just up the A12 in Suffolk.
Preston admitted a burglary in East Mill Green, Bentley, and an attempted burglary at a property in Capel Road, Bentley, all during a crime spree on 1 February.
It was whilst the Capel Road burglary was in progress that officers were called, and they managed to detain him after he "fled the scene on foot" towards the A12.
The defendant also admitted an aggravated burglary with intent at an address in Pound Lane, Capel St Mary, possessing a meat cleaver, and assaulting a police officer.
Two hospitals in East Anglia have been praised for becoming smoke-free.
The two trusts officially became tobacco-free on Wednesday.
Mr Selbie said: "They are based in two of the largest towns in East Anglia, making them the main port of call for thousands of people, both as a workplace and for treatment.
"The decision to take the final step and go tobacco-free has not been taken lightly but with joint chief executive Nick Hulme keen to improve the health of his staff, patients and anyone who visits the sites, this was an important step forward in combating the detrimental effect of smoking on the population, community and the NHS."

A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries in a crash in Bury St Edmunds yesterday evening.
The biker - a man in his 50s - collided with a blue Volvo on Oakes Road during the rush hour.
The motorcyclist is at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge being treated for a life-changing injury. The road was shut for nearly four hours for police investigations.
Four men and one woman have been arrested in connection with a suspected burglary in Ipswich.
Officers were called to an address on Old Foundry Road in the town after reports of some suspicious activity last night at 22:25.
Four men, aged 32, 31, 19 and 17 and one woman, aged 26, were all arrested on suspicion of burglary and have been taken in for questioning.
Passers-by came to the help of a 77-year-old woman as she fell victim to an attempted robbery in Newmarket earlier this week.
Members of the public managed to detain the suspect in the attack which left the woman with cuts and bruises - for which she required hospital treatment - in Exeter Road around 19:10 on Wednesday.
She had been the victim of a bag snatch as she walked along the road, near to the junction with Rayes Lane.
A 25-year-old woman has been charged in connection with the attempted robbery and is due to appear at Ipswich Magistrates' Court today.
Police say they would like to thank the members of the public who helped.

The boss of a chain of academy schools in Norfolk and Suffolk says we should consider the idea of opening new grammar schools here.
Dame Rachel De Souza, who heads the Inspiration Trust which runs 13 academies and free schools in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Thetford and Cromer, said any new policy which could improve education for children in the county should be closely examined.
"With pupils who are out in the coastal areas where there are high levels of deprivation it is an absolute fight to get a great education," she said.
"If we can make it better using whatever new policy comes in, for these pupils, I think it is our duty to look at it.
"We'd be mad not too."

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says striker Kieffer Moore (pictured) will have to bide his time before making his full debut for the club.
The 24-year-old joined the Blues from Forest Green Rovers in January, but has yet to start a match for his new club, making eight substitute appearances so far.
"It's difficult to leave Tom Lawrence and David McGoldrick out," said McCarthy. "It would be wrong, they've been our best two players.
"So leaving one of those out to put Kieffer in - it's not going to happen, not this weekend [ at Barnsley ] for sure."
Rail passengers in on the East Anglian mainline face delays due to a defective track between Stratford and Liverpool Street in east London.

The transport secretary says today's announcement that traffic lights will be installed on the A11 Fiveways roundabout near Mildenhall will make a big difference to the thousands of drivers who use it every day.
Chris Grayling told the BBC "this will address a frustration which has been felt by motorists in East Anglia for a long time".
"This is a junction which has seen congestion too often and the work will smooth the flow of traffic through it," he said.
The £400,000 project is part of £2.4m pot of funding made available this morning for smaller road projects across East Anglia following Wednesday's budget.
The other projects which are being funded haven't been named yet.
It'll be a chilly start to the day but during the morning, milder air will push in and cloud will thicken. For many it will stay dry today but there is a chance of a spot of rain at times with a high of 11C (52F).

Traffic lights are to be installed at the Fiveways roundabout on the A11 at Barton Mills.
The government has announced that work on the £400,000 scheme will start in Autumn 2018 and should be complete by the following spring.
It follows a long campaign by local residents and motorists who've complained about frequent accidents on the roundabout and congestion at peak times.
