Dana Siegelman has been one of the most active advocates for her father, who claims his prosecution on corruption charges was orchestrated by Republicans seeking to end his political career.
A panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments in Siegelman's case in January.
Siegelman's lawyers said there was new evidence suggesting that a prosecutor with ties to the Republican party remained involved in the case despite her recusal.
Prosecutors said the court has already rejected that claim.
A federal jury in 2006 convicted Siegelman and former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy of bribery and other charges for swapping an appointment to a state board for Scrushy arranging $500,000 in contributions to Siegelman's 1999 lottery campaign.
Siegelman is serving a six-and-a-half year sentence and is at the federal prison in Oakdale, La. He is scheduled for release in August 2017, according to the Bureau of Prisons.
Obama's former White House counsel, Gregory P. Craig, is one of Siegelman's lawyers.
