Judge Nelson to Rule in morning Regarding Trayvon Martin fighting Texts as Long Court Day Results in Fireworks Between Defense (Don West & Mark O’Mara) and Judge Over Blaming the Prosecution for Withholding Evidence
George Zimmerman Murder Trial: After nearly 13 hours of court room hearings today … the night ended in fireworks!!!
Late last night tensions flared between the defense and prosecution as George Zimmerman’s defense attorney blasted the prosecution for withholding evidence. The defense stated that there was an ongoing discovery violation against the prosecution. The defense argued that they were mislead and the George Zimmerman’s US and Florida Constitutional rights have been violated. The defense also argued with the judge of the unreasonable work hours. It ended with the judge walking off the bench and saying court is in recess.
The hearing was highly contentious, with defense lawyer Don West vigorously asserting that failure to allow the evidence would violate Zimmerman’s constitutional rights, and blaming the prosecution for withholding evidence until early June as to the texts. West argued that it was unfair to hold the defense to strict authentication standards given the prosecution’s tactics.
