Judge Nelson ordered the exclusion of Mr. Owen and Mr. Reich’s testimony at trial. Will the state ask for an interlocutory appeal?
Yesterday the Judge explained in court that while she may have her decision on the Frye hearing done late on Friday, the attorneys will not know that decision until Monday. When Mr. West pressed her and asked could she not just let them know the decision and they could read the response on Monday the judge replied she doesn’t have a fax machine at home and she would prefer to answer in the way she usually answers. That is submitting the decision with its reasons in writing into the court record. So the attorneys start opening statements on Monday morning not knowing if they will be allowed to bring in experts or have the need to debunk expert testimony.
Thank you to everyone who has helped in the fund-raising effort. Last we heard (4pm June 9th) the fund was in excess of $85K. I’ve been advised that no update will be given until after a jury is selected. I assume all energies are being focussed on jury selection right now. The goal is to get $120K. Please continue to spread the news that help is needed. Even a $5 donation will help. This is one worry we can take off George Zimmerman’s shoulders. Thanks again.
For newcomers, please know that racist remarks will be trashed. If you are presenting yourself as a George Zimmerman supporter, please keep in mind this man is in a fight for his life. Conduct yourself in a way that won’t bring heartache and/or embarrassment to the Zimmerman family.
