On Oct. 26, 2012, the State v. George Zimmerman was heard in court on two motions. In layman’s terms, Zimmerman wanted State witnesses not to talk to State Attorneys before O’Mara, his attorney, deposes them. Presiding Judge Nelson said “no’ denying Zimmerman’s motion.
The other motion was filed by the State for a gag order against all attorneys and their staff using the media to promote their positions. Judge Nelson is to rule on that on Monday.
Attorney West for Zimmerman, approached the podium in effort to regurgitate the statement of Witness 8, who is commonly known as “DeeDee” or Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend. Judge West refused to hear the matter re-argued as she entered order regarding the recorded statement last week.
Judge Nelson also set a Case Management calendar.
Originally, we presented videos of the hearing that were recorded by Trent Sawyer, (stateoftheinternet), and posted to his YouTube channel. Since the verdict, Trent has made the videos private and they are no longer available.
