George Zimmerman lawyers to judge: Sanction state for 'personal attacks'
Hearing Tuesday in Trayvon Martin shooting case.
10:41 a.m. EDT, April 26, 2013

George Zimmerman's defense team has filed a slew of new documents with the court in advance of next week's hearing in his second-degree murder case — including another request for sanctions against the prosecution.

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, on Friday replied to a blistering filing issued by prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda last month.

The prosecutor, responding to a defense motion which argued the state delayed in turning over important information to Zimmerman and should be sanctioned, in March called O'Mara a grandstander who "courts anything resembling a microphone or camera."

In his reply, O'Mara says de la Rionda's March filing was full of "scurrilous and unfounded personal attacks," and should be struck from the record. O'Mara also asks the court to "enter whatever additional sanctions it deems appropriate."

"Such behaviors have, in similar cases, subjected the offending attorney to sanctions and disciplinary proceedings," O'Mara writes.

O'Mara also filed a series of affidavits in support of another request aimed at penalizing the state: He wants the state to pay more than $4,500 in costs associated with depositions which were delayed when de la Rionda objected to them being videotaped.

The affidavits, signed by several prominent Orlando-area attorneys — including F. Wesley "Buck" Blankner, of Jaeger & Blankner; Michael LaFay, of NeJame Law; and Richard Hornsby, a frequent local-TV legal commentator — say that the $400 hourly rate O'Mara listed in his request for sanctions is reasonable.

Other paperwork filed Friday by the defense included:

• A request to add five more civilian witnesses to the defense's list. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson's deadline for adding witnesses has passed, but Zimmerman's lawyers say there is "no prejudice" to the state in adding the new witnesses.

The witnesses were not identified by name in the defense motion.

• A demand for any remaining data from Trayvon Martin's cell phone that hasn't been turned over yet.

• A demand for any "cleaned up, edited and/or enhanced version" of the 911 call which captured the screams which led up to the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Feb. 26 in Sanford.

George Zimmerman to appear in court for Trayvon Martin case
Last Updated: Friday, April 26, 2013

SANFORD --
Attorneys in the Case Against George Zimmerman are preparing for a key hearing in the case Tuesday and we have confirmed George Zimmerman will be in the courtroom.

Zimmerman’s defense attorneys are filing a whole stack of paperwork Friday because it is the last chance for attorneys on both sides of this case to bring up matters they want discussed on Tuesday.

Tuesday will be a big day. A whole series of issues will be discussed. But in motions filed just today, Zimmerman’s defense team wants to make sure they have everything the state does and it centers around 911 calls made the night Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman.

The defense said it wants any and all remaining enhanced 911 calls. They said Trayvon Martin’s family attorney Benjamin Crump claimed there’s a call that reveals it was Trayvon yelling for help. But originally, Trayvon’s father said it was not his son yelling for help. This could be a key piece of evidence in the case and the defense wants everything the state has before they go to trial.

500 jury summons for George Zimmerman trial to go out soon
Last Updated: Thursday, April 25, 2013, 8:10 PM

SEMINOLE COUNTY --
You might soon be getting a summons to be a part of the jury that will decide George Zimmerman’s fate if you live in Seminole County.

Jury notices will be going out soon to 500 people throughout the county.

But is it possible to have an unbiased jury decide the case?

News 13 legal analyst Mark NeJame said attorneys have a tough job ahead of them when picking a jury for the June trial.

An acquittal could spark protest, and it could have a long-term effect on Sanford and Seminole County, where the jurors live.

News 13 asked Nejame if that could factor into their decision.

“It can be a factor without question, and I think it is going to be incumbent on the parties, and the judge in this case, to have a sequestered jury the entire time. I think there will be people attempting to get to the jurors, through intimidation, by putting out information that might help bias or prejudice them.”

Zimmerman’s defense team could have asked for a change of venue, moving the case to a different county, but decided not to because they felt the case was too widely known for a change of venue to really have an effect.

George Zimmerman 'ready to be questioned' at hearing Tuesday
Last Updated: Monday, April 29, 2013, 10:08 AM

SANFORD --
George Zimmerman will be at the Seminole County Courthouse on Tuesday morning for the latest hearing in his second-degree murder case.

It's the last scheduled status hearing before Zimmerman stands trial for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford. The trial is scheduled to begin June 10 with jury selection.

Zimmerman's defense attorney, Mark O'Mara, said his client is ready to answer questions if prosecutors want to ask him anything.

The defense team will address the court about several motions filed on Friday. O'Mara says he wants everything the prosecution has on his client including all the 911 calls made the night Trayvon Martin was killed.

Other motions will be discussed and O'Mara says so will preparations for the trial. “And we need to plan, to the extent that we can what’s going to happen in the next 6-8 weeks because we have a jury to pick in what has been termed, and rightfully so, one of the most high-profile cases in the country right now. That is going to impact on our ability to pick a jury so we need some really good guidelines on that right now.”

O'Mara is such a grandstander... good grief.  He seems to want to bring attention to his client and make this the 'biggest trial of the century'.  Let it go.  Your client shot an unarmed kid who happened to be black.  That's what this is about.  Nothing more nothing less.

I don't think that he was grandstanding.  After reading your comment, I reread the article; and he said "one of the most high-profile cases in the country right now."  The issue of media and criminal cases came up last week.  O'Mara and Crump attended the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters banquet last Saturday, and they spoke briefly to the media before the banquet answering their questions. I'll post some articles shortly.

Lawyers Say Social Media Had Large Impact on Trayvon Martin Case
Mark O'Mara and Benjamin Crump both say social media brought case to the world.
By Natelege Whaley
Posted: 04/29/2013 10:00 AM EDT

Lawyers from both sides of the Trayvon Martin case can agree on one thing: social media has had a large impact in the prosecution of George Zimmerman.

Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, and Benjamin Crump, Trayvon's family attorney, both spoke to the media briefly about this phenomenon at the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters banquet Saturday, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

As onlookers tweeted and used Facebook to share their views on the killing of Trayvon, an unarmed 17-year-old boy, by the former neighborhood watch volunteer, information on the case was brought to a worldwide audience.

O'Mara, Crump agree: Social media playing key role in Trayvon case
April 27, 2013

George Zimmerman's second-degree-murder case exploded across the globe so rapidly because of social media, his attorney said Saturday before a news-media banquet in Orlando.
 ::snipping2::
Crump agreed that social media played an integral role in the criminal case against Zimmerman — by giving a voice to outraged onlookers who thought justice needed to be served.

"We didn't engage social media," he said. "It's almost as if social media engaged us."

He said the grass-roots-social-media movements that were bred from Trayvon's death have the potential to alter the way all criminal cases are handled in the future.

"All the world is watching because they want to see if everybody gets equal justice in America," he said.

Now O'Mara must continue to prepare for a trial that he thinks is coming too soon.

He will be back in court Tuesday to discuss what he calls "an extraordinary amount of discovery concerns," including Circuit Judge Debra Nelson's refusal to allow him to depose Crump and ask questions about his interview with witness No. 8, Trayvon's girlfriend.

Zimmerman's trial is set to begin before Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson in Seminole County on June 10.

George Zimmerman returns to court Tuesday
7:01 p.m. EDT, April 29, 2013

SANFORD – Murder suspect George Zimmerman returns to court Tuesday for the first time in three months for what could be one of the most contentious pretrial hearings in the case.

Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson is being asked to decide several issues. The most dramatic will likely be whether she should demand an answer from Zimmerman on this question: Are you giving up your right to a "stand your ground" hearing?

If he were to prevail in that proceeding, he would be absolved of criminal wrongdoing for killing Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old, in Sanford last year in what has become a civil rights cause célèbre'.

Defense attorneys also want the judge to order the release of details about a $1 million-plus settlement that Zimmerman's homeowners association paid Trayvon's parents to resolve a wrongful death claim.

And — in what may be the most contentious portion of the hearing — they're asking the judge to admonish and fine prosecutors several thousand dollars for what they describe as hiding information and causing delays.

Prosecutors say they have acted in good faith.
 ::snipping2::

The judge has set aside the entire day, but Tuesday's hearing is not expected to last that long.

She will be asked to decide a long list of issues, many related to specific pieces of evidence.

O'Mara on Monday predicted the judge would treat as a "non-issue" prosecutors' request that Zimmerman tell her whether he's waiving his right to a "stand your ground" hearing.

The defense announced that it would not hold one before the trial but has not ruled out the possibility of holding one at the same time as the trial or afterward.

If Zimmerman prevails at a "stand your ground hearing" he would be freed of criminal and civil liability for killing Trayvon. That's important because Trayvon's family has hired an attorney, Benjamin Crump, to sue Zimmerman.

Hi Graceland.  My interpretation of the above is that Crump is saying that he and the Martin family have not engaged social media.  He does not say that O'Mara and the Zimmerman family have not engaged social media.  We know that they have done so on many occasions.

Hearing in Zimmerman case to address a number of motions
Posted: Apr 29, 2013 10:41 PM CDT Updated: Apr 29, 2013 10:42 PM CDT

SANFORD, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
George Zimmerman will be in court on Tuesday morning for several motions.

As the state and defense teams prepare for Zimmerman's trial, his attorney Mark O'Mara said he continues to wait for evidence.  He is asking the judge to acknowledge that the lead prosecutor is violating discovery rules and wants sanctions against the state. He is asking for items like Trayvon Martin's cell phone records.

"It is malpractice for me not to look at social media," O'Mara said.  "It is malpractice of me not to take advantage of phone records that exist, or information on a phone that we have subpoena powers over."

But Martin's family attorney Ben Crump disagrees.

"George Zimmerman only saw him (Martin) walking down the street.  He didn't know anything about his social media.  He didn't know anything about his cell phone records.  He didn't know him from Adam.  All he knew... he had on a hoodie."

Some observers say the fight over evidence has recently turned nasty, after the defense requested $4,500, because the unnamed "Witness No. 8" was 5 hours late to a deposition. While O'Mara wanted the videographer and his workers to be paid for that time, the lead prosecutor accused him of grandstanding. 

"Pleading like that tells me we're going to stand in the box throwing dirt at each other, and it just demeans my profession and it demeans the process," said O'Mara.

O'Mara said he did not plan to have a self-defense immunity/Stand Your Ground hearing, but he doesn't think it's right that the state wants his client to give up that right during the hearing.

"We have a trial on June 10, and we'll figure out how to present, what to present, then."

Jury selection and settlement issues will also be taken up.

Yes, of course Cookie, I just have not seen it.  The Martin's have not created blogs filled with ommissions and tweeted jokes in poor taste about a deceased young man and writing letters to the public but the Zimmerman's have, the DA does not go to the media at every turn but O'Mara sure does, The Martins have not spoken or written publicly to the media in a long time.  They did very early on but that was when they were trying to get an investigation rolling and let the public know how much they loved their son and wanted justice for him.  I, too would go public if I had a cause... if my child were killed by a man who profiled him based on the color of his skin and no investigation took place.  There have been some fairly recent (within many months) local rallies in support of Trayvon but the Martin's did not initiate them.  Their side has been quiet as the trial approaches but Zimmerman's attorney and the Zimmerman family seem to be adding fuel to the flame of making this trial vitriolic and hate filled and trying to make George a victim.

IMO and from what I have read the Martin's are remaining quiet and approaching the trial with class.  I continue to offer my prayer and support for their family.

George Zimmerman won't have pre-trial 'stand your ground' hearing
Trayvon Martin's shooter will go to trial.
12:42 p.m. EDT, April 30, 2013

SANFORD – Murder defendant George Zimmerman will not have a "stand your ground" hearing before his trial, after he waived that right in court today.

However, the issue could still resurface at trial, his defense lawyer said during a roughly three-hour hearing, which concluded about noon.

During the hearing, Zimmerman was questioned under oath by Circuit Judge Debra Nelson. The state had asked the judge to demand an answer from Zimmerman about whether he was waiving his right to a "stand your ground" hearing.

That's a proceeding that could absolve him of wrongdoing for killing Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old, in Sanford, in what has become a civil rights cause célèbre.

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, argued Zimmerman shouldn't be asked to waive any rights. The defense "might," he said, argue for immunity at trial, after all the evidence is presented.

Over O'Mara's protestations, Nelson questioned Zimmerman, asking if he had made the decision to waive his right to a pre-trial immunity hearing.

"After consultation with my counsel, yes, your honor," Zimmerman replied.

Earlier in the hearing, the judge addressed discovery issues: Nelson ordered the state to turn over any cell phone data for Trayvon or Zimmerman that they haven't given already.

She ordered the state and defense to turn over to the other side any "cleaned up" or enhanced audio of the 911 call which captured screams leading up to the shooting.

Nelson also granted the defense's request to add five more witnesses to their list, even though the deadline she set for new witnesses had passed.

She also ruled that the $1 million-plus settlement Zimmerman's homeowners association paid Trayvon's parents to settle a wrongful death claim will be turned over to the parties.

However, the judge said the settlement will be redacted in the public court file, which likely means the precise dollar amount won't be revealed.

The last portion of the hearing centered on the defense's requests that Nelson to admonish and fine prosecutors for, according to the defense, hiding information and causing delays.

For example, the defense says the state delayed in revealing that Witness 8, who was on the phone with Trayvon in the moments before his shooting, lied about going to the hospital after learning of his death.

"We can't get ready for trial," O'Mara said. "We will be unprepared for trial because of everything they've done to us."

However, the judge was skeptical of his argument. She said she found no violation, but reserved ruling on a motion which sought costs for depositions the defense says the state delayed.

At the start of the hearing and again later, Nelson addressed the recent rhetoric between attorneys in the case, telling them that she wouldn't tolerate further acrimony.

Nelson said of a recent state filing, which O'Mara argues was unprofessional: "I do find things that this court wishes were not in a pleading... it will not be tolerated in the future."

George Zimmerman's Decision Leads to Summer Trial
April 30, 2013

 ::snipping2::
As the hearing began, the judge warned both side remain professional, - after the two sides used court motions to batter each other the past few months. Less than two hours later both sides hurled accusations against each other during a hearing in which possible sanctions against the prosecutors for discovery violations were debated.

The defense asserted that Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda had repeatedly withheld evidence about witness 8, believed to have been Trayvon Martin's girlfriend and the last person to speak with Him.

The defense wanted the court to assess sanctions against the prosecution for not immediately notifying them that Witness 8 allegedly lied about her whereabouts during Martin's funeral.

The defense took the unusual tactic of asking one of its own attorneys, Don West, to take the stand to itemize the ways in which the prosecution delayed discovery, clouded certain evidence and in general cost the defense team time and money, which the defense team has said is running short.

"It was completely misleading about the atmosphere during this first interview. It speaks volumes about why she testified the way she did," said West of witness 8.

During the cross examination a clearly infuriated de la Rionda stalked the court, peppering West with questions.

De la Rionda claimed the defense was following conservative social media outlets and looking to them for strategy. He asked West if Witness 8 testimony about the night of Martin's death appeared consistent to which West responded yes.

What happened with the W8 depo was that the attorneys were there to depose her and MOM wanted it videoed.  BDLR didn't want that and the time wasted was because of BDLR's opposition and it took 5 hours to get in touch with the judge.

In the end, the defense got to depose her a 2nd day.
