The judge won’t throw the case out, if she was a judge that cared about justice, true justice, she would do it..but she is too heavily invested in getting Zimmerman convicted, and she doesnt want the left to destroy her if she throws the case out

They are arguing the motion to dismiss now.

There is no possibility whatsoever that this judge will grant a dismissal. She should, but she won’t.

What did he do - move for a directed verdict after the close of the State’s case? That happens in most criminal trials. But, granted, here it is certainly appropriate.

This is S.O.P. in a case so flimsy as this appears to be. The judge of course will deny the motion and proceed.

If the Judge, knowing the likelihood of acquittal based on the non existent case throws it out can Zimmerman be re-tried on a lesser charge

Defense cited a bunch of cases and case law why to throw out, now the prosecution is citing cases and case law why not to.

Judge will not throw out the case.

Prosecution will be made asses of forthwith.

I did it in every criminal case I ever tried. You have to argue that the state failed to put on evidence that would prove up any charge, beyond a reasonable doubt. Only got a directed verdict once.

Excellent. I figured once the prosecution was done...the case was over. They presented nothing but innuendo, lies, and false testimony.

“Only got a directed verdict once.”

How does that case compare to the prosecution’s case in this one?

Not really breaking. It was highly anticipated, probably correct since the state has failed to make a prima facie case. But if you've followed the judge's behavior, she's clearly on the side of the prosecutor -- so much so I think there are reversible errors already -- and she isn't going to do it however correct it might be.

Well...right this minute a memeber of the prosecution is making an ass of himself. I pray this guy has to defend himself someday. He is evil.

I think it’s pretty much malpractice if you don’t ask at the end of the prosecution’s evidence in every trial. This one deserves it to be granted.

Motion for dismissal is normal procedure for a contested case, but it is uncommon to be granted. Judges usually wont take it out of jury/deliberation, even when there is a strong case for not wasting anymore time and taxpayer money on bunko cases.

It seemed like the prosecution had given up and just wanted to get on with finding Z innocent and let the riots begin. The prosecution certainly didn't seem like they had a case.

What?! It’s too early in the season to end this show (trial). More time is needed to prep for coverage of the riots. Summer TV schedules have already been locked in. The network news talent is on vacation. Which programs will be preempted to make room for the riot coverage? Oh well, at least the riots might boost ratings, during the slow summer season.

(Was I being sarcastic or sardonic? I can never tell.)

Standard procedure for any competant defence attorney. Especially when the prosecution has not presented an effective case.

I know of a civil case where at the close of plaintiff’s evidence, the defense attorney was preparing to move for nonsuit.

The jury was still in the box when he stood up and said “Your honor, defendant X would like to make a motion at this time.”

The lady judge, without hearing any law or argument, or even missing a beat, simply said, “That motion is denied.”

It's my understanding that this is SOP.Given that this judge has proven herself,beyond a whisper of a doubt,to be working for the prosecution she's far more likely to declare GZ to be *guilty* from the bench than *not* guilty.

Unfortunately the Judge is probably thinking “La La La La” I doubt she cares..she knows what will happen to her if she does the right thing and drops this case..even Manslaughter Zimmerman could serve 30 years in jail because the “victim” was under the age of 18
