Zimmerman Defense Rests… Closing Arguments Begin
Closing arguments begin today in the Zimmerman trial. Jury deliberations will begin on Friday.
According to Legal Insurrection,
The defense team continued on what is expected to be the last day of their presentation of their case. The day began and ended with a bang. This morning Judge Nelson denied the defense’s request to introduce their animated movie as evidence, although they will be permitted to use it for demonstrative purposes during closing. Professor Jacobson covered this breaking news this morning here:
Breaking – Jury will not get to see Trayvon fighting texts
Then at the end of Court today the defense rested their case, and it was agreed that the State would present its closing argument tomorrow at 1PM, the defense would present their closing argument on Friday morning, followed by a State rebuttal. After that the jury should be instructed, and deliberations begun.
