Florida judge ruling against the defense team on two pieces of evidence that could be key in -- George Zimmerman murder trial last night.
Judge Nelson hearing arguments on that very evidence not ruling but instead literally walking out.
On the court -- after a thirteen hour day take a look.
I don't want to take that up at 9 o'clock and have the jury.
On sit out there and wait like they did today we will be -- -- substances into the morning.
And -- nine.
It's 10 o'clock at night we started this morning at full days every game.
That was done -- -- talking as the judge walked out on the Zimmerman attorneys saying they may wrap up their case by the end of today let's talk about it -- least we'll former prosecutor Fox News legal analyst Remi Spencer joins us.
A defense attorney now -- Don west giving his best when he Weiner imitation.
Crying that he actually has to work weekends during trial -- -- night I sometimes wonder is this the first trial this guy has actually ever try.
I it was amazing to watch that Greg I mean here we are talking about a second degree murder trial but everyone in the country is looking at -- he's whining about having to work weekends.
And frankly -- you thought with the -- walking up he kind of got a and rightly so all she cares about and again.
Is the jury that's been sequestered this jury is knocking their family nor friends not -- -- any of that she wants to move this along she doesn't want whining from any lawyers.
Yes same guy who cracking knock knock joke right front of the jury which was probably the biggest bone headed -- since Chris Darden asked -- -- trial on the bloody glove.
That -- -- -- tell us about that too.
Critical decisions the judge made ruling essentially against the defense on the computer animation as well as the text messages on.
-- on Martin's -- well.
I think there were the key word there is essentially so we know that there are two ways that evidence can come into.
-- into a courtroom before at cherry either it can come in as demonstrative.
It's something -- used as an exhibit but it's not actually evidence or seeking comment as evidence.
The interesting thing is the judge said while the video -- not be evidence.
In this case it can nonetheless be shown to -- which means.
The defense gets to play at which isn't really all that they need this -- a very powerful piece of evidence he will be very persuasive.
Now -- leads the defense says it's gonna wrap up its case sometime today which suggests.
Pretty clearly they're not gonna play.
They're -- client George Zimmerman on the witness stand but you know what.
On he doesn't have to thanks to the prosecution.
By the way who inexplicably.
On their own all of these videotapes statements by the defense.
Videotape audiotape and our own Sean Hannity interview and but under no cross examination so why would the defense want to put government on the stand now to face cross examination when they've gotten everything his his version of what happened.
Out there are several times a part of -- -- without any cross examination it would make no sense to put him on the stand.
Yeah I mean it was hearsay evidence didn't have to come -- right defense certainly not new object to -- so.
-- in the -- prosecutors can still prevail with a conviction if they prove two things first of all.
There was ill will on the part of the defendant and we did hear that his voice mail messenger -- telephone call.
And then the second thing is that he on reasonably.
Use deadly force that.
That right that is exactly right -- this state has to approve.
That he intentionally killed train on Martin or they have to.
Prove I should say -- his self defense claim.
I think that the state is a very difficult burden in any case especially in this one where they've made so many mistakes in my opinion mistakes.
About letting the defendant sort -- testify and go unchallenged.
I think that it that this is a case that the defense has a very good chance of succeeding at the end.
There is also the manslaughter of a lesser included which is really -- -- and so there is that still in the game and cannot -- it's the keyword is unreasonable to jurors reps say that it was unreasonable to using gun under the circumstances in that case she could get a conviction.
Remi Spencer release will thank you -- at a news.
