    He says he filed 15 pre-trial motions and won 2 or 3. It doesn't contradict cbs article because he could have then gone to trial and won the rest at trial.
    So there is not contradiction as far as I can tell.

    That's it, exactly.

    Imo, this is incorrect. That's what the preliminary hearing is for. And that's why the original prosecutor may have been reluctant to arrest him in the first place. jmoo

    Hi Reader - how many cases that Richard Hornsby tried under SYG were murder cases if you happen to know the answer to that?

    Exactly, I think that's what was being referred to, just the SYG hearings that Mr. Hornsby has filed.

    I presume he filed 15 motions for hearings before trials. Two or three were granted and the case never went to trial. The rest presumably went to trial, and according to cbs he didn't lose a single case out of 15. So presumably some cases were won before trial (in a SYG hearing) and the rest at trial.
    Just my opinion

    And this is why everything will rest upon the substantiation and verification of GZ's injuries and the condition of Trayvon's body (per/the ME)! Everything!
    Exactly! That's why I think George is going to pass on having the SYG hearing, he has no medical records to present and the autopsy will show he shot Trayvon from a distance thus no struggle or SYG defense. AND his SYG testimony would be used against him at trial. all jmo.

    And how do you know any of that? Any links to autopsy showing TM was shot from a distance? Or that Zimmerman has no medical record to prove any sort of injury?

    No, I just have that one interview so far and he does not say what kind of cases they were.

    According to cbs none were murders. But that would only make SYG harder to prove since the other side is alive and presumably able to tell their side of the story.
    Just my opinion

    Curious? do you know something we don't know? I haven't even heard if the bond hearing is for sure next week. Then there are hearings, pretrial motions, the SYG thingy, (which GZ may prevail) this will not be resolved until ??? years. I am guessing. But it isn't a sure thing that he will even come before a jury. A plea deal may be in the works. I dunno.

    And yet you are ready to predict unpeaceful civil disobedience.

    (LOL I wrote out that serious post and couldn't figure out a word to use for this = unpeaceful, oh heck I never burned my bra, wasn't old enough to wear one.)

    I said JMO to all of that, it's just what I 'think'.

    This may be off topic, I do apologize. I just now am able to post as I forgot my password.......Anyway, as far as the supposed injuries to GZ (broken nose and blood on back of his head)..I think it is real possible that the broken nose could be from the gun kick and then when he realized he was bleeding from the nose he put his hand up to his nose/face and then placed his hand on the back of his head, thus leaving blood on the back of his head. JMO, KWIM?

    Thanks. It's crossing my mind that the decision not to have a GJ may have something to do with the minor's testimony. I know it was put out there that AC never uses the GJ for cases like this, so I had just accepted that. But now I'm wondering whether the decision to charge murder 2 instead of manslaughter and not use the GJ for it may have been based on some issue with the gf. Like maybe her parents aren't wanting to put her through that. This way the charges are exclusively in AC's hands (murder 2 v. manslaughter), the girl doesn't have to testify at the GJ and AC still has all of her cards in hand to get a manslaughter plea and avoid the girl ever having to testify at all. Just a thought that crossed my mind....jmo, etc. I think it is key if AC had any input in issuing the supoena in the first place.
