    If he did release it he can say he did not "leak" it to help Zimmerman.

    He can say anything he wants because ABC will never disclose who gave it to them.

    I don't know Dr.Fessel. _

    Didn't ABC eventually get caught with their pants down over the $200,000 payment for the exclusive rights to the Caylee photos and videos?

That report does not mean it was actually broken but he should treat it as if it is and follow up with a specialist, which he did not do. Obviously GZ did not feel it was broken or damaged enough to follow up on his injury. It sounds, too, as if the doctor was going by whatever input GZ provided him. If GZ told the doctor he was punched in the face 3 or 4 times I would think the doctor would conclude his nose was probably broken.

    I'd like to see the report from the medics myself. jmo
    My son broke his nose on two occasions. Neither time was he sent to a specialist for further care. Unless it is a 'twisted' type break, or one that is distorted in some way, there is no further treatment necessary. It just needs to heal. ' No More Hockey' for awhile were our only instructions.

They deliver babies, specialize in various types of surgery (orthapedic, etc.), and dx cancer, among other things.

    If this was a DO he or his spouse considered to be their primary care physician - or even a Dr. one of them had seen previously for something small, I can certainly see why he'd go see someone familiar after an event such as this.

    The article I referenced above states that he went in to be cleared to return to work. To me, that indicates two things. 1) He had no clue the firestorm was coming. He was just wanting to get back to his job - to his normal life; and 2) his injuries looked bad enough that he needed official proof that they would not preclude him from working.

What person after just undergoing such a traumatic incident and especially one which you took someone's life is ready to work?It had not even been 24 hours. I just think anyone would have took a sick day at least...It really shows that he had no sympathy whatsoever for the person (Trayvon) he had just killed. jmo

    Why are bits and pieces of information being released and not the whole medical document/s?

    Tacking on 'imo' doesn't change the fact that what you wrote is incorrect as written. Being punched is not in itself justification for using lethal force under SYG. The person who uses lethal force needs to have a *reasonable* belief that his/her life is threatened or that they are going to suffer grievous harm. Considering that GZ used to be a bouncer, being punched by a slim youth should not give him a reasonable fear for his life. I can't believe how often I've had to read this misinformation, often from the same posters over and over again.
    All JMO.

    How do we know he went back to work immediately. Maybe he needed to medical report in order for him to take a few days off, and THEN go back to work?

    I do not believe we know enough to make that characterization.

    People react differently to tragic events. Some immediately collapse, emotionally. Some function in shock, going about their daily business, and eventually break down.

    He was not a man of significant means, and he may have been paid by the hour. He may also have had a lot of work backed up and been under pressure to get through a certain amount of work in a short amount of time, at the risk of losing his job if he fell behind.

    We really just can't know.

    I also don't know that GZ had any clue at that point *who* he had killed. I don't believe the parents even knew he was dead yet. He may very well have been under the assumption that he had stopped a burglary that was about to happen and had killed somebody who had was responsible for his neighborhood living on eggshells and getting big dogs and concealed carry permits... in which case he might not have felt 'sympathy' for the person he had killed. Regret that he had not been able to stop him without loss of life, maybe... but not necessarily sympathy for someone he had originally suspected of being up to mischief who hid, came back around, walked up and asked him a question, and then began beating him up.

    I wasn't there, obviously, so I do not know that that's what TM did. The trial will determine that. I just mean that that is GZ's contention regarding what TM did, and if it is accurate, the next day GZ may have been walking around believing he was responsible for the death of a *criminal*... as opposed to, as he is often called, "... an unarmed boy who had just bought some candy."

    But the doctor recommended he see one. You go to a doctor and then ignore his advice?? GZ seems to do that a lot with authority figures. And it does seem as if he got what he wanted to prove he was hurt and did not need a specialist to tell him it wasn't broken. I would think if it really bothered him he would have gone. jmo

    As far as I can tell, there is no special treatment for a broken nose. It just has to heal. Given that, Zimmerman might have felt there is no point of going to a specialist.

    Do you mean threatening them with words or a weapon? If its words I don't believe someone can assault the person saying those words. JMO.

    Didn't that happen in court though? Baez et al were forced to disclose the info at FCA's indigency hearing IIRC.

    . But Trayvon was just "an unarmed boy who had just bought candy"... He committed no crime, had no burglary tools on him. Meanwhile, there are some who suppose George stood over Trayvon after he shot him and frisked his pockets! Imagine what surprise George must have felt! He had plenty of time prior to his bond hearing to express his remorse to Trayvon's parents...

    ITA! How better to make his client look good than to finesse the info that is "leaked"? And then feel justified in splitting hairs in his response, so that he can dissemble and come out smelling like a rose. I cannot believe this was leaked and was leaked so quickly! And was not leaked until such time as the defence got the discovery.

    I said on another thread that I think the likely source of the leak is MOM.

    That said,

    Even when these docs are released per the Sunshine Laws, there will not be any court stamps on them. Discovery is exchanged between the parties and the only thing filed with the Court will be a Notice of Discovery. A simple, one page notice advising the Court that the parties have exchanged specific discovery docs.

    I do know that in Florida the Clerks office gets copies of the discovery exchanged to release to anyone willing to pay for the copies. Also, they have a room where you can review the docs if you don't want to pay for the copies.

    The only time you will ever see any of these documents officially filed with the Court will be right before entering them into evidence at a hearing or trial. Even then, they will be entered with an evidence sticker identifying them by a # for the official court transcript.
    Never interrupt your opponent when they are making a mistake.

    You make a really good point! Who of us actually believes that in a dust up someone is out to kill us??? And GZ had the gun! And Trayvon was a young kid with no gun, only fists at best. Usually and reasonably fists do not kill.

    It is unreasonable, IMO, to think that Trayvon was going to kill GZ. Heck, he wasn't even a bouncer, bodyguard, secret agent, militia type, 200 lbs, versed in the art of boxing or martial arts, etc etc. Seriously, how can you fear for your life in a fist fight? From this callow kid? It makes no sense.

    Every Dr. has a reason for prescribing every medicine.
    But, that does not mean we always take them.

    Like I said, I have several prescriptions that I don't take.
    Just one example:
    Tramadol (for fibromyalgia pain) makes me sick. I have a full prescription minus 1 pill.

    There are many reasons people don't take a medicine.

    Again, just because something is prescribed does not mean its taken.

    The fact is we don't know if he was taking it.
    That's why I responded to a post that stated GZ was taking them.

    I ignore dr's advice all the time.

    If it's going to cost additional $ and I do not believe that what they are suggesting is necessary - or at the very least, that I can hold off doing something they suggested to determine if I *really* need to go to the trouble - I don't jump just because a dr. suggested that I do.

    More often than not, the situation resolves itself without me ever going in again.

    Dr's have to suggest things to cover themselves from sue-happy people who might later complain that they didn't do enough. Doesn't mean that their referrals are always warranted.
