Judge Rejects Zimmerman Lawyers’ Request for Trial Delay

George Zimmerman

A judge in the case of a former neighborhood watch leader accused of shooting Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has denied a defense request to delay the trial.

George Zimmerman’s attorneys presented a motion Tuesday asking Judge Debra Nelson to push the trial from mid-June back to November. They say the prosecutor has been slow in turning over needed evidence. The state attorney denied the accusation.

Judge Nelson noted Zimmerman’s lead attorney had been in the case nearly a year and says the problems he’s having getting evidence are not insurmountable.
