http://gzlegalcase.com ^ | 13 AUGUST 2012. | n/a

Posted on 08/13/2012 4:23:39 PM PDT by kanawa

On July 13, the defense team filed a Verified Motion to Disqualify Trial Judge. Judge Lester responded on August 1 by issuing an Order Dismissing Defendant's Verified Motion to Disqualify Trial Judge on the basis that it was legally insufficient. Today the defense team will file a Petition for Writ of Prohibition with the 5th District Court of Appeal.

It means that O'Mara is appealing the lower court's rejection of the motion to disqualify the trial judge for bias.

O'Mara believes the trial judge should be disqualified. The trial judge disagreed. O'Mara is appealing that decision.

The formal title, "Petition for Writ of Prohibition," means he is petitioning the appeal court to issue an order that prohibits the trial judge from continuing to hear this case.

This Zimmerman should just lie down on the tracks and take his railroading like a man. Besides, the way these things work, the next judge will be Captain Kangaroo, and sit on the bench making slip nooses as he fights nodding off.

Now that St. Rodney King is no longer on the planet, The Cult of St. Trayvon demands human sacrifices. I am planning on attending the trial in my Trayvon (copyright) Hoodie and having gold grillwork done to fit in. I am worried about the Skittles getting stuck behind the gold teeth, though. Any tips from the bros?

A writ of prohibition is a writ directing a subordinate to stop doing something the law prohibits. In practice, the Court directs the Clerk to issue the Writ, and directs the Sheriff to serve it on the subordinate, and the Clerk prepares the Writ and gives it to the Sheriff, who serves it. This writ is normally issued by a superior court to the lower court asking it not to proceed with a case which does not fall under its jurisdiction.

These Writs are issued as “alternative” or “peremptory.” An alternative Writ directs the recipient to immediately act, or desist, and “Show Cause” why the directive should not be made permanent. A peremptory Writ directs the recipient to immediately act, or desist, and “return” the Writ, with certification of its compliance, within a certain time.

Yeh -- gargle and wash it all down with Arizona Watermelon Juice. Then beat the dickens out of the first guy that looks at you crosswise.

Obviously the defense team sees they have little more to lose otherwise it will be a hard row to hoe the whole trial.

What’s the chances this writ will get this judge off the case?

Although my Twitter Handle be No_Limit_Slugga, I don't be takin' that advice, bro. I hear some them honkies be strapped.

If I were Zimmerman's lawyer O'Mara, my first line of courtroom defense would be that GZ was packing a Kel-Tec. As is well known in gun circles, you cannot actually shoot someone on purpose with a Kel-Tec. They only fire accidentally. Occasionally, they are known to "cook off," but rarely on cool rainy nights.

Yes. Get one of Obama's sons to knock it loose by beating your head on the pavement. They seem to be qualified. (No, I am not wishing you personal harm)

LOL and seriously,

I was feeling very good after hearing that presser lawyer O'Mara gave. He just seems like the kind of guy who can get it done. I am thinking that this "Self-defense Immunity Hearing," which is GZ's by statutory right is what will keep both sides happy.

The prosecution having thrown a bone to Obama and Holder's People, can go with the obvious facts of the case in a non-trial (read quiet) hearing. And, by the time it happens 7-8 months down the road, this ridiculous case should have cooled off, particularly with a new AG on the job.

I am looking for one black leader to step up and condemn this idiotic "Gangsta Culture," which wrecks lives, black, white, brown, and yellow. Herman? Col. West? Magic? I see what this judge was trying to do:

Chances are pretty good. Even the judge himself kinda alluded to getting overruled by a higher court when he refused to recuse himself

This judge, Angela Corey, Gov Rick Scott, AG Pam Bondi, and all the Black Racist “leaders” are all responsible for this lynching. I will do everything possible to make sure all the elected people involved are voted out (I can vote out Lester, Scott, Bondi). This is an absolute travesty that Zimmerman is being tried when the Black Ghetto thug Trayvon Martin ATTACKED Zim.

The judge should be jailed for his bias.

LOL and seriously,

Sorry -- but you don't get to switch gears that quickly.

You cannot go from LOL to seriously in the same post or even consecutive posts.

There must be atleast a three post separation, otherwise you may be consigned to the BiPolar Forum for the rest of the evening or until you get your posts right.

If I wasn’t used to these media morons, I’d be astonished at the number of time O’Mara explained it’s a self defense issue, not a stand your ground issue without them giving even the slightest hint of having grasped what he was saying.

Uncle Chip I must bow to your psychological and grammatical acumen.

There is a chemical explanation: Malbec with dinner. Strong coffee afterwards. Now I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or wander in the woods howling at the moon. I thought Ingtar beating my head on the pavement would calm me down ... but no.

Wait. I know. I'll put on my hoodie and case a few homes on my way to the 7-11 for Skittles and Watermelon Juice. And I just discovered that my cell phone has a flashlight! (Soon I will figure out how to call people on it, too!)

You're obviously still delusional.

Take two Skittles, an ounce of watermelon juice, go howl at the moon for an hour, then call me in the morning -- on your flashlight not your phone.

Not much on following FLA state politics, we have enough here in Texas to keep occupied. Thank the Lord its not as screwy as FLA.

This case does seem to be kangaroo court-ish. A legal conceal carry, attacked by this punk clearly what Stand Your Ground is all about and the state keeps trying to pull this.

Lester got his panties in a twist over Zimmerman “lying” in court (an assumption of guilt w/o a trial) about the defense fund and then jumped the shark came out of the closet to stand with the Klan with the Tan in his decision to claim Zimmerman is likely guilty of murder in the bail revoking document.

Lester is a liberal emo who has been swept up in the spirit of political correctness, department of race baiting whitey, division of hatin’ guns. He finds himself refereeing a political trial with second amendment advocates on one side and his liberal political tribe on the other side. He's not handled the pressure well.

Excellent summary of the case as a whole, and an excellent piece of legal writing.

Great news! I had argued in previous FR Zimmerman threads that they had to appeal, I just couldn`t understand them not doing it. This guy can no way stay on the case
