Motion to Compel Production of Evidence from a Third Party
Footnote 14 is particularly interesting for what it reveals of the state’s stonewalling in the case. There is every reason to fear that Zimmermann will not get a fair trial. They want to send a message to white Americans that they do not have a right to self defense if a member of a favored group tries to kill them. Zimmermann is not white by the usual standards (he is part white, part South American Indian, and part African in ancestry) but he has been made an honorary white for the purposes of this case.
