Tuesday’s court proceedings in the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman wrapped with a tense moment after defense attorneys tried to object to the long hours but the judge, in response, simply walked away.
Defense attorneys were left standing in mid-sentence, video of the exchange showed.
Mr. Zimmerman’s lawyers were attempting to argue that they couldn’t keep up with the demands of the trial, in part, they said, because of prosecutors’ withholding of key evidence, ABC reported. But the judge refused to hear the complaints.
“I’m not getting into this,” said Judge Debra Nelson, as ABC reported. “Court is in recess.”
