Florida appeals court on Wednesday granted George Zimmerman's request for a new judge.

Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, had said the judge presiding over his case has made disparaging remarks about him.

@gungasnake,
Isn't it wonderful the way reality sets in on these things sooner or later?

Anybody wanna bet that a real judge doesn't simply dismiss the charges against Zimmerman?

Someone (probably either you or Hawkeye or BillRM) recently posted that Zimmerman's lawyers have now made a Stand Your Ground claim and asked the judge to dismiss the case.


EDIT: Was posted by Hawkeye:

@oralloy,
Last I heard they were going to move to have the charges dismissed on a pure self-defense basis. There was non question of standing his ground, Zimmerman was pinned to the ground and was in the process of being beaten to death at the time.
