Here is a list of links to live broadcast of today's hearing.  Should this thread be used for live blogging or should a new one be started?

That's what Twitter is for.

It could go either wasy, I guess. Maybe our hostess with the most-est could chime in with the preferred protocol going forward. Since most hearings have arguments on multiple motions, I think a seperate thread is best with comments/observations that clarify issues in the motion thread going there. For instance, today they will hear the gag order (state, defense and media argument), Zimmerman's emergency motion and the judge should rule on Zimmerman's medical records. To me, that lends itself to a seperate thread.

i think your hunch on excited utterance is sound.

I don't think the excited state probably matters to admissibility, because Martin's statements seem to fall under the "spontaneous statement" exception for statements made while the events are occurring, rather that the "excited utterance" exception for statements made shortly after an unusual event occurs, while the speaker is still in an excited state.

Looks like BDLR goes out to get his news paper every morning. Wonder if his PJ's are better than Nifongs?

Round one on discovery seems to be a leadoff double for the defense. How much of the FBI's field notes will actually be produced? They will undoubtedly claim that the notes are part of an ongoing investigation of the Sanford PD.

I wonder if the DOJ/ FBI investigation includes the prosecutors office.

O no he did not just say that the media was best to decide imapartiality in this case.

O'Mara can crowd-source defense investigation if he wants. That's insane to suggest otherwise.

Now he is arguing that a commenter on O'Mara's  Zimmerman web site reached out any to individuals who if they found themselves in GZ 's shoes would act as GZ did. BDLR suggests that this would bias the jury pool.

Perhaps he  is considering the jury pool for GZ's civil action against the state.

That was frickin eerie seeing BDLR read my post in court on a nationally broadcast hearing.

I am waiting for the Corey/Crump lovefest to be brought up.  We will see how loud Bernie can scream OBJECTION!

O'Mara left out 'vigilante wannabe cop'.

Well, it looks like I am wrong.  Bernie is keeping quiet during O'Mara's detailing of the Crump/Corey partnership.  I can't imagine his rebuttal.

MOM just accused either the state or SPD of being corrupt. Wow.

That fits in with the Gentile case.  O'Mara quoted the same passage that MJW noticed, about defendant counsel's right, faced with an unjust prosecution.

And, FWIW, O'Mara couched or conditioned his remark on "evidence received so far," in particular, the SPD discovery.  That leaves the state in a position where it can justify its charge with evidence.
