I don't see why he should be allowed to.  Everything being addressed is between the State and Zimmerman.  His  "proposed respondent" is horse hockey in my books.  He wanted to meddle in a criminal case.  He brought forth the witness that was to "blow the lid off and connect all the dots."  She has since been semi-discredited, so now he needed her for a civil case?

Seriously?

Since Crump's motion to respond was unopposed, I think the DCA will probably allow it, though I'd like to see them deny it. I think they should, too. It should be up to the state, not Crump, to argue that the petition should be dismissed because post-judgement relief is available, and Crump's work-product arguments are already part of the trial court record.

I'm surprised the DCA hasn't yet issued an order, one way or the other, on Crump's proposed response. They've had almost a week, and currently the reply deadline is Monday.

They might be "squeezing" petitioner to make a response by the original deadline, at the same time allowing a separate and 10 day later response (to Crump) should they grant Crump's motion to be heard.  The DCA hasn't ruled on O'Mara's motion for an extension, so he best be acting as though none is granted.

I have no idea how you keep up with all this.  It's confusing sometimes and well above my pay grade!

I glanced through and didn't see if you all had this link here so here it is:

Don't see O'Mara's doc asking for more time though. Maybe they'll post it on there next week sometime.

Thanks, DiwataMan. I don't recall seeing that website before. I wish the document websites would try harder to keep current.

The motion for an extension is listed on the regular docket.

I wonder if the defense motion for more time might also include as justification the fact that all evidentiary motions in the trial court are supposed to be filed by the end of this coming week. I'm not sure why the defense couldn't have filed the motion earlier in the week; though perhaps it will be more apparent once we can read it.

I'm aware of that. I'm talking about the actual document.

The defense moved for an extension of time:

05/03/2013    Motion for Extension of Time         Petitioner

Most likely, I assume, on the grounds that not only do they have to reply to both the state's and Crump's response, but the ten days allowed started with the state's response, yet Crump responded five days later.

So far, the court hasn't ruled that Crump can respond. I think it's likely he'll be allowed to, but I did a brief search, and couldn't find a comparable situation in a criminal case.

I hate to sound really dense, but is the extension requested in this motion asking to push the trial date back from 6/10/13?

Or is this only asking the DCA for an extension in the proceedings on the Writ of Certiorari only?

I haven't been able to read the actual motion yet, and I'm not sure I'm following what's being said about it.

Almost certainly, the defense is just asking for more time to file its reply.

This.  The request for an extension of time was filed in the DCA, so it's about the timing of events before the DCA.  If O'Mara wants a continuance (lawyer/judge-speak for "delay") in the trial, he'll ask Nelson.  If Bernardo wants a continuance, he'll ask Nelson.

Who does Crump ask?

(or tell)

Thanks for the responses. I felt relatively certain it was filed for an extension in the proceedings on the Writ of Certiorari, but just wanted to be sure.
