O'Mara described the gist of the self defense argument as it pertains to Martin's conduct that night. Evidence of impairment, evidence of knowing how to fight, evidence of character from school/police incident reports. He was sort of lamenting the inability to put on a defense. Nelson said that what stands in his way isn't her rulings, what stands in his way is the rules of evidence.
I'm sure I made a number of remarks or observations that are similarly false, when read literally. Such is the case when composing on the fly. Corrections always welcome. Criticism without a substantive correction, not so much.
