Every time I think Zimmerman is looking alert, those eyelids start getting heavy again.

It seems like every sidebar is longer than the last one.

I think by the time we see them all, we'll find the durations are related to some issue, and randomly distributed among the prospects.  I'm not sure what the ultimate conclusions of the sidebars are - if counsel is asserting challenges and they are being argued; or if the court is seeking agreement one way or the other to reject the prospect, or allow the prospect to the next stage of the elimination tournament.  I would assume that the longer sidebars occur when there is disagreement.

Thanks, cboldt, for jumping back in with the analysis and reportage. And thank you for not mentioning GZ's sleep status.

Heh.  I mostly work from audio.  I don't flip over to the tab with the streaming video very often, so I miss all the juicy stuff that happens in the video part of what we're being fed.  I see some of it.  Just saw the Team Martin lineup - Sybrina, Tracy, NatJack, Crump, Corey.  Corey had her head down.  No smiles from any of them.

Maybe the sidebars are being used to choose the next prospects, so it's necessary to get agreement; and this long one is setting up for tomorrow, so they need agreement on 10 or 15.

Thank you.

This sidebar needs a name, if not a zip code.

Nelson is burning the midnight oil.  Group of jurors brought in to be addressed by the court.  She instructs the jurors for overnight.  Do not read or listen to any reports about the case.  May not discuss the case amongst themselves or anybody else.  May not drive by any of the places concerning this case, do no independent research, nothing about people, places, things.  Do not create or read any e-mails, twitters, tweet.  Ward off anybody who tries to get you to talk about this, and if somebody insists, report to one of the court deputies.  Attorneys may not have any contact with you, so if they turn away, they are not being rude.  See you at 9 am tomorrow.

Courtroom is well air conditioned, bring a sweater.

Panel is dismissed.  Court is still in session (but not for long - it's 5:16)  Court is in recess except for counsel.

After talking to Zimmerman about the jury selection process, Nelson asked him a question, something about whether he agreed with his attorneys about what categories of potential jurors should be excused. Then she asked if Zimmerman would waive his own presence while she and the lawyers went to another room, I think she said to talk with the potential jurors, or some of them. I lost track of what she was talking about.

Nelson and the lawyers were gone for what seemed to me a surprisingly short time, before returning with the potential jurors who are expected to return tomorrow.

I appreciate all the work you both have done today.  Reading through 9 (!) pages and it felt like being there.

I agree -- NM-NM and CBoldt, and others, you are greatly appreciated. I'm going to lock this thread now and put up  tomorrow's.  That way it will remain as a fact-based, chronoglogical historical reference throughout the trial and afterwards.

Any user who is watching the proceedings live is welcome to update live.  There will also be a thread to comment on each day's proceedings.  I'll leave the comments threads open longer so that those who are catching up a day or two later have a chance to weigh in.
