I can't figure out why the defense wants to use this animation so much.  Because they already shelled out $ for it?  And why is the prosecution trying so hard to block it?  It attempts to show the relative positions of Zimmerman and Martin during their physical confrontation.  I do find Nelson very good at questioning the lawyers.  But I am mystified at both the evidentiary and legal aspects under discussion.
