Attorneys For Trayvon Martin Shooter Back In Court

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Attorneys for the man charged in the shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin are back in court seeking movement on a handful of pre-trial motions.

George Zimmerman’s lead defense attorney, Mark O’Mara, is asking for help in obtaining more documents from the FBI’s investigation into possible civil rights violations regarding Martin’s shooting.

O’Mara says the FBI hasn’t been forthcoming enough with the documents it’s released so far and believes they are needed to defend Zimmerman against claims of racial profiling that are central to the case.

The defense also wants to subpoena medical records for a witness who says she was talking to Martin on the phone moments before he was killed.

Zimmerman claims he acted in self-defense in shooting Martin and has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.
