Zimmerman Trial LIVE – Jury Selection Day 5 All-Day Coverage

Zimmerman Trial LIVE – Jury Selection Day 5 All-Day Coverage

Today we will again be covering the Zimmerman Jury Selection Day Five live, all day, along with a separate end-of-day wrap-up post. To catch up on the lastest events in State of Florida v. Zimmerman, click here and take a look at last night’s wrap-up post.

As usual we will be maintaining live-stream video coverage, just below, as well as rolling Twitter coverage from selected commentators, including me, at the bottom of this page. In between the video stream and Twitter feed I’ll post regular updates throughout the day to note any events of particular significance. At day’s end I will put up a separate wrap-up post discussing major events of the day, and their implications for the case moving forward. Thanks for joining us!

Friday, June 14

Court is scheduled to begin at 9AM, although typically there are a few minutes of non-public court business before the live TV coverage begins in earnest.

Breaking News

A substantial number of prospective jurors were selected out, sent home for the weekend, and told they would be called back for questioning next week. They were given the usual admonish about not discussion or researching the case.

You’ve done such a top job just in the first week that this trial’s been going, Andrew. Thank you so much, and thanks to Professor Jacobson for giving you a platform.

I see that Jerry Counelis (juror E7), the #TeamTrayvon™ shill who was dismissed for being “less than truthful” with the court, had to be removed from the court today. He’d come back and was apparently angry and perplexed and demanding answers as to how the defense managed to discover the public pro-Trayvon anti-Zimmerman web postings he’d decided not to tell them about when under oath.

Somebody should have told him to Google “search engines” 😉
