Zimmerman Defense Motion for Judgment of Acquittal

Legal Insurrection posts a thorough analysis of the oral motion for a judgment of acquittal made after the State closed their case against George Zimmerman. Law Junkies and lawyers will want to read the whole thing. For the rest of us, the results are summed up in the introduction:

The motion was well-reasoned, and strongly founded on Florida’s case law. It was also doomed to fail before a Judge who has consistently denied reasonable defense motions out of hand, while rubber-stamping motions by the State that bear not the slightest relevancy to the facts of this case.

Best comment I found:

It appears that the State is suffering from the same problem that plagued Trayvon Martin: Poor victim selection skills.
