Zimmerman Trial Day 10: Some Words Not Allowed
It was a short day in court in the George Zimmerman murder trial.
Some last minute business was cleared up before Monday's opening statements.
First on the agenda?
Certain words that the judge has prohibited attorneys from saying.
But the defense seems to have lost in this battle of words.
The defense fought to prohibit any use of the phrase "racial profiling."
But the judge did not rule in their favor.
While "racial profiling" is prohibited, the term "profiling" can be used, in reference to factors like the clothes that Trayvon Martin was wearing the night he was killed.
Next on the agenda?
Will the judge allow an audio expert for the prosecution to testify about the hotly-contested 911 call made the night of the shooting.
She did not have her decision in court this morning, waiting to release it in a written document rather than in open court.
Her decision is the last hurdle before opening statements on Monday.
