O'Mara calls what the prosecution is doing with Zimmerman's transcripts a "fishing expedition."
[Update at 3:29 p.m. ET]
O'Mara said the defense has taken "pains" to not get into Martin's past, and he thinks this trial should be focused on what happened that night.
[Update at 3:28 p.m. ET]
Judge Nelson is back on the bench, and O'Mara is objecting to the evidence prosecutors are about to present from Zimmemran's course work pursuing a criminal justice degree. O'Mara said it was not relevant to the case. Proseuctor Rich Mantei said the course work shows he pursued a criminal justice degree but did not finish it. Mantei said they are also planning to show the jury how Zimmerman applied to be a police officer, but his application was denied. Mantei said it is relevant, because it shows Zimmerman wanted catch bad guys, and it may show that Zimmerman may have the knowledge to know what to say to law enforcement when they arrived at the scene.
