Geo. Zimmerman wins one--judge disqualifed
The handling of the Geo. Zimmerman case was beginning to look like a kangaroo court proceeding. However, Zimmerman's motion to disqualify the trial court judge was granted. He will get a new judge. Appellate courts rarely grant such motions. However, this was a rather flagrant case. Perhaps there is a chance Zimmerman will get a fair trial. I'm still not optimistic as the race card undoubtedly will be played (again) once the case gets to trial. However, this is a step in the right direction.
