Zimmerman Update — How Much Injury Is Required Before Self-Defense is Justified?

Hey folks,

I just put up our last Zimmerman post of the weekend over at Legal Insurrection, on the issue of how much injury a person is required to suffer before they can legally use deadly force in self-defense. I’ve linked it below.

In the meantime, don’t forget to join us again tomorrow, 9:00AM, right here at Legal Insurrection for day 6 of the trial proper. As usual we’ll have live-streaming video of the courtroom (dual sources–safety first!), as well as our rolling Twitter feed of selected commentators. My own tweets can always be identified as coming from @LawSelfDefense.

We again plan to provide a mid-time up-date post near the end of the lunch recess (or soon thereafter), or anytime sufficiently exciting events take place during the say.

OK, here’s the link:

See you tomorrow!
