LI: Two Years after Zimmerman Acquittal, Stand-Your-Ground Still in News

Hey folks,

Professor Jacobson has a nice post up on the second anniversary of the Zimmerman acquittal, over at Legal Insurrection:

It’s hard to believe, but this week marks the two-year anniversary of the acquittal of George Zimmerman, on trial for second degree murder and other charges in the killing of Trayvon Martin. You can read more about it at Unexpected thanks to Legal Insurrection on 2nd Anniversary of Zimmerman Acquittal.

It is timely, then, that just last week the Florida Supreme Court handed down a major decision on the state’s self-defense immunity law, § 776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force, in the case of Bretherick v. State, 2015 Fla. LEXIS 1470 (FL Supreme Court 2015).

For the entire post, head over to Legal Insurrection.
