No one was more surprised than me when two days ago, on the second anniversary of the George Zimmerman acquittal, I was contacted out of the blue by Zimmerman’s co-counsel, Don West.

Don had contacted me because he was primarily interested in some of the initiatives we have in the works here at Law of Self Defense, particularly our LOSD Certified Instructor and LOSD Lawyer Referral programs, and I was more than happy to discuss those with him.

He prefaced our 45-minute discussion, however, with very complementary remarks on my coverage of the George Zimmerman trial itself, of which coverage he had only recently become aware.

It was, of course, gratifying to hear such praise from a man who co-led perhaps the most perfect self-defense trial I’ve observed in my career.

When I mentioned my conversation with Don to Professor Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection, where I blogged the bulk of my coverage of the Zimmerman trial, the Professor brilliantly suggested we follow-up with Don and ask if he’d record a brief testimonial about our coverage, such that we could use the recording in a blog post on the anniversary of the acquittal.

Within seconds Don had been kind enough to do so:

Professor Jacobson promptly incorporated that audio in a larger post over at Legal Insurrection:

It seems there may be some prospect of Don and I doing some modest work together in the future, which is naturally of great interest to me personally.  Assuming it’s not a matter constrained by confidentiality obligations, should that come to pass you’ll hear about it here first.

That’s it for now, folks. Stay safe!
