Even though Martin had two levels of security on the phone, the judge is arguing that someone else could have sent those messages. Given the giant, undeniable relevance to the self-defense issue, I'm shocked that the judge is thinking about keeping this information away from the jury. If that does indeed happen, and Zimmerman is found guilty, the man will have a huge case for an appeal.
Did the defense bring this up? Thousands of them? All by someone else? This judge is giving them hell.
