Law & Crime Breaking News: Zimmerman Attorneys Say They May Finish Wednesday

George Zimmerman's attorney says the defense will likely wrap up its case in the neighborhood watch volunteer's second-degree murder trial on Wednesday. Zimmerman, so far, hasn't testified. But jurors saw repeated video recordings of Zimmerman telling his side of the story to police investigators. The defense started its case last Friday, and if it keeps to the schedule anticipated by defense attorney Mark O'Mara, its presentation will take about half of the time of the prosecution. Apple and Amazon have agreed to end their trademark dispute over the right to use the term "app store."?U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton ordered that the entire case be dismissed at the request of both companies. Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Tuesday in the murder trial of Major Nidal Hasan who is accused of killing 13 soldiers in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage, the largest non-combat massacre on a U.S. military base. Hasan, 42, an American-born Muslim who faces the death penalty if convicted by a military panel, is mounting his own defense at his court martial at Fort Hood, an Army base near Killeen, Texas. The case has been delayed by unusual turns including arguments over whether Hasan could keep his beard, the firing or attempted firing of two legal teams and the removal of a military judge.
