Media granted access to evidence in FL gas station teen murder case


Hey folks, Earlier today Circuit Judge Russell Healey denied a defense motion to limit media access to discovery evidence in the trial of Michael Dunn.

Michael Dunn is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Jordan Davis, a 17-year-old high school student. (We previously covered this case here: Next Florida self-defense trial: Loud music, teens in a car and a shooting.)

For my full post on this, as well as the full-text of Judge Healey's order denying the motion, check out my post over at Legal Insurrection:
