Tonight at 9: Both lawyers from the Trayvon Martin case, the "Bee" adds vocab., and Ben Ferguson on "The Grill"

On a day which has seen George Zimmerman lose a handful of potentially critical pretrial motions, this evening Piers Morgan welcomes a collection of the case's significant players.

Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, and Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Trayvon Martin's family, will each return to "Piers Morgan Live" for one-on-one interviews, while legal experts and decorated courtroom veterans Gloria Allred and Alan Dershowitz will supply all the relevant insight and context as part of Tuesday evening's "Law and Disorder" segment.

Meanwhile, as the program returns with it's "The Grill" segment, conservative radio host Ben Ferguson will join live from Texas, mixing it up with the host in a debate that touches upon some of the day's most-polarizing topics.

Also, as the legendary Scripps National Spelling Bee prepares to add a vocabulary test to the syllabus, a pair of former champs – Snigdha Nandipati (2012) and Nupur Lala (1999) – will each offer their reaction as changes are made to the world-renowned "Bee."

And, as always, tonight at 9 Morgan will be taking twitter questions live, and answering them on the air. Have something you'd like hear the host's opinion on? Send him your thoughts using the exclusive hashtag #DearPiers.

    Piers you are my hero. Please tell the world we need to vote out every republican. They pounce on things that are irrelevant
    while people are suffering and committing suicide because they cannot support themselves or their family. We really need to send how we feel straight to the polls.

    "these ssholes, they always get away.

    The dispatcher asked Zimmerman if he was following him. When Zimmerman answered, "yeah," the dispatcher said, "We don't need you to do that." Zimmerman responded, "Okay

    “According to a records search on George, he was previously arrested for domestic violence, resisting an officer without violence and most shockingly, resisting an officer with violence — a felony charge that surely could have landed him in prison.

    So how was someone with a violent past including that of battery against an officer able to carry a 9 mm handgun

    “George Zimmerman Deserves Jail Time For Lying About His Finances

    jailhouse tapes of Zimmerman talking to his wife, Shelly, about the amount in his online defense fund. Ever since the judge ordered Zimmerman back to jail, donations to Zimmerman’s online defense fund have begun to significantly increase from the original $1,000 a day the fund was receiving.”

    Since the Trayvon Martin case, has your team also become aware of the incident of Julian Dawkins, black, age 22 and also unarmed, being shot to death by an Arlington County Sheriff's Deputy?

    1. the "stand your ground" law DOES NOT apply if you are the aggressor so Zimmerman will not qualify by law please read the law

    2, Also what I am hearing on your horrible show right now -Travon should have been killed because he smoked pot??

    By the time I was 14 years old I was 6'1" tall and 240 pounds. I am an African American, and one day when I was sitting in a restaurant with some of my friends a man came over to our table to chastise me and my friends about our language and how loud we were. This event turned into a physical confrontation outside the establishment as the man figured that he was going to teach me some manners, but unfortunately for him and myself, I beat him up and was charged and convicted of assault. Any time I thought someone was sticking their nose into my business or paying a little too much attention to what I was doing another confrontation occurred. We now know that Mr. Martin was already known by the police and not just for marijuana. Even if Mr. Zimmerman continued to follow after he was told not to, Mr. Martin obviously confronted him and the fight was on! Mr. Zimmerman did not count on the fact that Mr. Martin was very easily able to overpower him and ended up being shot and killed. Unfortunately the stand your ground, still applies even if Mr. Zimmerman instigated it! Mr. Martin's family and their lawyer are trying to start a racial situation. By this I mean, that if they don't get a conviction a riot, similar to what happened in 96 with the Rodney King case should ensue. Trying to force justice is not helping our race at all. I find it amusing that they never mention the number of black on black crimes that are committed every day! Why are they not trying to seek justice of some sort for these things? Let the system do its job, and you do not have to be happy with the outcome, but if you try to force justice, you're only setting back justice for our race even further!
