With the defense resting in the George Zimmerman trial on Wednesday, the attention of the nation now turns to closing arguments, and ultimately, a verdict.
With the outcome of the case hinging on whether or not the six women jurors will believe the defendant acted in self-defense, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Thomas Mesereau to share his unique insight as part of a live interview:
"Piers, I don't practice [law] in Florida, but I have to believe there's going to be a jury instruction on causation," revealed the criminal defense lawyer. "In other words you have to have caused what the crime was."
With the jury set to receive the case Friday afternoon, Mesereau marveled at some of the complexities that the half dozen Sunshine State citizens will be forced to mull over:
"I have to believe these prosecutors are going to look at the jury and say, 'if a Florida law allows someone to profile someone, disobey police instructions, bring a deadly weapon with them, confront someone, threaten them, assault them, and then when they respond, shoot them dead, is that self-defense in Florida?'" the guest laid out for Piers Morgan. "'Ladies and gentleman you're going to decide that question.' And I suspect it's not so simple."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Morgan and Mesereau preview what figures to be a fascinating conclusion to what's already been one of the most-compelling court cases in recent memory.
