Liberals are going to pull out all the stops to try and win this one.
Check it out:

A Florida judge ruled Tuesday that George Zimmerman’s defense may not bring up Trayvon Martin’s past marijuana use, school suspensions or fighting at trial without another ruling granting them permission, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The ruling comes during a pre-trial hearing two weeks ahead of Zimmerman’s murder trial. He is charged with fatally shooting the unarmed 17-year-old Martin last year during a confrontation at a gated community in Sanford.

The text messages about Martin’s smoking marijuana and trouble at school were released by defense attorneys for George Zimmerman last week, are among the subjects that will be considered Tuesday in Sanford, Fla. The photos released by the defense team also show Martin blowing smoke and making an obscene gesture toward the camera.
