Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz: Trayvon Martin Affidavit So Thin It Won’t Make It Past a Decent Judge (Headline Corrected)

Yesterday Harvard Law professor and liberal icon Alan Dershowitz appeared on MS-NBC’s Hardball, and declared that the case by the Trayvon Martin special prosecutor Angela Corey is not only weak because it is completely consistent with a claim of self-defense. It is unethical because it omits exculpatory evidence favorable to George Zimmerman. Clearly Dershowitz is disgusted by what he thinks is a politically-motivated over-charging by a grandstanding prosecutor.


Dershowitz also asked why all the records are sealed in this chase, and speculated that perhaps the prosecutor is in the process of making a deal with the defense. He’s probably correct, and the crime is probably going to be negligent homicide, or whatever the equivalent is in Florida.


  1. Your headline writer must be illiterate. The headline should read “past,” not “passed.”

    • You are so right, and the illiterate is me! I’d like to blame my dictation software, but I still should have corrected it. Thanks so much!

      • LOL Carrie, that’s all you have to say?

        Nice post, anyway, Teri. I love Dershowitz’s level-headedness.
