However, the media companies countered that violates Florida's especially open public records laws. The judge ruled that under Florida law, more information needed to be made public. He also said that he needed 30 days to do that.

Zimmerman has claimed that he shot the unarmed 17-year-old Feb. 26 in self-defense.

The prosecution has accused the neighborhood watchman of "profiling" Martin, who is black; following him; and entering into a confrontation that eventually led him to draw his weapon and shoot Martin in the chest.

Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara wrote on his blog that once he receives all the evidence from the state he will begin deposing about 50 witnesses, including experts. He added the trial is now not expected to begin until 2013.

O'Mara has brought on a new co-counsel to help him with the case, Orlando attorney Donald West, who specializes in murder cases.

West resigned from his post at the federal public defender's office in Orlando specifically to join O'Mara and defend Zimmerman.
