    The Florida man accused of killing unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin requested a new judge today, accusing the judge of expressing “personal opinions” not suited for court. Lawyers for George Zimmerman filed a motion requesting Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester be removed from the trial. The filing states that “the Court has created a reasonable fear in Mr. Zimmerman that this Court is biased against him and because of this prejudice he cannot receive a fair and impartial trial or hearing by this Court.” This is the second time Zimmerman has requested a new judge.
