The Fifth District Court of Appeal today ruled that Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, must sit down and answer questions under oath by George Zimmerman’s attorneys.

In the just-released ruling, the court wrote that Zimmerman’s lawyers have a right to question Crump about his dealings with a woman who’s expected to be the state’s most important witness.

She’s a young Miami woman who was on the phone with Trayvon moments before he was shot.

Zimmerman’s attorneys had twice asked trial judge Debra S. Nelson to order Crump to sit down for a deposition, and twice she said no.
