Judge Debra Nelson directly asked defendant George Zimmerman if he had made a decision as to whether to testify in his trial, overruling the continual objections of his defense attorneys in a heated exchange Wednesday afternoon.

“Have you made a decision as to whether or not you want to testify in this case?” Judge Nelson asked Zimmerman after reminding him of his rights both to remain silent and speak on his behalf.

After two objections from defense attorney Don West, Nelson said rather testily, “Overruled. The Court is entitled to inquire if Mr. Zimmerman’s determination as to whether or not he wants to testify.”
