ORLANDO, Fla. -- The former neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin is objecting to prosecutors' request for his medical records.
George Zimmerman asked a judge this week to stop a subpoena for his medical records. A hearing is set for Friday.
Zimmerman says the request is too broad and will include information that is irrelevant.
The medical information would be made public if it is released to prosecutors under Florida's discovery rules.
Zimmerman is asking that the judge review the medical records and decide which, if any, should be released.
He's charged with second-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Martin during a confrontation last February in a gated community in suburban Orlando.
He has pleaded not guilty and is claiming self-defense.
