  •  it'll be a lot easier to prevail at trial. (0+ / 0-)

    in the SYG hearing, Z had to prove self-defense by a preponderance of the evidence, while at trial the prosecution has to prove he didn't act in self-defense beyond a reasonable defense.

    the only downside to trial is that he'll have to defend himself in the inevitable civil suit when the Martins sue him, but it still makes sense to get this over with first.

    •  civil suit? (0+ / 0-)

      If Z wins the self-defense immunity, there will be no civil suits.  

      By the time a civil suit is filed, Z will be indigent and penniless.  The ink will have run out in his autograph pen.

      The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
