Stand Your Ground was not used as a defense by GZ's attorneys. The Defense theory of the case was that GZ was not merely under threat of attack from TM but was actually, physically attacked by him, and was put in a position from which there was no retreat. So the lack in Florida of a duty to retreat, which is what sets Stand Your Ground laws apart from the traditional self-defense doctrine, was not at issue in this case. I'm pretty sure I'm like the 5th or 6th person to explain this on Too Hot?? I wonder if it'll ever sink in.
