I think it's interesting that we've gone five pages without the stand your ground law being mentioned.
1. Defense waived their right to a pre-trial immunity hearing under the stand your ground law and are proceeding with a standard self defense case.
2. Stand your ground is just a portion of self defense that states if a person is attacked, they are not required to retreat and can meet force with force. The attacked person, just like in any other self defense situation, may use deadly force if they reasonably believe it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm.
