The defense felt that testimony that the voice was Trayvon's would be detrimental to their case, as it would show that Martin had ceased fighting with Zimmerman, called for help, then Zimmerman continued to fire his weapon at him. If the expert stated it was Zimmerman's voice calling for help, it would support the defense theory that Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense.
On June 22, 2013, Judge Debra Nelson ruled that the audio experts would not be called in to testify regarding the voice heard on the 911 call. That does not mean; however, that the calls will not later surface during the trial.
