Attorneys for George Zimmerman announced recently that they would immediately begin posting online all public documents associated with the case, including defense and state motions.

The attorneys said people complained that they posted only some of the paperwork on, "effectively editorializing" through omission or inclusion.

The attorneys write that they maintain the site to counter negative coverage of their client, who is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 death of Trayvon Martin, 17, in Sanford.

Zimmerman says he shot the South Florida teen, who was visiting family, in self-defense.
