Dershowitz called the affidavit justifying Zimmerman’s arrest “not only thin, it’s irresponsible.” He went on to criticize the decision to charge Zimmerman for second degree murder by special prosecutor Angela Corey as being politically motivated.-Harvard Prof. Alan Dershowitz: Zimmerman Arrest Affidavit ‘Irresponsible And Unethical’
He says "a good judge will throw this out".
"This affidavit doesn't even make it to probable cause. Everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense. Everything. Even if he [Zimmerman] was the provocateur you still have traditional self-defense under Florida law. If in fact Zimmerman provoked him but then Martin got on top and was banging his head against the ground, he still has a traditional right of self-defense."
