Alan Dershowitz Says Zimmerman Prosecutor Went On '40-Minute Rant,' Threatened To Sue Harvard [View all]

By Jeff Weiner, Orlando Sentinel

Famed attorney and legal commentator Alan Dershowitz has been one of the harshest critics of State Attorney Angela Corey's approach to prosecuting George Zimmerman. According to Dershowitz, Corey is none too pleased.

In a column posted on Newsmax.com yesterday, Dershowitz says Corey called Harvard Law School, where he is a professor, and "proceeded to engage in a 40-minute rant, during which she threatened to sue Harvard Law School, to try to get me disciplined by the Bar Association and to file charges against me for libel and slander."

When the school explained Dershowitz has a right to express his opinions, Corey "persisted in her nonstop whining," he writes, "claiming that she is prohibited from responding to my attacks by the rules of professional responsibility."

Dershowitz has been critical of Corey since she charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder in April. He says the probable cause affidavit she filed to support that charge omitted key facts and contained "half truths."
