The sounds of courtroom gavels banging drowned out Tuesday by the pounding shreaks and shrills of chainsaws, generators and nail guns.
The parking lot of the Seminole County Courthouse, a virtual construction site as crews from media outlets throughout the state and country worked around the clock setting up shop for the upcoming 2nd degree murder trial of George Zimmerman happening on Monday, May 10th.
Construction workers toiled in the smoldering heat building state-of-the-art mobile news studios for the likes of national cable networks HLN, CNN and TruTV as well as local stations.
Among a sea of tents, trailers and portable toilets stood more than a dozen satellite and live trucks.
The scene was reminiscent of the infamous Casey Anthony trial and its "media village", stationed across the street from the Orange County courthouse that some dubbed, "Casey Town".
As for a suggested moniker for Zimmerman's media village, one news videographer could hardly contain his excitement when sharing his idea, "Zim City".
