ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The prosecutor in the case of the former neighborhood watch leader charged in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin is asking the judge to deny a defense request to delay the trial.
 
In a written response to the motion to postpone the trial until November, state attorney Bernie de la Rionda said that George Zimmerman's attorneys weren't following the judge's suggestions for obtaining wanted discovery documents faster.  
 
On Wednesday, Zimmerman's attorneys asked for more time to prepare, saying prosecutors had been slow to turn over evidence. De la Rionda responded saying the defense "wants the state to do its job."
 
Zimmerman is claiming he acted in self-defense in shooting Martin last year and is pleading not guilty to a second-degree murder charge.
 
A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
