A Florida judge has ruled that tweaks to the state's controversial "stand your ground" law are unconstitutional.
The original law, passed in 2005, made it easier for people to justify threatening or using force to defend themselves.
But Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Milton Hirsch said the legislature doesn't have the power to make those kinds of legal tweaks. That right is reserved for the state's Supreme Court.
Hirsch's ruling won't affect how "stand your ground" is implemented in other cases. But it will probably trigger an appeal, which might end up before Florida's Supreme Court.
