Hearing Over Zimmerman's Legal Fundraising

George Zimmerman's attorney says he'll disclose more than $200,000 raised by a website created for his legal defense.

Today's hearing was initially scheduled to deal with several media organizations, including The Associated Press, asking the judge to unseal documents from Zimmerman's court file.

Mark O'Mara said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night that he learned about the money Wednesday and will inform a judge at Friday's hearing.

Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was released from jail this week after paying 10 percent of $150,000 bail.

O'Mara says the bail amount may have been higher if the judge knew Zimmerman had raised $200,000.
