The day commenced outside the hearing of the jury to debate what evidence could be introduced during the prosecution’s rebuttal after the defense stated it would rest its case. Mr. Chauvin told Judge Cahill that he would invoke his Fifth Amendment right to not testify in his trial. The defense cross-examined Dr. Martin Tobin, a pulmonary and critical care physician, to provide further testimony on the results of blood tests conducted on Mr. Floyd. Judge Cahill then instructed the jury to reconvene the following Monday for closing arguments, and he next reconvened court after the defense rested so that attorneys for both sides could address the court over any concerns with the instructions provided to the jury.
