5. Interesting.

From a legal standpoint, you are of course correct.

But from the persepctive of people who have asked (generally) that we stop using the name of the perpetrators of hate-based violence, calling it the Floyd trial also makes sense. It emphasizes the person who was murdered, rather than the murderer. When I hear it referred to as the Floyd trial what comes to my mind is seeking justice for George Floyd.
