In response to jackbu's comment:
"That is not because of Florida law. That is because of the way the NFL sets up pensions.
As far as I know, Zimmerman does not have a NFL pension.
The Martin family most certainly can go after and win a judgment against Zimmerman. A civil judgment stands for x number of years and can be renewed depending on the state.
The burden of proof is far less than in a criminal trial and this time Zimmerman HAS to testify."
You seriously think that the nfl is greater than the American Justice system? If your theory was correct then OJ would have stayed right in Cali. I hope your source is better then your abc.com source. But please state some case law where the nfl has set up their pension system to protect their players from paying parents of people they murdered. I think this would be really bad press for the NFL.
Civil trials in general are a joke, they are hard to collect with a guilty verdict. Most likely a lawyer knowing this, will want a huge retainer up front from the acquitted murderer Zimmerman.
Simpson has avoided paying the civil judgment because his National Football League pension and his Florida home cannot legally be seized."
The above is according to cbsnews.com.
Again, Simpson's National Football League pension CANNOT be leagally seized!!!
Moved to Florida to protect his home.
"...from the acquitted murderer Zimmerman."
Zimmermerman was found not guilty. Therefore he is not a murderer.
Possible civil trials are against Zimmerman by the Martin family. This is much more likely than a civil trial by Zimmerman against the Martin family or anybody else for that matter. He should count his blesssings and stay out of court.
In a civil trial he would have to testify. Probably not a good thing for him.
Sad to see you want to thump your chest about one small thing...which forum you were permanently banned from. Have you not had enough after you were nailed on another thread about your suspension fron BDC?
As was said, nobody cares just do not continue thumping your chest like Tarzan that it did not happen.
Alternately...we could just stick to the issue at hand..where apparently the debate is over the wisdom or effectiveness of a civil trial..perhaps without making it personal?
I don't know much about civil law..but I do know that the homeowner's association settled with Treyvon Martin's parents for more than 1 million dollars back in April ( or around that time). This doesn't surprise me in the least. After all...the homeowner's association sponsored the neighborhood watch..which was supposed to keep residents of this housing community safe. I would say they failed miserably in the case of Treyvon Martin..wouldn't you?
Also..I think you are taking the term "acquitted murderer" too literally. I actually think that it's the perfect description of Zimmerman..who many feel got away with murder. I think I will use this term the next time I get together with the more racist and bigoted members of my family. It should make things interesting anyhow..lol
I just don't think everything needs to be an argument or a personal attack...and as long as a poster is sticking to the issues it would be nice to not have to read the insults.
