    Zimmerman's turn

    Zim is gonna sue the pants off NBC for visciously editing the 911 call.  NBC's defense was when he is convicted, any defamation was the result of his own actions.

    That excuse just died.

    NBC will settle up and fast, lest they have to report on their own sleaze.

    He should! It was possibly a big factor in public opinion. When I heard their version I thought he was profiling as well!

    Re: Zimmerman's turn

    Im also not so sure that there will be a civil suit against Zimmerman

    No.  Fla. Stat. s.776.032 provides for an award of attorney's fees, costs and even lost income against the plaintiff if there's a judicial finding that the defendant is immune from suit due to the justifiable use of force.

     

    I don't think that the jury verdict is dispositive of that issue.   Since Zimmerman didn't have a "stand your ground" hearing in the criminal case, I think he will probably have to have one in any civil suit filed against him.  

     

    The prospect of actually paying Zimmerman might be enough to deter the Martin family from filing suit.  To them I'm sure it would be adding insult to injury.

    I know government has immunity except in certain situations, but I think Zimmerman has a case against Holder.  To say that you will pursue civil rights violations when your own FBI reports that none exist in this case, is well outside the bounds of acceptable government actions.  It is more fitting of a 3rd world country.

    Zim is going to need to win a big settlement from NBC because TM's parent are going to sue the pants off him.  And I'm betting that TM's parents get a bigger award than Zim.

    Zimm won't get to enjoy any settlement.. living in a cave.

    The man has a global bullseye on his back. HIS life is destroyed along with all family. They are all victems. Just the thought of it must be a constant weight on him.
