    I don't know if this has come up before, but it looks like the civil suit against the homeowners assn., and perhaps the property managers, was settled by the insurance carriers for that association, at least according to this article. Not that the civil case necessarily has much of a bearing in the criminal matter against GZ, but I wondered what had happened in that regard.

    It doesn't mention the property manager's situation in this case, although I'm inclined to believe there is a property manager involved and they would have their own policy as well.The likelihood is that the property managers and the property association's carrier each paid their 1 million liability limits, so I'm guessing at least 2 million was paid to the estate. Apparently they did not settle any civil claim against GZ. I don't know what he may have in assets that would be worth going after, I don't suspect he's a man of any means, unless the parent are just looking for their pound of flesh.

    You knew money was going to be exchanging hands over this act of self-defense, especially now that GZ looks like he'll win this trial. TM's family, at least, has cash to take a long trip and get away from all of this... after it's over. Talk shows and such could make them some more mula/greenbacks/cash too.

    Anyone see this?

    http://www.sacbee.com/2013/07/02/5539380/zimmerman-prosecutor-angela-corey.html

    Florida State's Attorney Angela Corey has been indicted by a citizens' grand jury, convening in Ocala, Florida, over the alleged falsification of the arrest warrant and complaint that lead to George Zimmerman being charged with the second degree murder of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.

    The indictment of Corey, which was handed down last week (see www.citizensgrandjury.com), charges Corey with intentionally withholding photographic evidence of the injuries to George Zimmerman's head in the warrant she allegedly rushed to issue under oath, in an effort to boost her reelection prospects. At the outset of this case, black activists such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who whipped up wrath against Zimmerman, demanded that he be charged with murder, after local police had thus far declined to arrest him pending investigation.

    Following Corey's criminal complaint charging Zimmerman, legal experts such as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz condemned her for falsely signing an arrest affidavit under oath, which intentionally omitted exculpatory evidence consisting of the photographs showing the injuries Zimmerman sustained, and rushing to charge him with second degree murder under political pressure. Dershowitz called her actions unethical and themselves crimes (http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/drop-george-zimmerman-murder-charge-article-1.1080161).

    oh yeah this guy ...

    “If they took the time to look, they'd find a long record of scandal, failed lawsuits and outlandish claims that never panned out,” Glasstetter said. “Just last month, Klayman concocted a conspiracy theory about how the Texas fertilizer plant explosion was actually a terrorist attack by foreign Muslims intended to kill George W. Bush. Klayman said that the Obama administration knew all about it but was covering it up.”

    In response, Klayman said, “What do you expect from atheists and ultra-left wing socialists who hate conservatives and people of faith."

    During the Clinton administration, he sued the president more than a dozen times and took depositions from some of the most powerful people in Washington. He is also an author and columnist who peppers his work with sarcastic references to Obama as the “mullah in chief” and has intimated that the Clintons had their political opponents killed. But such vitriol has endeared him to many tea party groups who, like Klayman, regard Obama as un-American at best, or even a foreigner bent on the nation's destruction.

    the link to that article came from their own website.

    she should be prosecuted since she broke law in way similar to a police officer illegally destroying papers by an arresting officer. ie---deliberate misconduct of a public servent who put their opinion illegally ahead of the law.

    Thing is, whether she is guilty or not-- likely has zero reasonable bearing on the Trayvon Martin death case since her actions took place after the death of Martin.

    Fulton and Martin both quit their jobs shortly afterward. Big payday for Crump, too.

    Now I know why Trayvon's dad can afford to sit in court every day and not work.

    Yes, because no one else in this position would take off from work.

    There is no bigger scumbag in the country than Crump. I wish people would quit settling lawsuits with these pieces of trash. Reminds me of another scumbag Charlie Crist that gave the Martin Lee Anderson family 5 million just before the acquittal came. Guess who the family lawyer was?

    That's a ridiculous criticism no matter which side you believe is right in this trial.

    Can anyone tell me why Zimmerman's parents were banned from the proceedings because they were going to be witnesses, but Martin's parents have been present throughout?

    It has been reported that Florida law allows for the immediate family of victims to be present. Presumably, the fact that they are also called to be witnesses doesn't change this. It makes no sense that the law doesn't include immediate family of the defendant.

    That's a law that needs to be revisited.

    Scholarship for whom? High school aged thugs who are caught with drugs and burglary tools who get suspended from school for fighting whose parents have turned their backs on them? Problem is there would likely be a lot of urban youth who qualify for that schollie.

    Just out of curiosity why was the homeowners or plaintiffs sued? What was their negligence?

    Not quite sure of the question. Do you mean the GZ's homeowner's association, in the civil case?

    Their negligence was not having enough security to keep Trayvon off the property. If anyone should sue it should be the homeowners.
