Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 04, 2019

The former Florida neighborhood watchman who was acquitted of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin seven years ago is suing the dead teenager's family and others who were involved in the racially charged case that divided the nation for $100 million.

George Zimmerman claims in a lawsuit filed by his lawyer, conservative nonprofit Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman, that the case against him rested on false evidence and is alleging abuse of civil process and conspiracy.

Specifically, the suit contends that the prosecution's key witness against Zimmerman at his 2013 murder trial, Rachel Jeantel, was an "imposter and fake witness."

Benjamin Crump, who is also named in the suit, is the lawyer for Martin's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. He released a statement that dismissed the lawsuit as "another failed attempt to defend the indefensible and a shameless attempt to profit off the lives and grief of others."

George Zimmerman kills Trayvon Martin under suspicious circumstances, and then in court, his lawyer puts the victim on trial, but he's eventually acquitted. Now seven years later, he's suing the victim's family for $100 million because he feels he was denied a fair trial. For crap sake, he won his case and got away with murder, but now he wants to cash-in by destroying what's left of a family that he's already devastated once before.
