POLK COUNTY, Florida – The original Florida Man, George Zimmerman, has filed a lawsuit against the Martin family, publishers, prosecutors and others involved in the 2012 Trayvon Martin murder trial for $100 million, basing his case on falsifying evidence, civil damages, alleging defamation, abuse of civil process & conspiracy.

He is being represented by a known right-wing conservative lawyer, who is a former member and the founder of the conservative organization Judicial Watch.

The suit cites information in a documentary about the case titled “The Trayvon Hoax” that accuses the Martin family of engineering false testimony.

In 2012 George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighboorhood watch volunteer was acquitted of murder charges after following 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a south Florida neighborhood and eventually shooting and killing the young man.

The court trial was a spectacle for all to follow along and was the catalyst to our modern social climate that often illustrates a political white vs black mentality with police shootings and other LEO violence towards black people. Most would say Zimmerman was lucky he is not spending a lifetime in prison for murdering a young man.
