Under the terms of the settlement, Trayvon's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, agreed to drop their wrongful death claim as well as claims for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and expenses.

Crump pulls it off. I guess we can add robbery to assault with intent to do great bodily harm to the deceased's legacy.

It is often cheaper to settle than win in court

After the lawyers get theirs, Trayvon’s parents will be lucky if they get $85.38 out of the deal.

Wait a minute. Isn’t one feature of the castle doctrine and stand your ground that you cannot be sued in civil court for defending yourself?

Probably a bargain for society. Think of how much a budding thug like little travomn would have cost us? How many robberies,rapes, are murders would he have commited after killing zimmerman? Eventually the law would have caught up. How much would we have paid for a public defender, endless appeals and all the prison housing costs? In the end trayvon would have become a Muslim in prison. One day,not too far off, Holder would grant black muslim prisoners blanket amnesty to be let out and kill all the whiteys he could. So a million is a bargain.

The family didn't sue Zimmerman. They sued the Homeowners' Association. I bet an insurance company just wanted the whole thing to go away.

Sounds like an insurance company decision to settle for policy limits.

They often decide to settle rather than take the chance on an unfavorable verdict. If there's a history of high jury verdicts in the county, plus the notoriety of the case, it's a good business decision.

Plus, in many states (I don't know about FL specifically) if a plaintiff's lawyer makes a demand and the insurer does not settle, and the verdict comes in for more than the demand, the insurer is on the hook for the entire amount plus attorney fees and costs.

So yeah, it's a good business decision.

You know who got most of it? The lawyers! 33 1/3 % plus expenses. By the time they’re through the deceased’s family will get a few thousand.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the lawyers’ cut was 50% or even more, given the facts.

I have been thinking that since November. This country had the opportunity to hire a CEO that would have worked really hard to put us back on the road to prosperity. Instead we have the First Thug bringing us to bankruptcy and lying and smiling all the way there. Such a pity for the former greatest country on earth.

What a country! Only in America can a worthless piece of thug flesh end up being valued at $1M.
