Sounds like the state is acting illegally in bringing the case at all. What am I missing??
The civil case has already been settled out of court. The parents received a large settlement from the HOA’s insurance company in April.
And if there is no prospect for big money all these carpetbagging race hustlers will disappear faster than they arrived.
Their bullshyte civil case will be lots tougher once Gorge Zimmerman is found not guilty.....So lets hope for that. At most Zim will be guilty on much lesser charges than murder. These money grubbing Treyvon lawyers will be jury shopping. They will want a civil trial done in Miami or other mostly minority location
I believe the insurance company for the homeowners association has already paid a settlement to the family. That was a very fast and quiet civil case, and the amount involved was about $1.5M if I remember correctly.
self defense provides for absolue civil immunity. The ONLY way to pursue him is with a conviction and only a conviction that stands after appeal.
This is just trial lawyers try to reboot an area of tort law that was shut down and eliminated after the stand your ground law passed.
Florida’s stand your ground law eliminates the duty to retreat and civil liability suits.
the OJ civil suit would never have happened under FL law or any state with similar law.
This lawyer should have frivolous suit sanctions if he files after a not guilty. (lawyers AND clients are PERSONALL liable for frivolous suits)
Spineless liberals no doubt. They wanted to pay off dear little Trayvon's family before Zimmerman was found not guilty. The residents who pay the insurance premiums should counter sue the HOA, the insurance company, and the Scheme Team.
I guess we all need to carry “throw down” weapons.
It’s a sissy-ass state that is afraid of a few animals in the streets and will periodically sacrifice people to keep them in line. Apparently money isn’t enough.
The sad thing it there probably are witnesses who saw the entire incident and maybe even videos. But they’re afraid to come forward.
Translation: “Our efforts to legally lynch Whitey into a long prison sentence seem to be failing, so we’re going to see if we can lynch Whitey financially.”
This whole thing does seem to be rather a test of whether black people, simply for being black, can intimidate, shake down and dominate white people.
Or, to put it another way: The whole thing has an air of “stickin’ it to da [white] man,” and of laying the groundwork for doing more of the same in the future.
The residents who pay the insurance premiums should counter sue the HOA, the insurance company, and the Scheme Team.
Now this is just silly. What is the basis of the "counter-suit" in the first place? The residents weren't the defendants in the case, so there's no "counter-suit" to be filed. If any resident decides on his own that he wants to sue any of the parties you've listed, the first problem he's going to have is convincing a court that he even has the proper legal standing to file such a lawsuit. He'd first have to demonstrate that he has suffered some kind of financial loss, which he can't possibly do when the insurance company is paying the settlement.
LOL. I thought you had your butt at home.
It was testified to that his credit problems kept him from joining the police force.
Yes, found they had settled for an undisclosed amount, likely the policy limit that was said to be $1M. Settled ahead of the criminal trial starting, showing in my opinion the parents recognized an acquittal / not guilty verdict weighs against their claim (though the burden of proof would be less in the civil trial).
it may be a contingent settlement dependent on a guilty plea.
confidential or not, the settlement is discoverable via subpoena regadless
Just before this statute was signed into law the usual suspects (including some prosecutors from liberal counties) were campaigning hard and loud against it's passage. They've been pissed ever since and are trying everything in their power to get it changed.
Make no mistake this is not only about Zimmerman but a challenge to Florida Statute 776.032
I'm not a lawyer but I suspect they have to get some sort of conviction. If they don't, Zimmerman can and should sue the State under the above Statute.
They may have something else up their sleeve like a Federal Civil Rights suit. This crap isn't going away anytime soon.
Is thre any sort of a federal civil-rights suit which could end up with GZ in prison, particularly AFTER he’d been acquitted in a flori-duh courtroom of the same charge?
Short answer is yes. It won't be the same charge (2nd degree murder) however since that isn't a Federal crime. I suspect it'll be something like violating Trayvon Martin's civil rights under the Federal Civil Rights Act. I'll defer to the real lawyers here who are more familiar with the specifics of the Civil Rights Act.
At that point I’d advise GZ to either go underground or find another country like Bobby Fijnje and his familyy did.
“they also want to make it a crime to follow what one may consider a suspicious person.”
only if the person is of color.
By the way, reading a few of your recent posts, you seem to be one of few that really understands what’s going on and why.
Unfortunately our “overseers” keep treating them like spoiled children, giving in when they throw a tantrum. More “walkin’ aroun’ money” for the “community organizers” for “conflict resolution” and foot washing stations for those that pray to Satan when what is needed harsh discipline.
