Skip to comments.PICKET: Elderly FLA couple lawyers up after Spike Lee address tweet
Posted on 03/28/2012 7:06:38 PM PDT by kristinn
It was bound to happen. The elderly Sanford, Florida couple whose address was misidentified by a tweet from a Los Angeles man and later retweeted by filmmaker and actor Spike Lee, has hired the Morgan & Morgan law firm to represent them, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
Before my initial visit to Alaine and David McClain's residence Tuesday morning, I suspected the address that Marcus D. Higgins first tweeted out to Mr. Lee and others was not the home of Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman. I noticed through Google Earth that the neighborhood was not a gated community and was several miles from the Retreat at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place. Furthermore, there were no reports that massive crowds were gathering around Mr. Zimmerman's residence either.
My suspicions were confirmed after I spoke with a neighbor of the McClain's, Tim, who told me several news agencies had already passed through the area looking for Mr. Zimmerman and that an Elaine lived at the address not Trayvon Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman. I was surprised, given the gravity of the potential danger to the occupant living at the Edgewater Circle address, that other news outlets had not reported the case of mistaken identity already.

Sue him back to the ‘hood!!!!!
Outstanding! I hope they bankrupt that worthless,talentless piece of....
Better Call Saul!
This is the best news to come out of this case yet!
Let the games begin. Discovery always trumps a Liberal.
Good. I hope they sue the worthless no-load for all he is worth.
This is a slam dunk case too, lee will at least have to buy their home and put out mega bucks for the emotional harm he has caused. But there should also be punitive damages too. I doubt the couple will ever return to the home, they will send out movers to get their stuff. I certainly would not spend a night in that now condemned house.
I saw that the Zimmermans who were falsely outed by Shelton Lee hired a attorney!, Matt Morgan! The son of John Morgan!
This is the son of Zerobmas largest donors and personal friend o the Messiah.
I find that this very odd and down right evil!
Invitation to dinner at John Morgans home.
Sounds to me like a real conflict of interest if said attorney does not have a real interest in his clients rights.
Can you say SLEASE?
I actually will PRAY that the residents of that home win the case and cause Lee to go into poverty. BWAHAHAHAHA
Sue his socks off. He deserves it. That final tweet of his is the nail in his coffin.
Good for them. Hope they get his last cent.
