George Zimmerman is suing Trayvon Martin's family

George Zimmerman is suing Trayvon Martin's family

13, 2018, Zimmerman is expected to enter a no contest plea to resolve a misdemeanor charge of stalking a private investigator in the latest George Zimmerman is filing a $100 million lawsuit against Trayvon Martin's family and officials involved in prosecuting him for the teenager's 2012 killing, after a filmmaker known for conspiracy theories claimed that a key witness in the case was faked, according to a South Florida attorney. The incident helped spark the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. Klayman announced a press conference to be held Thursday in Coral Gables.

Mr Zimmerman claimed he shot him in self defence.

The lead defendant in the suit, Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton, has become a national advocate against gun violence in the wake of her son's death.

He argued that he shot Martin in self-defense under Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law.

Zimmerman is seeking at least $100 million USA in damages from Martin's parents, state prosecutors and two women whom he accused in a Polk County, Florida, lawsuit of helping provide false statements to investigators and during the trial, according to court papers.

Martin's family has responded with a statement saying there's no evidence to back Zimmerman's contentions that he was the victim of a conspiracy.

Mr Martin's uncle, Ronald Fulton, 56, said the lawsuit was no more than a publicity stunt to promote a forthcoming documentary titled the "Trayvon Hoax" that alleges Ms Jeantel was an impostor. Fulton, who was thrust into the national spotlight following her son's death, is now running for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission.

Government open to feedback, criticism, says Sitharaman
Entrepreneurs are hesitant to put up fresh projects, for fear of failure attributed to ulterior motives", Singh said. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated, "Home Minister @AmitShah answers on how issues raised by Shri.

'This tale defies all logic, and it's time to close the door on these baseless imaginings'.

Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder charge.

Zimmerman is also suing publisher Harper Collins and author Ben Crump over the recently-released book Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People, which the embattled Florida man claims is defamatory and malicious.

"This plaintiff continues to display a callous disregard for everyone but himself, revictimizing individuals whose lives were shattered by his own misguided actions", he continued.

Zimmerman is represented by Larry Klayman, a high-profile legal crusader tied to conservative causes and the founder of Judicial Watch before splitting with the activist group.

As you no doubt remember, Zimmerman killed 17-year-old Martin on the night of February 26, 2012 in a neighborhood in Sanford, Florida.
