George Zimmerman sues NBC for defamation

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/tv-column/post/george-zimmerman-sues-nbc-for-defamation/2012/12/06/ae15b972-3ffb-11e2-bca3-aadc9b7e29c5_blog.html

George Zimmerman sued NBC Thursday, alleging the network defamed him when it edited the recording of his 911 call to police about Trayvon Martin, in order to make him sound like a “racist and predatory villain” for the sake of ratings.

“NBC News saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain,” Zimmerman alleged in the complaint, filed Thursday in Seminole County, near Orlando.

Technically he would be making money off of the nationwide defamation and potential poisoning of the jury pool and not the shooting of Martin.

Historically the federal government has only taken on cases that they have a strong strong possibility to win.

The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) already conducted an investigation last year and found no racial motivations or civil rights "violations."

and then have more than adequate evidence to charge Mr. Zimmerman for capital murder with enhancement of hate crimes.

Guilty verdict means death sentence.

41. IMO, there's no doubt that it was done with malice intent,

 

otherwise, then why do it? It was very clearly intended to convey the message that G. Zimmerman was racially profiling that night, whether he was or not, I don't know, but the intent of NBC is there.

Now, that being said, a civil jury may not hold NBC personally responsible and just hold the terminated employees responsible, or the may go for the whole kit and caboodle and hold NBC and those involved responsible, or, they may just throw the whole case out.
You never know what a jury will do, if it even makes it that far.

And damages doesn't mean that his little pudgy feelings were hurt it has to be something he can put a price tag on.

As far as I can see he didn't suffer any quantifiable damages from what NBC did.

Maybe he can get his legal fees back but I think his family already convinced a lot of suckers to pick up the tab for those anyway.

Just because the jury was full of idiots, doesn't mean the rest of the country can't see that.

Plus, resisting officer with violence, battery of law enforcement officer, and a restraining order against him for domestic violence.

Nice guy, just the kind of person the world needs walking around with a concealed weapon. Now he's gotten away with murder. He hasn't fooled anyone, except for those six jurors, apparently.

60. FBI will be ordered to reinvestigate

 

thoroughly.

And then George Zimmerman will have to be indicted again, arraigned in a federal court and ordered to stand trial.

Then this time, the 12 members of the jury will definetely find him guilty and sentence him to death.

46. Zimmerman has to prove harm done...

and there was no harm done, NBC took corrective action and fired those responsible and played the call unedited.

The verdict plays no part in this suit, if it did it would actually harm Zimmerman's claim seeing as he was found not guilty.

49. Any and all lawsuits from George Zimmerman should be denied and thrown out, sanctioned

 

and pay a hefty fine.

We have to find ways to punish Zimmerman for his crime.

He will ALWAYS be guilty to me.

77. Should this apply to anyone who is accused of a crime and found not guilty?

Or just the cases where you disapprove of the not guilty verdict?

67. This was filed several months ago.

I can't say that I blame him. The tapes were edited.

71. "He looks like he's up to no good..."

 

Did NBC say they were airing the unedited audio?

80. And so Zimmerman begins to make Millions off of his murder

First he'll sue a bunch of people in the media.

And then he'll publish a book about how he murdered Trayvon Martin and make at least a million dollars off that to, probably more.

81. How does Zimmerman know what NBC intent was on the news cast ? I guess he would have to

prove it. We didn't have to depend on NBC to believe Zimmerman a predatory villain and racist, at any rate.
This arrogant killer is going to use every available source to try and make a monetary killing off his killing.

NBC will settle, as will CNN when Zimmerman sues them.

99. If NBC decides to fight it

They could do some real damage, even if they lose eventually.

Zimmerman would have to agree to be deposed. It might be interesting what comes out of those depositions.

More likely--if there is any chance they could lose, they will settle out of court.
