First Served ! George Zimmerman Sues NBC – Defamation, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, demand for preservation of evidence, demand for jury trial

NBC lawsuitGeorge Zimmerman has filed a civil lawsuit against NBC, Ron Allen and Jeff Burnside.

[…]  What happened that night was a tragedy: a tragedy that NBC exploited, creating an opportunity for profit. I am holding NBC accountable for its actions. If NBC had not spread lies and falsifications about me, this lawsuit would not exist. This lawsuit is a product of NBC’s intentional distortion of facts. I do not know, because of my situation, how I will be able to provide for my wife and myself in the future, and so I expect NBC to be held responsible. The unjustified public persecution of me because of NBC’s actions is wrong. It shouldn’t have happened to me, and it shouldn’t happen to anyone.

In the last several months, the prosecutors have released evidence regarding this case, and the evidence speaks for itself regarding my innocence. As this lawsuit moves forward, I hope the existence of this exonerating evidence will be broadcast with at least a fraction of the publicity afforded to the lies and misrepresentations. I deserve that and those who have been misinformed deserve that. However, that will be up to the ethical journalists who will spread the truth without regard or concern for political or social pressure.

We had previously outlined the probability of George Zimmerman suing NBC.   Today the first filing took place.   The O’Mara Law Group and The Beasely Firm (Philadelphia) are co-counsel.  http://www.beasleyfirm.com   Defamation, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, demand for preservation of evidence, demand for jury trial.

The largest defamation award in Pennsylvania history was previously awarded to The Beasley Firm,  $34,000,000.00 !     Suffice to say NBC, and numerous others, have opened themselves to SERIOUS litigation.

    And just in time for Christmas, I am reminded of a funny old saying in Spanish: “A todo puerco le llega su Navidad…..”

    Don’t know if I can do it justice, but loosely translated to English:

    “Eventually, every pig has its Christmas….”

    This from the Spanish traditional Christmas feast: roasted pig on a spit :).

    I told my wife months ago that the state would do everything it could to get a plea bargain because they have no case.

    Now…I get the “Tampa Bay Times” newspaper daily (for the comics, crosswords, and coupons – $52 for a year). It calls itself the biggest paper in the Southeast…and it’s very liberal…weekly perp fiction stories about “misunderstood” murderers. I very rarely see any Trayvon news in this paper. Curious about the NBC lawsuit since it wasn’t in today’s print paper, i found only a small blurb on their website…but you have to look for it. Needless to say, if not for the Treehouse, there would be no info about Zimmerman’s plight.

    Keep up the good work!
