There are 3 Zimmerspects we are still engaged upon. 1.) The malicious firing of Ben Kruidbos [pronounced like “cried boss”]. 2.) The internal fraud within the 4th SAO; and 3.)

ORLANDO, FL – Lawyers for State Attorney Angela Corey say she has “sovereign immunity” and are asking a judge to throw out a lawsuit filed against her in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case.
Ben Kruidbos, her former information technology director, was fired in June after he testified that prosecutors did not turn over all information to Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of the 17-year-old. Kruidbos said he was a whistleblower and under the law cannot be fired.
