I am guessing that the homeowners association insurance company decided to buy off the parents fairly cheaply prior to the trial. They saw how the case was going, weighed the possible outcomes and decided that the guaranteed cost of buying them off for a certain amount before the trial was less than the expected cost of the lawsuit award when they are done railroading Zimmerman. And yes, the money will be gone in a year.

My guess is that the settlement amount is a reflection of how much it would cost to defend the claim, plus any fallout from bad press - regardless of the outcome. IOW, the settlement is likely a reflection of the cost of WINNING, not the cost of losing ;-)
