Judge rules against George Zimmerman in NBC lawsuit Zimmerman claimed defamation in edited 911 call
SANFORD, Fla. - A judge on Monday ruled against George Zimmerman in a defamation lawsuit he filed against NBC Universal over edited 911 calls made after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in 2012.
In the ruling, Judge Debra S. Nelson said, "There are no genuine issues of material fact upon which a reasonable jury could find that the Defendants acted with actual malice."

The same judge as the trial? Talk about the fix is in.
This is a lying “judge.” Tar and feathers are in order.
This ruling goes against all logic. NBC fired the person responsible. They admitted malice aforethought. Ballots will not fix what’s wrong with this country.
Actual Malice is only required in a case of libel or slander against a “public figure”.
Not surprised. George needs to get on with his life. It seems like the police are leaving him alone and the media has gone on to something else. George needs to go and continue his life out of the limelight. He gave it a try and failed (the lawsuit). Now it is time to close this chapter and start a new one.
Tell me about, this ZImmerman can’t win for losing with this bias b*tch. What he should do is file suit in New York city, corporate headquarters of NBC - NBC Universal. I believe that is where the audio tape was edited as well. Don’t know if he will have any better luck being that NYC is another sewer of leftist schmuckos, but it wouldn’t hurt to try. Either way, this Orlando is corrupt as hell, he’s never going to get any justice down there.
It’s malice when they deliberately distorted the facts.
Can a white-Hispanic appeal the ruling?
I wouldn’t move on with my life until I got the maximum amount of revenge possible. Remember: This guy came *this* close to spending the rest of his life in jail because he had the audacity to defend himself from someone who was trying to kill him. Oh no no no, I would be spending every single last cent I had to see every last piece of human filth who tried to destroy my life was left broke and in the gutter.
Yes. I would have thought a different judge would have been on this case, especially given the likelihood liberals have threatened her.
This is a very rare ruling.
the real next step is to see which lawyers tried the cases and relationships with the judge. There will be indications of a fix.
The answer is simple, $$$$$ talks, the pressure of a favorable verdict would have damage the regime’s agenda. Since the alphabets are the voice of the regime, did you really expect a favorable verdict? Same judge too? I bet she’ll have some extra bucks coming soon for her campaign chest.(or home upgrade). ;0
In the mind of this judge it is necessary for the media to be able to disseminate false information when it supports liberal political agenda, or backs up the purpose of a radical politician; in this case the Obama/Holder cabal.
This ruling will be reversed on appeal. It’s a no-brainer.
Indeed. Assuming this is Orange/Seminole circuit court the appeal would go... where? To FL Supreme Court or would it to the Federal District. It should be appealed on the basis of the actual judge who should have recused herself. What a kangaroo biotch with political aspirations. Oh, and a porker to boot.
This is how the neo-socialist Crist FL would work— take note Freepers.
Imagine, having to defend yourself for defending yourself as proven already in a court of law. How is it that the judge did not recuse and kick this to a different docket?
This has changed rules of engagement for “volunteer” neighborhood watchers. It caused the police chief to be kicked out (improperly as well, and replaced with a dermatologically acceptable put up lib who cannot stop what FL state law allows... so far).
This is an example of what happens in a dictatorship when a Statist media (NBC is all of that, having been.. RCA, then GE, MicrosoftyNBC, then Comcast owned overall corporatists neo-socialist international corporatists who lickspittle to the leftist admin).
To wit: check with expat Venezuelans to understand that chavez et al controlled all media, all media to the moron voters of marxist one party persuasion, who were against the “ownership” class at every turn. Who seized private farmer’s properties at the force of a junta military. Just like... Zimbabwe, Nicaragua, and ... Cuba.
The sharpton,jackson obamaumao meme is not holding up in face of actual facts. In a more developed media/Statist partnership, Z would not have had a trial, and they would have televised his lynching. Good marxists all. It is appalling.
OK so the key element was acting with malice— got that. But how about a media that materially altered publicly available tapes to influence justice and a locally selected jury. This would be.. what? Not malice, but they first said they didn’t alter then they did— so perjury.
Gotta say that Z is not without flaw, but a citizen is due fair treatment. How different is this than if by some cultural reversal NBC “edited” the facts of a black on white shooting (which all media has been suppressing reportage of, for sometime). This is a litmus strip test of what is happening in the “ruling” media elites and their “consensus” agenda that is NOT the law or the facts. For tv ratings?
