SANFORD, Fla. The people who could end up paying the financial price for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin are, ultimately, the homeowners of the Retreat at Twin Lakes development, say specialists who deal with homeowners associations.
If George Zimmerman, their crime watch program captain, is charged with and convicted of killing Martin, the community's association and property management company probably will be sued by the victim's family over the way the program was established and operated, said Donna Berger, a lawyer who specializes in homeowners association law.
"They may wind up getting sued and getting hit with hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and damages," Berger said. "Who will pay is every member of the association, and they will have to make special assessments.... It's a cautionary tale for other associations."
Even if Zimmerman is never charged, the association could be sued. But the plaintiffs' case would be easier if he were convicted.

I call BS. I am in a business involving HOAs and HOAs almost univerally carry D&O and liability insurance. The insurance company will take the hit. Their premiums will probably increase for awhile after but it is not going to be a killer.
Hey, since we are playing “what if” in this stupid article, what if Martin deserved to be shot, and all this conjecture and hate is being spewed at an innocent man and a responsible group of homeowners? Who gets sued then?
Is there any far-fetched, conjecture based angle these slimeball “journalists” haven’t covered that poisons the atmosphere? What color was that Kel-Tec? Black? Oh, the horror!
I thought he was “self appointed”.
Seems like a real hard case to make that he was acting as an some kind of official agent.
Zimmerman should sue NBC now for the fake story they ran.
Muddy the waters with civil suits.
Every American should sue the mainstream media propagandists.
They have helped ignite a racial war, have put every white, Hispanic and Jewish American in danger, and have overlooked the Black Pampers’ “Dead or Alive” ADVERTISEMENT for a paid assassin.
The liberal media is COMPLICIT in any further violence against whites, Hispanics and Jews.
If he had a son he would like like Trayvon. Is he saying he shacked up with Trayvons mother?
No, more likely he shacked up with Trayvon’s father.
