SANFORD - Trayvon Martin's parents have settled a wrongful death claim for an amount believed to be more than $1 million against the homeowners association of the Sanford subdivision where their teenage son was killed.
Their attorney, Benjamin Crump, filed that paperwork at the Seminole County Courthouse, a portion of which was made public today.

Wow. Did you intend to start a flame war?
I see many people were kind enough to inform you of what you surely already knew. And that is NO LIMIT was his self-described gang name. So why were you claiming racism?
But your comments about if this happened to a child of ours and therefore our opinion might be different is also - well - just stupid.
Are you trying to insult the average FReeper by comparing us to the Martin parents? This could NOT have happened to us unless we were as they are.
Zot? Are you like Sakic (post 23) and do not know that NO LIMIT NIGGA was his self described gang name? See the replies to post 23 and ease off the zot call.
You can bet their shyster lawyer will already have taken the full amount and has his hand out for more.
making money off of the death of your child.... gross, and that goes double for the blood sucking lawyer.
This is setting the stage for every thug in America, at their parents’ behest, to target apartment complexes.
low information posters —
Lawsuits are the way of the land. For all races. Get rid of the lawyers.
It's not racist to dig and publish what you find. Rather, it informs the debate by bringing the actors into sharper focus.
This is from #157 posted on 03/30/2012 8:30:39 PM PDT (the links are likely scrubbed by now I didn't bother to check):
As it happens, I found a Google cache of Trayvon Martin's Twitter account, @NO_LIMIT_NIGGA.
Martin used this photo as his Twitter page background:
That's the mugshot of rapper Corey Miller, aka C-Murder, who is doing life without parole for beating up and shooting to death 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2002 at a night club in Harvey, Louisiana. Quite the role model for an up and coming wannabe gang banger, don't you think?
Martin's Twitter account handle was NO_LIMIT_NIGGA. He listed his name as SLIMM, his location as YO HOE CRIB, and his favorite website as LIES.COM. Dude liked caps!
And it is for sure the right fellow's account. It contained a birthday greeting from the lovely and charming EatYhurBrainz, aka Kia (whose ballistic background pic would have pleased Doc Edgerton). Kia turns out to attend the same high school as Martin. And her greeting would have been sent on the evening of 5 February. Martin was born on 5 February 1995.
Martin's Twitter handle likely derives from his hero's record label, No Limit Records.
When I read comments like this I cant help but wonder if there are plants here.
Into conspiracies, are we?
parents being upset that their son is dead is not a criminal act nor something to be laughed at
If you are looking for something that's not a laughing matter, I suggest you focus on the effort to bring the weight of the State down on an innocent man to further a left-wing political agenda (and hopefully advance one's own fame and fortune how much of the million sticks to Crump?).
But don't let facts get in the way of your crusade against "racism."
I expect an immediate apology from you for your dishonest and slimy accusations. They are beneath contempt.
I am not insulting the average Freeper. I am insulting the ones who post blatantly racist statements. That you are more offended by my pointing it out than the idiots who post Cadillac and other idiotic comments is odd to me.
It is okay to flame an ahole. In fact, it’s an obligation.
It is fine to think Zimmerman has been railroaded and that he is a victim. It is not fine to take that point of view and then spout stupidity. Those making these kinds of statements are closer to being a David Duke conservative than a true conservative.
But I don’t know all the facts. Good one.
You DON'T know all the facts. That's just it. Yet you are doubling down on calling FReeprs ignorant and racist. A FReeper since 1999 notwithstnding - you are a total tool today.
believed by whom???
Crump's bargaining position was/is collapsing right in front of everybody. Who would pay him anything given how desperate this case is???
That being said this settlement may have been necessary for him to raise enough money to now pay his lawyers.
That’ll buy a lot of Skittles and Ice Tea
.......and a gold tooth.
