I hope they never collect a dime. These scummy scam artists - along with the Crumpettes and the media - should be paying Mr. Zimmerman for damages they caused him.
They are going to fight over who will get the most and it all will be gone in a month anyway.
I don’t see how the homeowner’s association could be liable for this. But our screwed up legal system allows a shakedown to avoid legal fees.
It will all be gone in months, if not weeks.
um... what the heck did the HOA have to do with anything?
Young punk attacks innocent man and gets what he deserves.. how does that involve the HOA?
The lawyer should be shot, then drawn and quartered and his intestines strung out over the court house steps.
It may well be that due to the immunity laws the settlement amount is zero dollars and they are doing this agreement stunt to IMPLY something for a bigger agenda.
IOW the law firm is setting this up for an intimidation tool.
I doubt very much it exceeded anything significant.
It is like the hot coffee case, the 2 million dollar verdict made news but the subsequent overturning on appeal/settlement for 200k which went to the lawyers is never reported.
As usual with today’s so-called “reporting” one has to read between the lines. Nowhere is the settlement amount actually disclosed. The reporter wants you to believe, as well as the lawyer, that the settlement is for a million... or maybe more; but it could be $10k. This is all legal theater.
On the good side, the $1M will be worth a couple of weekends, with lots of drugs, partying, alcolol, and phat-ass sex...then it will be gone! Time for a new shakedown victim.
Don’t get this at all. The amount seems a bit excessive for a make it go away settlement, even with the race card seasoning. Were the insurance companies using MSM manufactured “evidence?”
Of course I remember the OJ trial and later civil suit, but still when it all comes out the wash, GZ will own some insurance companies.
See! Now isn’t it a lot easier to just scam the system than trying to hit the Powerball? Cheaper too!
I wonder who will get the largest cut. “Mom”, “Pop” or their shyster lawyer.
Ah, wouldn’t you wait, if you were representing the HOA, until the criminal trial was settled as it is quite possible the self avowed “gangsta, nigga” was the guilty party and ZERO dollars needed to be paid out?
These terrible failures as parents have been rewarded for having a son who turned out to be a thief, a violent thug and a drug dealer.
They did not raise him correctly or teach him values. They let him grow up to be a violent, punk criminal. They didn’t even know he was missing until over a day after he died.
And now for producing a violent parasite on society they have been given possibly one million dollars.
Why would the HOA insurance company settle with these schemers at a time when their whole scheme is falling apart????
