George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin in 2012 and his lawyer has filed a $100 million lawsuit against prosecutors, Trayvon Martin’s family, and a book publisher over allegations that one of the trial’s key witnesses was “an imposter.”
Larry Klayman, Zimmerman’s civil attorney filed this multi-million lawsuit in Polk County Circuit Court in Florida.
This 36-page lawsuit, where Zimmerman is the only plaintiff, that Trayvon’s parents Sybrina Ford and Tracy Martin as well as their attorney Ben Crump falsely inserted Rachel Jeantel into the case after the Sanford Police Department closed the investigation in March 2012 as “self-defense.”
“Defendants, each and every one of them, as individuals and through their employment and agencies, have worked in concert to deprive Zimmerman of his constitutional and other related legal rights,” according to the lawsuit.
Klayman, who founded the nonprofit watchdog organization Judicial Watch, alleges that Jeantel’s half-sister Brittany Diamond Eugene was actually on the phone with Martin during the deadly encounter and later “coached” Jeantel on how to testify, according to the lawsuit.
He also stated that allegations partly stem from newly discovered evidence in the upcoming film “The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America” from director Joel Gilbert.
Eugene’s lawyer vehemently denies the claims that she acted in concert to coerce Jeantel to act as a stand-in witness.
“She doesn’t know Trayvon Martin. She doesn’t know Rachel Jeantel. She’s not the half-sister. She knows nothing about this case at all. She didn’t write any letters. She didn’t do anything,” Vereen told ABC News.
