George Zimmerman is now the target of a new lawsuit by the men who were supposed to protect him and his family.

When Zimmerman walked out of the Seminole County jail, his attorney believed his client had a bounty on his head. But in a bombshell statement to Local 6, attorney Stephen Milbrath, who filed the 73-page lawsuit, claims Zimmerman does not need security.

Bodyguard Christopher Rumbaugh, whose company CMR Associates filed the lawsuit Friday, alleges Zimmerman, his wife Shellie, and attorney Mark O'Mara, owe roughly $27,000 for security work performed over the summer. In order to win the lawsuit, Rumbaugh's attorneys revealed security secrets pertaining to Zimmerman's release from jail following the Trayvon Martin shooting. The suit details sophisticated security plans, including using disguises and switching rental cars to conceal Zimmerman from paparazzi.

The suit claims Zimmerman and his wife demanded two body guards at all times -- even when security staff believed it wasn't needed.

I couldn't help but to notice that the article didn't say that MOM had already paid them 40k or that they acknowledged receiving the same 40k.

I couldn't decide whether to put this in Media Bias or not.  o_O

It sounds like Zimmerman may have a counter-claim for  revealing confidential information.

This seems very unprofessional and unethical. It appears they did not event try more discrete and professional means of informing their client and obtaining payment due. I would not trust this so-called security firm if I were in the market for such services.
