I hope that this will revive this forum a bit. Theconservativetreehouse and Legalinsurrection have threads about Judge Nelson's decision but the comments seem to be predictable for those outlets. By the way, I always have thought that Zimmerman has a better case against the State of Florida than NBC. We should hear soon if Mr. Beasley will appeal.
A Florida judge on Monday dismissed the defamation lawsuit filed by George Zimmerman against NBC and three reporters, saying the former neighborhood watch leader failed to show the network acted with malice.
Judge Debra Nelson said the malice standard was appropriate because Zimmerman became a public figure after he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford in February 2012, generating a national conversation about race and self-defense laws.
If you're going to stretch out your 15 minutes, I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.
