The Orlando Sentinel is reporting today that Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, have settled their wrongful death case against the Homeowner’s Association for more than $1 million.
The parties are settling the matter to avoid litigation without admitting responsibility and the terms of the settlement agreement are subject to a non-disclosure agreement.
Trayvon’s parents still intend to sue George Zimmerman separately.
The settlement agreement should not have any effect on the criminal case but it does indicate that the HOA has little confidence in the viability of the GZ’s claim of self-defense.
Of course, we already knew that from our review of the evidence and the defense team’s decision to abandon an immunity hearing.
Congratulations to Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin!
This will not bring back Trayvon, but it’s an important achievement and milestone in the long road seeking justice for Trayvon.
H/T to Benjamin Crump: Well done, sir.
