Lawsuit Against George Zimmerman’s Homeowners Association

If George Zimmerman can’t be prosecuted or even arrested for murdering Trayvon Martin, the next target might be the homeowners association that hired him.

George Zimmerman was officially listed as the neighborhood watch captain of The Retreat at Twin Lakes, the Florida gated community where he shot Trayvon Martin on February 26th.

In a newsletter to residents, the homeowners association instructed residents to first call the Sanford Police Department in case of trouble, and then “please contact our Captain, George Zimmerman, so he can be aware and help address the issue with other residents.”

In other words the homeowners association gave George Zimmerman the keys to the car — without checking to see if he’s had dozens of accidents, or if he even has a driver’s license — and he crashed it.  Totaled it.

A Florida real estate attorney said The Retreat at Twin Lakes is “stuck” if they get sued:

“So, if you’re going to send out a newsletter saying, `Hey, he is the captain. Whatever he says goes,’ you have now basically rented a free police officer for your neighborhood.  He certainly took on that role with the homeowners association, and it seems to me that they recognized that.”

George Zimmerman might be able to hide behind Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, but the homeowners association won’t be able to.  They made their bed, and now they might have to lie in it.

Why do ALEC and the Koch brothers want to kill us all? Why don't those "turrist" hating Rushpubliscum politicians stand up and DEMAND an attack on the NRA, America's largest terror group?

The Complex can still save itself, if they can prove that what Zimmerman did was beyond what he was trained and/or Authorized to do.

Now all they would have to do is also prove they thought this guy is level headed.

Otherwise it turns from one big judgement to a smaller settlement

I hope at some point we get some definitive word on what Zimmerman's status was. I've read or heard he was self-appointed and acted on his own. Then I heard he was a volunteer and recognized as such. Then I started hearing Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch No. 2 and the guy who claimed he saw Zimmerman pinned to the ground with Martin beating him was the head of it.

Zimmerman was obviously a plant receiving his orders from Moscow.

JR: That would be nice if Rushpubliscums would stand up to the Kochsuckers, ALEC and the NRA. Never happen though.

Erik: I think the complex would have a hard time proving that Zimmerman went beyond his authority. This could end up just like all those famous cases where a crooked cop is kept on the force while the police department and the city pay out millions of dollars in lawsuits.

SW: That's true, the reports seem to contradict each other. But that newsletter from the homeowners association, assuming it's valid, should be enough to paint them into a corner.

Randal: Thanks for the earworm.

Lisa, you stupid cow, you are supposed to chew your cud, not spit it out.

I knew you'd eventually don your white sheet. Speaking for myself, I've had it with your not-so-subtle attempt to "prove" that that damn gangsta brought it on himself because.... well shit, just LOOK at all those OTHER damn darkies and what THEY'VE been doing!

Just because your parents are brother and sister doesn't make me automatically assume that ALL white people are the products of incestuous liaisons. Maybe you ought to take a bit more tolerant approach too, instead of smelling everything Hannity farts and calling it cologne.

There's a lot more going on here than we know. The new DA, Angela "Hang Em High" Corey is notorious for putting folks in jail for even the smallest infractions. In this case, she didn't call a grand jury which means Zimm can't be charged with first degree murder.
Here's the deal. The neighborhood watch group did exactly as they were instructed to do by the police. Police departments nation-wide have neighborhood watch literature that gives homeowner associations explicit instructions on how to form and operate a neighborhood watch program. Zimm's association followed the rules. So, who is liable, the association on the police? Zimm even had a police-issued concealed weapon permit. And, just because Martin didn't have a criminal record doesn't mean he wasn't a punk. Doubtful he was the angelic little boy he's been made out to be. Stay tuned.

Oh JR why aren't you out with the Black Panthers carrying signs saying"Kill Zimmerman" or at eh OWS with signs saying "Kill The Rich"

You know because we can really use more people who contribute to civil discourse.

What I am doing is merely bringing up something that has been purposely censored by your buddies at the MSNBC White House..

I see your wet dream got popped, Lisa. Are you wearing widow garb? Are you misspelling some signs to hold up at the next "Save Zimmerman" rally that you and your cross-burning pals are planning?

There have been very few questions about the HOA, and it's responsibilites in the situation. For me this was one of the most bizarre aspects of the case. The homeowners themselves are on the hook for damages. They had absolutely no authority to appoint, renter, Zimmerman to anything. The other "residents" they speak of in the newsletter are renters, over whom the have ZERO authority. This appointment was allow Zimmerman(the renter) to address issues to other renters. As far as the HOA is concerned they issues were to be addressed to the landlord who in turn address the renters. This was their way to get around the law/rules. Zimmerman had nor could he be given any authority to address winners. Neighborhood Watch is a crime watch program. It does not have the authority to enforce HOA rules. I hope the sneaks get sued by George as well as others for this bogus bs.
