Family of Trayvon Martin’s Reportedly Settles Wrongful Death Claim Against Subdivision’s Homeowners Association Where Geroge Zimmerman was Neighborhood Watch Volunteer


Settlement with the home owners association in wrongful death claim in death of Trayvone Martin.

As reported at the LA Times, the family of Trayvon Martin has reached a settlement in the wrongful death civil suit of their son with the subdivision’s homeowners association. Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch volunteer at the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhomes in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012. Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder, meanwhile he is claiming self defense.  According to the Orlando Sentinel, the  settlement amount is believed to be worth more than $1 million. The settlement paperwork filed at the Seminole County Courthouse, a portion of which was made public Friday, had the settlement amount blacked out and the parties agreed to keep the amount confidential. In the settlement, the home owners association did not admit any wrongdoing or liability and Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, and his estate agreed to set aside their wrongful-death claim and claims for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and expenses.

The family of Trayvon Martin, the teen who was shot dead by a Neighborhood Watch volunteer last year in an Orlando, Fla., suburb, appears to have settled a civil suit claiming wrongful death against the subdivision’s homeowners association.

Citing Seminole County court records, the Orlando Sentinel reported on Friday that the settlement could total $1 million or more. A few pages of the document were made available to the public, but the amount of the settlement was blacked out. The agreement stipulated that those involved would keep the dollar amount private.

As part of the settlement, the homeowners association acknowledged no wrongdoing.

According to the Sentinel, the association took out a $1-million insurance policy a few weeks after the shooting. A receptionist at the office of homeowners association attorney Thomas R. Slaten Jr. said he would not answer questions.

The attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family, Benjamin Crump, stated that they intend to file a separate suit later against George Zimmerman. The settlement with the HOA spelled out that Zimmerman was not part of this deal.
