9. Zimmerman Sues NBC For Defamation of Character
This past December, George Zimmerman filed a law suit against NBC for its editing of the now infamous 9-1-1 tape, claiming it made him sound like a "racist and predatory villain." He is suing for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and seeks unspecified damages as well as a trial by jury. Considering Zimmerman's past financial woes during this case, we wonder if this is mere coincidence.
