Zimmerman slaps Buttigieg and Warren with massive $265 M lawsuit

George Zimmerman files a $265 million lawsuit seeking damages for loss of goodwill and reputation against Democratic presidential hopefuls Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) and former South Bend In., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D). 

According to Fox News, Larry Klayman, Zimmerman's lawyer, filed this lawsuit on Tuesday at the Circuit Court for the 10th Judicial Circuit in Polk County, Florida. 

The lawsuit holds Warren and Buttigieg responsible for "maliciously defaming his [Zimmerman] character" by using the highly publicized killing of Trayvon Martin "as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers." 


His announcement highlights quite a list of details that explain the reasons why there was a need to file a case. Buttigieg and Warren are facing actual accusations of "malice", also holding them responsible of using the race card in their usage of Zimmerman's trial despite being acquitted from Martin's case. They did this in order to gain popularity among their African-American voters. 

According to WorldNetDaily, Klayman stated in the lawsuit announcement that "The obvious intent of Buttigieg and Warren's tweets is alleged race-baiting, in an attempt to draw African American votes during this Democrat presidential primary season." 

Klayman implicates that this "despicable race tactics" are affecting Zimmerman in such a personal level and has caused hostility in the racial division among Black and White Americans, who in his words, are all brothers. 


The lawsuit includes specific incidents that justify the lawsuit. On Trayon Martin's 25th birthday, Buttigieg acknowledges his death as an example of "white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice and fear." 

Warren tweets a similar quote, saying "We need to end gun violence and racism".
