Zimmerman rejected leads top 5 Florida trending stories

A judge in central Florida has dismissed the defamation lawsuit filed by George Zimmerman against NBC and three reporters. The judge said the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer failed to show that the network acted with malice. Zimmerman was acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of Miami teenager Trayvon Martin. In the lawsuit, he said NBC’s editing of a story made it sound as if Zimmerman voluntarily told an operator that Martin was black. He was actually responding to a dispatcher’s question.
