The George Zimmerman case may have been decided, but the ramifications of that decision continue to reverberate. Following the jury’s acquittal of George Zimmerman for second degree murder in the shooting of Travyon Martin, a former employee at the Florida State Attorney’s office has indicated that he will be filing a whistleblower suit against George Zimmerman’s prosecutors.
