Trayvon Martin’s Family Might Sue Homeowner’s Association

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Even if George Zimmerman is convicted of some charge regarding the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, he might not be the most lucrative target for the Martin family. A more likely target would be the homeowner association, which more or less “hired” Zimmerman as a free private police officer.

“It’s almost like if you give your son the keys to a brand new Corvette when he turns 16,” said Roberto Blanch, a South Florida attorney, “You may be seen as enabling the occurrence or the loss.”

Zimmerman was definitely recognized and endorsed by the association. In a newsletter, under a heading called “Neighborhood Watch,” the message recommended residents call police, and then “please contact our Captain, George Zimmerman … so he can be aware and help address the issue with other residents.”

This relationship to Zimmerman follows an increasing series of burglaries in the area, making him welcome by many.

Since he started working there, police dispatchers have received 46 calls from him since 2004

If the Martin family succeeds in a suit against the homeowners, the neighborhood association won’t have deep pockets with which to pay. The reserves of such organizations cover typically no more than $1 million. The townhouse complex will have to increase fees to each of the residents.

The Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners association has made no comment.
