Trial court rules against George Zimmerman in his libel lawsuit against NBC

The opinion, just handed down today, is Zimmerman v. Allen (Fla. Super. Ct. June 30, 2014); I’m busy with Hobby Lobby, so I can’t analyze it in detail, but I thought I’d pass it along for those who are interested. Zimmerman’s claim was that NBC incorrectly characterized and misleadingly edited parts of his 911 call. I take it that Zimmerman will appeal.
