George Zimmerman appeals NBC ruling in defamation case

George Zimmerman has appealed on a court ruling stating in clear terms that NBC played no role whatsoever in defaming him and there was no such intention when his 911 call, which he made right before his scuffle with Trayvon Martin, was aired. The Seminole County Clerk of Courts has some records which date to Tuesday, July 22 and according to these records, a notice of appeal in the civil case can be derived.

Back in June, Judge Debra Neson;s ruling went in favor of NBC and it said that Zimmerman was recognized as a public figure when the report of NBC was issued and the "actual malice" had to be proven. The lawsuit by Zimmerman was filed back in December 2012 following the event of NBC airing an edited version of his call to 911. The emergency call was made before Zimmerman got into a very deadly confrontation with 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and currently there are no charges against Zimmerman against the death of Martin.

The actual contents of the 911 were as follows;

George Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining, and he's just walking around, looking about.

911 Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

However, the NBC trimmed a portion and aired the call which had Zimmerman saying “This guy looks like he's up to no good …He looks black.”
