    Thanks for the clarification, I was kinda confused by all of it.

    I'm sure some think money = justice (somehow), though. Guess his family just wanted some money out of it.

    Fair enough I read it wrong.
    That said, I guess OJ was really innocent and Nicole's parents are just money grubbers?

    Nicole's parents didn't sue the restaurant where Nicole left her sunglasses, the maker of the gloves that OJ wore or the construction company that made the sidewalk where they were killed. They sued OJ. Big difference.

    Wasn't he on duty as the community watchman or whatever? That would make whatever entity he working for, volunteer or not, liable for what he does on duty. I would assume he was working for, and therefore on behalf of, the homeowners association. As such, they become liable.

    Basically what I'm saying is, I didn't realize OJ had so many jobs.

    Community watch isn't a scheduled duty or a job. It is a community volunteer group. Unless they do it differently from what I have experienced, it is simply community members who watch out for each other and help keep tabs on each other's property, when someone is on vacation, etc. If I remember correctly, Zimmerman made the initial call to 9-1-1 from his home, but I could be wrong on that.

    Either way, he is responsible for his own actions. Going after the homeowners association of the community that he lived in is a money grab.

    Not if it's a homeowners association position. Wasn't it a gated community? That makes me think the association sanctioned his position as community watchman.
    What you're describing is a community watch. There are no real positions in a community watch, so to describe him as the papers have makes no sense.
    If it's an association sanctioned position, volunteer or otherwise, and he was on duty acting on their behalf, they are liable. If they aren't, then it's going to get thrown out pretty quick. Frankly, I doubt they could find a lawyer if he wasn't working on their behalf.

    He wasn't an employee of the homeowners association. In the article by HuffPost it says he was a volunteer neighborhood watchman. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3022300.html

    Also I found info that says Zimmerman was in his vehicle on a personal errand when he first saw Martin so he wasn't even "on duty" for the neighborhood watch (if they had a duty list).
    on the night of February 26th, he was going to Target to shop for groceries, when he spotted the teen, who he said “looked suspicious.”

    Volunteer means nothing.
    The fact he wasn't on duty does.
    We're talking about a homeowner association for a gated community. You don't think they oversee the community watch? They just randomly allow some resident to call himself the community watchman?
    That doesn't add up.
