George Zimmerman Sues Family of Trayvon Martin for $100 Million.

Zimmerman is also suing the Martin family attorney, Ben Crump, as well as others.

The former neighborhood watch volunteer claims he's been victimized since he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in 2012.

Zimmerman's lawyer claims that a book published by Crump in October constitutes defamation because it implicates Zimmerman in the "genocide of colored people.".

Crump has called the lawsuit "unfounded and reckless," saying it's "a shameless attempt to profit off the lives and grief of others." .

This plaintiff continues to display a callous disregard for everyone but himself, re-victimizing individuals whose lives were shattered by his own misguided actions, Ben Crump, Attorney for the Martin Family, via 'USA Today'.

Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon.

The killing occurred in a Central Florida neighborhood.

Zimmerman shot the unarmed teenager following a confrontation.

His claim of self-defense was found credible by a Florida jury.

Zimmerman has become increasingly controversial.

He auctioned the gun he used to kill Trayvon on eBay, and has had several run-ins with the law
