Jordan Davis' murderer settles civil suit with his parents


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The attorney for the parents of 17-year old Jordan Davis confirmed to Channel 4 that all civil suits against Michael Dunn have been resolved.

In a text, John Phillips wrote: "We made an offer to settle both cases against Michael Dunn - 1) the estate of Jordan Davis' case and 2) the case of two boys we represent. They accepted the offer in full. We cannot disclose the offer at this time, but it resolved all civil suits in principle."

Jordan Davis' parents filed a civil suit against Dunn in January of 2013. In the lawsuit they claimed Dunn and his lawyers made several defamatory claims, including claims of Davis and his friends having a gun belonging to a gang or destroying any physical evidence that proves Dunn's innocence. Davis' family said they wanted to restore their son's reputation.

Dunn's criminal trial is scheduled to start on February 3. We'll continue to follow this story and bring you much more throughout the weekend.

Now - onto the Criminal Trial on February 3rd.

ETA - this guy is a real beaut! His attorney must just love him.

Dunn Quotes:
“The jail is full of blacks and they all act like thugs. This may sound a bit radical but if more people would arm themselves and kill these (expletive) idiots, when they’re threatening you, eventually they may take the hint and change their behavior.”

The fear is that we may get a predominately black jury and therefore, unlikely to get a favorable verdict. Sad, but that’s where this country is still at. The good news is that the surrounding counties are predominately white and Republican and supporters of gun rights.”

1. So why wasn't there a similar suit against Zimmerman's family and attorney?

They made dozens of false, slanderous statements about Martin (especially Zimmerman's brother)
