Am I the only one who's noticed that many of the people wailing about this judges decision are the same people who point to a judge's decision to argue that Zimmerman was not guilty of committing any crime?
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
But then, I think there is some discussion to be done here. I have to disagree that Zimmerman 'made himself' a public figure. It was Holder that brought him into the limelight, and like most naïve innocent people who have been accused, he chose to cooperate with authorities and also to try to make amends with the Martin family. Of course this was all public. But, IMO, I don't agree that it made him a 'public figure' for the purpose of denying him the right not to be defamed by the media.

Moderator's Warning: Before this thread gets derailed I just want to let people know that this thread is NOT about the Zimmerman/Trayvon case. This thread is about Zimmermans libel suit. If it goes into the other case you will be infracted and booted from the thread.

And in accordance with the rules, I also expressed an opinion in regards to the topic, which was to her repeatedly flawed rulings being a reason why she shouldn't be on the bench.
You on the other hand appeared to be full of angst in your voiced opinion simply because the news was shared which also fits the alternative definition of angst as it was over a trivial matter.
