The parents of Trayvon Martin, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, have settled their wrongful death claim against the homeowners association of the Sanford subdivision where Trayvon was murdered, for a reported $1 Million.
A portion of the settlement read,
"It is understood and agreed that the payment made herein is not to be construed as an admission of any liability by or on behalf of the releasing parties; but instead the monies being paid hereunder is consideration for avoiding litigation, the uncertainties stemming from litigation as well as to protect and secure the good name and good will of the released parties."
Under the terms of the agreement, Trayvon's parents, will not take further action against the homeowner's association regarding Trayvon's death; however, but settlement specifically states that George Zimmerman is not included in agreement. That clause will allow the parents to to take legal action against George in the future.
Though the actual settlement amount was marked out, it is believe to be in the $1 Million range because that figure was first offered, and rejected, by the parents back in February.
