Attorneys for former neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman will argue for the right to subpoena the social media accounts of Trayvon Martin and also ask for more time.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- George Zimmerman is considering a defamation lawsuit against NBC over its reports about a phone call he made to dispatchers moments before he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman's attorney said Thursday that the former neighborhood watch captain has contacted another lawyer about possibly filing a lawsuit.
Each of the reports on either "Today" or NBC's Miami station involve editing of Zimmerman's phone call to a dispatcher that emphasizes his identification of Martin as a black male.
Three employees of NBC or the NBC-owned station lost their jobs because of the editing changes.
NBC spokeswoman Megan Kopf says the network isn't commenting
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder but has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
A delay in Zimmerman's arrest led to protests nationwide.
