By: / April 5, 2013

New development in the Trayvon Martin case. The family of the slain teen reached a settlement with the housing subdivision where Martin was killed last year.

The family has reportedly settled the wrongful-death suit for more than $1 million with the homeowners association in Sanford, FL, where Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was a Neighborhood Watch volunteer for the community when he encountered Martin walking home on Feb. 26, 2012.

The Trayvon Martin case is far from over, as the family lawyer plans to file suit against Zimmerman as well. Zimmerman is still facing criminal charges, and the trial is set to begin in July.
