Zimmerman suing NBC Universal for defamation

SANFORD, FL (WFLX) - Thursday a judge threw out part of a lawsuit George Zimmerman filed against NBC Universal. Zimmerman claims the network defamed him in 2012 when it edited his 911 call to police.

He says NBC made him sound like he was racist. The case had been postponed pending the conclusion of the Trayvon Martin shooting case.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder last July.
