VICTORY: No Book Deal for Zimmerman Juror

Zimmerman_big

In the wake of the “not guilty” verdict for George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, one juror announced that she’d signed with Martin Literary Management to write a book detailing the trial. Progressives all over the country were outraged that jury members might profit from Zimmerman’s acquittal. That’s why MoveOn member Barbara Graham created a Petition to Martin Literary Management, asking them to take back the book deal. After the petition gathered more than 18,000 signatures, echoing the public outcry on social media, Sharlene Martin, the management company’s owner, wrote Barbara to let her know that she’d terminated the offer, admitting that she made a “grave error in judgment” when she agreed to represent the juror’s story.
