Civil Lawsuits Against Michael Dunn Settled
Congratulations to the parents of Jordan Davis and others who were in the vehicle with Jordan when Michael Dunn opened fire.
Blackbutterfly7 extends our thanks to John Phillips for his statement on this matter. It dispels the misrepresentation by some who omitted the word “stipulation” when saying that the civil lawsuit against Michael Dunn was dismissed.
Attorney John Phillips sent a text to News4: “We made an offer to settle both cases against Michael Dunn – 1) the estate of Jordan Davis’ case and 2) the case of two boys we represent. They accepted the offer in full. We cannot disclose the offer at this time, but it resolved all civil suits in principle.”
Jordan Davis’ parents filed a civil suit against Dunn in January of 2013. The lawsuit for wrongful death alleged that Dunn and his lawyers made several defamatory claims against Jordan and his friends. Among those defamatory claims were that Davis and his friends had a gun; belonged to a gang, and destroyed physical evidence that proves Dunn’s innocence. Davis’ family said they wanted to restore their son’s reputation.
Michael Dunn’s criminal trial is scheduled to start on February 3. He is currently held in jail without bond.
