The saga continues as it relates to the trial of one George Zimmerman.  The latest chapter is the fact that the medical examiner from the trial is now suing the state of Florida for $100 million.

Dr. Shiping Bao has hired famed attorney, Willie Gary, to represent him in the suit.  One of Bao's most powerful accusations is the fact that he claims the medical examiner, state attorney's office, and Sanford Police Department were all biased against Trayvon Martin.

Bao's accusation is not that far fetched since a lot of people believed this to be the case from the simple fact that Zimmerman was never arrested for the murder of Martin.

Here's how WFTV is reporting the story:

Dr. Bao is dropping another bombshell -- his attorney is preparing a $100 million lawsuit.

Through his high-profile attorney, he claims the medical examiner, state attorney's office, and Sanford Police Department were all biased against Martin.

"He says their general attitude was that he got what he deserved," Attorney Willie Gary told Channel 9.

Gary said Dr. Bao was made to be a scapegoat and was wrongfully fired from the medical examiner's office. He said his client was prepared to offer proof that Martin was not the aggressor.

"He was in essence told to zip his lips. 'Shut up. Don't say those things,'" Gary said.

Gary said prosecutors never asked Dr. Bao a question crucial to their case.

"He wanted a question that would have allowed him to explain to the jury with scientific evidence how there was no way Trayvon Martin could have been on top of George Zimmerman," Gary said.

Gary said that question never came.
Side Note:
I was wondering when Willie Gary's name was going to come up.  I was wondering why Trayvon Martin's family never retained his services.  He's one of the country's best litigants and he's located in Florida.
