  • ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The firm hired to provide to security for George Zimmerman and his family while he awaited trial for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin has reached a settlement with the former neighborhood watch volunteer and his attorney.

    CMR Associates settled a lawsuit against Zimmerman, his wife Shellie and attorney Mark O'Mara last week.

    Under the settlement, CMR Associates will be paid $30,000.

    The private investigation firm claimed they were owed $27,000, plus interest for past-due invoices, for their work in providing security for Zimmerman and his family while he awaited trial in 2012.

    Zimmerman was acquitted last July of any crime for the shooting of 17-year-old Martin.

    The firm says it provided a two-man detail around the clock to Zimmerman and his family members in the summer of 2012.
