You do wonder.
I am no expert in the U.S. legal system, what little I do know of it I find third-world and horrific, but in my mind an allegation of this nature that starts life in the civil, rather than criminal, court suspicious.
I make no judgment on the veracity of the accusations. There are a number of legitimate reasons why someone would wait nearly 60 years to come forward.
Having said that, there is no fairness in coming forward with something like this and expect the accused to defend himself so many years later. I suspect nothing will be proved but the suspicion will linger forever.
......and she's chosen to seek pecuniary recompense via the civil courts rather than going to the cops.
If this is true it's horrible and Mr Zimmerman should suffer for it.
But the first steps make me a bit suss.
She's waited 56 years........
Oh no, that's the sort of headline I dread. Please let it be false.
