Fired and Now He's preparing $100 million lawsuit
Shiping Bao was let go as an associate medical examiner in Florida's Volusia County last week, officials disclosed Tuesday. County spokesman Dave Byron declined to give a reason.
Dr. Shiping Bao, a prosecution witness in this summer’s George Zimmerman case, is slamming the state and accusing them of throwing the trial. Dr. Bao, who testified that Trayvon Martin suffered before his death is said to be preparing a lawsuit against the medical examiner, the state attorney’s office and Sanford Police Department claiming that they were biased against the teen.
Bao’s attorney, Willie Gary, recently told WFTV that they’re preparing a lawsuit and confirmed that Dr. Bao thought the entities were in cahoots and used him as a scapegoat.
“He says their general attitude was that he [the victim] got what he deserved,” said Gary.
“He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,’ “ Gary said.
“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.”
