Zimmerman may still end up back in court. The NAACP is pushing the U.S. Department of Justice to file a civil rights suit, criminal charges for violating someone's civil rights, which are protected under federal law. Zimmerman could also face a civil suit, which allows a party to seek monetary damages against another for causing physical or emotional harm, regardless of the outcome of a criminal trial.
