Sybrina Fulton filed paperwork last week to jumpstart a lawsuit against the insurance company for the Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners association, seeking monetary damages in the death of her 17-year-old son within the gates of the townhome community.
In the documents, Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America is seeking clarification of its responsibilities in Trayvon’s and requested the judge to strike down any chance of the company having liability in the case.

According to a report from the Orlando Sentinel, Travelers is asking the court for defense against paying monies to the Martin family and to rule that the company “has no duty to defend The Retreat at Twin Lakes,” according to the filing. While the courts are not releasing the amount of damages sought by Fulton, Travelers’ documents reveal that the amount exceeds $75,000.
Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump said that while Travyon’s parents are committed to seeking justice for their son, he also feels that his office should pursue the claims against other entities that could be responsible as well.
