Trayvon Martin: Couple who fled home after Spike Lee tweet hires Morgan firm

A couple who say they were forced to leave their home after director Spike Lee retweeted their address to his Twitter followers has hired the Morgan & Morgan law firm to represent them.

"At this point, they have retained us to protect their interests" and their safety, attorney Matt Morgan said of Elaine and David McClain, an elderly Sanford couple in their 70s.

The couple's address was tweeted by a man who thought he had uncovered the address of George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch coordinator who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month.

The problem is, the address does not belong to Zimmerman but to the McClains, who have a son named William George Zimmerman who lived there in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida.

He is no relation to George Zimmerman, 28, who killed Trayvon on Feb. 26, sparking national outrage and international interest. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense and has not been arrested.

After Lee's retweet, the couple's other son says, the McClains have been forced to flee their home and live in a hotel given the rapidly spreading threats of violence against the real Zimmerman.

"At this point, they've had to move out of their home and their lives have been upended," Morgan said.

Morgan declined Wednesday to discuss any possible future litigation on the couple's behalf.

"The first thing they're hoping for is an apology and a retraction by Spike Lee," Morgan said, adding that the couple hope their story can help "heal the divide between the white and black community."

About 10 p.m. Wednesday, Lee tweeted his regrets.

"I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain's In Peace. Justice In Court," Lee wrote.

George Zimmerman is in hiding as the racially charged controversy grows. The New Black Panther Party recently announced a $10,000 bounty for his capture.

I've read that Lee got the address from an individual in Los Angeles who had already tweeted it. Have measures been taken against him?

The original tweeter from whom Lee got the address was one Marcus D. Higgins.
