The Florida Civil Rights Association wants Gov. Rick Scott to remove State Attorney Angela Corey from a controversial shooting case in Jacksonville.
"A new special prosecutor is needed to suppress racial tension created in the failed prosecution by Corey and her staff that led to a NOT GUILTY verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial of Trayvon Martin," FCRA President J. Willie David, III, wrote in a letter on Wednesday.
Corey served as special prosecutor in the high-profile Zimmerman case.
Zimmerman's acquittal this month touched off racially charged protests around the country.
In the Jacksonville case, Michael Dunn, a white man, is accused in the shooting death of Jordan Davis, an unarmed black teenager.
