(CNN) - On Monday, a Florida judge rejected George Zimmerman’s suit seeking damages from NBC.

Zimmerman filed the suit two years ago, accusing the network of falsely portraying him as a racist in a series of broadcasts shortly after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, 17.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that Zimmerman is entitled to no money from the media giant.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in 2013.
