Zimmerman trial jurist already has a book deal

George Zimmerman sits in Semimole circuit court during his murder trial July 10, 2013 in Sanford, Fla.

This final note on the way out today. The verdict in the George Zimmerman trial is less than 48 hours old, and the selling has already begun.

The first potential book deal's been announced. Juror B37 -- one of six women on the panel that acquitted Zimmerman Saturday night -- has signed with a book agent.

Completing the "circle of commercialization" and media coverage of the case: it seems the juror was referred to the agent by a producer at one of the morning news shows.
