Jay Z and Weinstein won the rights to “Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It” and “Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin.”

According to reports, “Suspicion Nation” is written by Lisa Bloom and details her experience while covering the Martin trial for the NBC network. Bloom points out mistakes made by prosecutors that inevitably made them lose the case.
