SANFORD, Fla. (WFTV) -- A Sanford couple is suing film director Spike Lee for a second time over a tweet he sent during the investigation into the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Lee mistakenly tweeted the couple's address as the home where gunman George Zimmerman lived.

The couple said they were forced to temporarily move out of their home because they were being harassed.

They settled with Lee in 2012, but the new lawsuit claims the couple still has trouble sleeping at night.

The family said in July during Zimmerman's trial they're worried now that their address is on the blogs, someone with an extreme view of the trial would come after them.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder charges in Martin's killing.
