I think that's the key here. If he named players specifically, they'd have a suit. They might try the "emotional distress" angle in the hopes of forcing some sort of settlement.

That is why the attorney took that lawsuit, obviously.

However, I wonder if that could fact could be admitted into evidence at a trial for the jury to consider..

Anyone?

NBC and CBS have very deep pockets for lawsuits .
She will have to prove her damages; that those remarks about her hairsytle and ways of making a living really "ruined" her.

that she couldn't sleep at night, woke up every morning and vomited, and so on.

Once when I wanted to file suit against a company that had done me very wrong [rhymes with Ourethics Endz] I was rightly advised that they had MUCH more "Fuck you" money available than I had.
Big corporations are often found with rafts of attorneys on retainer.

Sometimes they will offer to settle for a paltry sum what they consider to be "nuisance" claims not worth the trouble.

Should they dig their heels in, their lawyers can easily "motion" you to death in Court.

They can clean out or financially exhaust small adversaries by using the legal system of lawyers fees and court costs to make claims go away.

You might be rather surprised about what I thought about the judgment of people who purchased 1987 190E 2.3 16v sedans...

Who knows, she might draw the "dry cleaner pants" judge and win $67.3 million.

Is it now illegal to call her a nasty-assed skank, too?

That guy lost the case, he didn't win anything.
The latest is that he plans an appeal, even after the cleaners said they would drop the countersuit to get their $84,000 lawyer's costs back.
The guy incidentally is a judge, and he lost his job over the case.

She garnered more exposure from Imus's babbling than she did on the court. The whole team got it, who won the Championship game?
I believe she liked the media attention. Now there'll be more for her.

I smell a book deal, heck maybe even a movie, poor thing!

Good. It is pretty bad when a Judge goes off the rails.

Why are you being so politically correct about this Bruce R.?

You didn't mention, he was a BLACK judge.

Why aren't Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson all over this like a cheap suit in the rain?

That is the "dry cleaner pants" judge Gregs300CD was referring to.
