    I just did, but if I said what I'm thinking I may be banned for being politically incorrect

    If he's a real man of faith, he will donate all the proceeds from the lawsuit to charity and trust his god will reward him beyond measures. Isn't there some line in the Bible about being rewarded fourfold?
    Actually Jesus taught that it better to settle then go to court, so this guy is being obedient to Christ

    "Settling" is not "losing." Perhaps they thought they could get a worse deal by going to trial, in which case such a low settlement means a win for the government.

    Or perhaps the plaintiff thought he would do worse by going to trial, in which case such a high settlement means a win for the plaintiff.

    The point of settlements is that neither party can be said to have won or lost. The terms do not apply.

    His employer did not think any such thing. You do not know what a "crime" is, apparently.

    Furthermore, though you quoted my post, you addressed nothing in it. Instead, you deflected - another form of dishonesty.

    Yes, or so You Tube suggests when I looked up the plaintiff's name. I did not watch any, however. But that was also my understanding from the OP.

    You do not need to have a hearing of any kind prior to settlement.

    And apparently, while you may have personal experience with the mechanics of a lawsuit, you do not seem, from your words, to understand how and why they work, or what (if anything) they mean.

    That is for both parties, not just the defendant.

    Lefties have set the rules in such a way that they can never lose or be wrong. You can bet your fat fucking ass they'll claim victory when any settlements go their way.

    Like you righties will claim victory when any settlements go your way - like the OP did, for instance.

    If you think left-right has anything to do with this, or how lawsuits work, you are crazy.
