What the pundits did NOT say:
- Allegations are just that, allegations. They are neither true nor false.
- Settlements happen for ________, (you fill in the blank) often not going to the merits of the allegations.
- The parties almost always agree no one is at fault and that further blame will not be tolerated.
- The parties almost always agree they will not talk about the case.
For those who receive settlements, to talk about the case almost always has a clause that says they will receive no further payments under the terms of the settlement, and they have to pay back what they have been paid.
