It's Florio.

If no charges come against Ben, he should sue guys like Florio for defamation & damages- these sort of articles are not reporting facts, they are casting doubt..

"Report: Roethlisberger's accuser declines interview
Posted by Mike Florio on March 24, 2010 7:44 PM ET
On Tuesday, the news that police have dropped a request for an DNA sample from Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was regarded as an indication that full exoneration is coming. There's been another development that points more directly to the possible collapse of the case.

According to KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, the alleged victim has declined to be re-interviewed by authorities.

Unless the alleged victim, who has retained private counsel, has opted to focus only on a civil claim, the move makes no sense. And even if she plans to focus on the civil claim, a viable criminal case provides a high degree of leverage.

Then there's the possibility that there has been a secret and confidential settlement, and that the deal specifically required her to no longer cooperate with the criminal investigation."

Why add the last bit, if not to just keep a shadow on Ben?

A secret settlement?? Does this sound like someone who would settle over something like this? When they (Ben and his legal team), had a chance in the civil suit they were insulted.

I agree Chadman, Florio has a sh!t stirrer about the size of Godzilla's tail. The dude is a scumbag who simply wants to add more to a story than what is really there. I don't think the girl is getting paid off, I think she probably has no case.
