    McNulty pulled her settlement offer

    Sorry, can't find the link but this is out there this morning. McNulty's lawyer pulled the settlement offer of apology + 100K to a women's shelter.

    They appear to be gearing up to use this Georgia incident in their case (not that that's a surprise or anything).
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    Don;t know how that'll work, because the Georgia thing is over with. I'm sure there has already been a settlement and that all parties must keep everything confidential- 1 condition from a settlement.

    There was no confidentiality settlement in Georgia. Charges weren't filed, so 500+ pages worth of G.B.I. reports became public record.

    Need an attorney to comment on this but I don't think a settlement can be used as a shield from testifying in a civil trial brought by a third party. Additionally, police reports are in the public domain and could be introduced as evidence.

    I was referring to any civil settlement that probably already took place.

    I'd be really interested in phillyesq's opinion, but I would think it would be very difficult to get the Georgia report admitted as evidence in Nevada.

    Probably not difficult to admit the GA report. The GA issue probably strengthen their case. They will point to the behavioral/character issues that Ben displayed in those circumstances. They may point to the counseling that Ben will receive.

    Why would Ben put himself in that situation with a pending case?

    Yes. There is a lesson to be learned here. If you have sex with a woman and then she flips out on you, does all kinds of crazy, irrational things and eventually brings a civil suit against you since you won't be her boyfriend then your next step should be to lock your doors and sit home until it all goes away.

    It is absolutely NOT ok to go out to a bar with friends and bodyguards.

    That is what ticks me off the most about Ben. Knowing what he knew with the McNulty deal, don't you think that when he was in the bathroom with the girl, he could have thought, "Hmm, maybe this isn't a good idea."

    How do you know he was actually in the bathroom with her?

    Answer: you don't.

    That is what ticks me off about many people who automatically assume simply because one of the accuser's friends said she thought her friend was in the bathroom with Ben.
