    A civil case is different (proof by a preponderance of the evidence, not beyond a reasonable doubt). I agree that there is likely to be a lawsuit and that there may well be a settlement, but from my perspective, this whole thing started because the parties couldnt reach a settlement and the value of the no publicity was much greater before the story broke initially, since a good deal of the damage has already been done.

    In short, good news, but the story isnt over. As it relates to the Rams, the issue is one of distraction for jackson. As long as this drags on, it cant possibly help his focus on the field. Not saying it will hurt, but he is only human, and this sure cant help.

    You are right of course, but a civil suit for Domestic battery when the cops couldn't even find enough evidence to file criminal charges is very thin. Unless she has some evidence that could be permitted in civil, and not criminal court, it will be very hard for her to get a favorable ruling. I smelled BS on her story from a mile away.

    A defeated look of consternation, dissappointment, or even pain. The name derives from the look one often gets when challenged by a large BM.
