Kobe Bryant settled with his accuser. This shouldn’t surprise anyone in the least, as I have said previously the alleged victim was likely out for money more than seeing Bryant punished, and Bryant, knowing going through an entire civil trial would be more expensive, ponied up. But now that this whole mess is practically over, the mainstream media still insist on not identifying her by name, even though she had to file the civil lawsuit under her own name in the first place and Bryant was never convicted of the rape charge, making the so-called rape-shield law irrelavent. It’s sort of humorous that I didn’t think to look for it until just now. I guess that means I’m not as “cutting edge” as I’d like to be.
