Kobe sttles for undisclosed amount (sports.espn.go.com)

I had nearly forgot about this. Does this mean she was right? or that he was right but gains nothing by fighting?

I think it means three things:

1. The whole mess is done with
2. Depending on the amount they set, it might save Bryant some money compared to defense costs
3. Kobe will always be able to say he paid to dispose of it, and that will likely be how this is largely remembered...if the case proceeded, there's always a chance he could be found liable, and then he's really tarnished

ESPN Radio here in Los Angeles has been speculating (what else did you expect from sports radio??) on this settlement all day.

They had ESPN legal analyst Roger Kossak(sp?) on earlier & he says it's probably in Kobe's best interest to pay the girl to make this go away. In a civil trial, virtually nothing is off limits. The accuser's attorneys can dig up/bring up/ask him about anything they want. Of course that works against the accuser too, but Kobe has more to lose in that scenario than she does (In Roger's opinion).

P.S. - I sure wish the Lakers were good again.

Also, as Some Guy said on Sportscenter today, a condition of the settlement was no doubt that this girl can't go on TV, write books, etc., giving her side of events to the world.
