- New woman says Kobe pushed up on her at Shaq's house.
- Shaq may have to testify.

The soap opera just doesn't want to die.

I wonder how many more women will start coming out of the woodwork to claim that Kobe groped them too. Crazy.

YIKES! That's just nasty.

If Shaq ends up being the one who actually gets a jury to convict Kobe, there might finally be proof that karma does exist.

The accuser is thinking about dropping the case and just simply sue him. Note that this wouldn't be the first time.

What kind of a clown is running this trial? How many more 'accidental' leaks are going to get out to the media before a mistrial pretty much has to be declared?

Interesting take on the Kobe case I found on another forum. Can't say I really disagree with it. (Edited to keep the accuser's name masked)

    Originally posted by someone from another forum
    Saying the girl is thinking of giving up is "lawyer talk" for, "Hey Kobe, offer us some money and the whole thing goes away."

    This thing was about Fame and Fortune from the very start.

    First, (the accuser), as we all know, tried out for American Idol in a desperate effort to gain fame. That didn't work. Her boyfriend breaks up with her and in another attempt to gain attention, she attempts suicide...twice. She finds out Kobe Bryant is coming to town and arranges this whole scenario with her boyfriend at the time who so conveniently happens to work with her in the hotel (the bell hop). She now has the recogntion, although notorious, that she craves. Just another suburban skank driven by her hunger for drama and attention.

    Secondly, the sheriff was so much in a rush to arrest this high-profile suspect, that he completely bypassed the DA - which is the protocol in these situations - and went directly to the Judge to have Kobe detained. Obviously, these small town freaks were excited just to have a big star involved in something like this, giving them an opportunity to ride his fame all the way into newspapers, magazines and news channels all across the country.

    Third, the person who is going to gain the most out of all of this is the same person who was leading the prosecution: the DA. Hurlbert was in his last year when this case broke out, and he'll be running for re-election pretty soon. What better way to boost your resume then to show you locked up the biggest name in sports? Then, just on the cusp of the prosecution taking another hit with the release of the closed-court documents, he decides to remove himself from the case and focus on his re-election campain. Yeah, how convenient. Now it doesn't matter if the prosecution wins or loses, Hurlbert got his name in the public eye just in time for elections. This was just politics.

    Fourth, now that (the accuser) and her lawyers see that they have no chance of winning, they're circling over Kobe's bank account like a flock of vultures. This is most likely what she had planned all along. In the next few days we're going to see the prosecution drop the rape charges, and file a civil suit. And what does she care? She already got the attention she wanted, might as well go for the fortune as well. How sad is it that they're going to play it off as the Court's fault that she decided to drop charges. PITIFUL.

    Kobe made a dumb mistake, but he has been stripped down, hung up and beaten beyond repair. In the end this case will be remembered as a man's lust leading him into a pre-meditated trap built upon one woman's search for fame and fortune, and a legal system's propensity to manipulate the public for its own political gains.
