Paula Deen Settles the Suit that Humiliated Her and Cost Her so Much

The lawyer of Lisa Jackson, who sued Paula Deen last year, wrote to Deen’s attorney that she should pay the $1.25 million his client was seeking, because she would lose more than that in bad publicity – but far be it for a lawyer to blackmail! Indeed, as the media crucified the culinary host, she probably lost quite a bit more than that, but there are principles, and Deen had them when she insisted she did nothing wrong, and that “I am confident that those who truly know how I live my life know that I believe in kindness and fairness to everyone.” Whatever, the case, the suit has been dropped, the first part being the racial claims, which the judge said Jackson couldn’t sue for, being white, and not being fired because of her complaints about working conditions. Those claims were probably included merely to pressure Deen to cough of the money they were seeking.

As for what the terms were on the remaining suit, which was after Paula’s brother for sexual misconduct, they have not been revealed to the public. The U.S. District Court in Savanna only announced that it agreed to drop the case, and the aptly named Wesley Woolf, lawyer of Jackson, said “the matter has been amicably resolved.”
