Jian Ghomeshi Drops Lawsuit; Agrees to Pay CBC Legal Costs

Postby jon » Tue Nov 25, 2014 6:19 pm

Lots of different versions of the story about, but the CBC has confirmed that Jian Ghomeshi has agreed to drop his $55 million lawsuit and pay the CBC for their legal costs racked up to date on the case.

For his part, Jian has not spoken publicly on the subject of late.

There was some speculation that he would wait out the Bill Cosby situation in the U.S., hoping that Cosby would be vindicated, and that this would somehow turn the tide in his favour in Canada.

I'm sorry, but that's the silliest thing I've heard about this situation and would be curious to know who was 'speculating' that.
Houston, We're dealing with morons!.

I think Jian doesn't have a chance using anything to do with the Cosby disgrace, to help sort out his alleged tangled web.

Ghomeshi - will he ever work again in Canada?

Is he still in the States....?

The cretin may never work again.
But, no "tag days" for him.
He may have to move to a jurisdiction where he can't be dragged back.
If so, it's "Freedom 55" for the guy.
