    That means that Tech has exonerated him, which is obviously good. But the whole matter needs to be thrown out of court now.

    That is a much higher bar for conviction than Title IX.

    Nah, I'd prefer he share a cell with Brutus who's got a life sentence, an affinity for Ron's 'purdy mouth' and nothing to lose.

    I feel like I went too far with that .... or not far enough? You be the judge.

    This was a good next step in closing this strange and terrible experience for Coach, his family and the Institute. I am hopeful that we quickly see the courts take action and put an end to this.

    Yes, lets not forget the damage this has done to his family. Restraining orders, personal security, I mean who knows what all terror they've been through. And with all the recent revelations about sexual assault, even the most loyal and dedicated wife could be expected to at least have some level of doubt. I hope they can all find some real peace now.

    Would it be? I'm sure it would for a criminal case, but I thought it was a lawsuit. IANAL, but I thought in a civil case it can come down to solely who the jury believes. No doubt about who I would believe, but the jury could see a powerful and wealthy man who mistreated a woman and then had the gall to file a lawsuit against her. They could potentially see all of the bad publicity about R*n B**l as spin that the wealthy man's expensive lawyers put out to further harm the mistreated woman.

    Hopefully an actual lawyer can speak to it.

    Pastner can actually defend himself in court and is entitled to counsel. In a Title IX situation I'm not sure he has any rights. GT may have treated him fairly but they didn't have to.

    Hopefully a lawyer will chime in. It is just my impression that in a civil case facts matter, but spin matters almost as much.

    I've actually sat on juries for both a civil case and a criminal case. While the bar is higher for criminal, it is not as easy as you think to win a civil case (in our civil case the plaintant got $0).
    Civil case is preponderance of the evidence. Basically, the every member of the jury has to be convinced that is more likely than not that the defendant in the case is responsible for what the plaintant alleges.

    Criminal cases are beyond reason of a doubt - which actually has a literal number - 95% chance of being true.

    Anyone ever watch the movie Single White Female?

    I feel like they need to make a male version of it called Crazy White Guy. Ol' RB would be good charactor to model the crazy dude after...
