I was very clear that I am not presuming whether or not she is telling the truth or not. That's for the court to decide. But she has taken a route that damages the credibility of other women are similarly abused and assaulted. These sorts of accusations are so emotionally charged and subject to doubt as it is, they don't need clumsy attempts like this to make it even harder for these crimes to be punished.
I think you're missing my point here. I WANT rapists and sex offenders to get busted for it, I WANT them to do time and I WANT it to cost them personally. But waiting 8 months after the incident is alleged to have occurred and then suing for damages in civil court rather than filing charges makes people immediately doubt the facts in the case. I would think that any reputable attorney would have told her this, especially given the number of cases that I've seen in the last year alone where women were found to have fabricated stories like this in order to get a payday.
