Lisa Jackson’s attorney has made a huge mistake making all of the charges public before the trial and getting Paul fired from the Food Network. They needed her still working in order to get a big settlement.
Now they have to hope they get a very sympathetic jury, which may not be easy, because this lawsuit is the result of being told “NO” to her original demand for hush money. And after destroying Deen’s career the woman has no prayer of an out of court settlement.
If I were Deen I would sue the attorney for revealing the contents of the deposition.
Regarding Paula needs to keep working to pay the settlement, it was on the news that she earned $14 million last year. If that gets out, she’ll be lucky if half the population of Georgia isn’t “offended” by her use of the word. I’ll bet the line is already forming to sue her. There’s probably a greaseball law firm ad on Georgia TV “Been offended by Paula Deen? Call our law firm ‘Herbucks Wilbe Yers” so we can advise you on how offended you are”
