    If you cover Chris Farley in your avatar, D, leaving only the frilly on his right hand (left side of the image) it looks like a sabretooth tiger with bloody teeth.

    I also see a cloud out the window that looks like Mikhail Gorbechov.

    So O'Reilly is pre-emptively suing because she is going to file sexual harassment charges?

    No, he is suing because she's trying to extort money from him.

    What's the difference between an out-of-court settlement and asking for settlement before a court hearing ever takes place?

    I must have missed what exactly Fox/O'Reilly are asking for, monetary-wise.

    IF they are asking for $$ the difference is:

    "they" said "give us money, or we'll make up some sexual-harrassment charges which will embarass you"

    Fox says

    "Fuck that, that's illegal...we're sueing YOU now. :) "

    A Yahoo! article I read mentioned that the girl might have some kind of tapes.

    Also, it appears that all of the accusations are verbal sexual harrassment, not physical.

    Yeah I understand the circumstance but leaving out the "we'll make something up" bit, I'm talking purely from a legal standpoint. Why is it legal to go to court, and then say, ok, for this much money we'll DROP the charges, but illegal to go directly to the accused and say for this much money we won't FILE any charges.

    Possibly because without a court's presence you technically couldn't prove a decision was reached or that the decision was carried out...? I dunno, looking for more on this.
