If she had not settled out of court and actually went to trial I could see her side. Since she took the quick money I can care less about the bitch...

If you are going to preach all that nonsense about how wrong they treated you then back it up. Take em to trial. Do something. Taking the settlement just made her a hypocrite.

How does it make her a hypocrite? This has always been about TNA not paying her medical bills when they were responsible for her injuries...The independent contractor thing was just a typical legal tactic where you add something to the suit to try to get your opponent to give you what you want, and it worked...

How old are you? Call her a bitch as well? Derp.

Her legal representation probably advised her to talk the settlement. You would have done the same in her position. Don't pretend otherwise.

Re: Daffney Lawsuit: TNA Settles

What.... How is her taking settlement in anyway shape or form bad on her? All it means is that TNA knew they were going to lose and caved in, the precedent is set for future TNA wrestlers regardless. Why go to trial when you've already won?

Obviously badasses like Paladine would risk a large settlement AND face the possibility of paying TNA's legal costs if court case didn't go their way.

You guys can bash me all you want. The fact remains she had a legitimate case she could have taken to trial. If she really believed tna wronged her she could have made a difference. When you settle out of court you basically sell out. You take the bribe to be shut up.

I would have taken the settlement too. It was probably a nice fat check. She got what she wanted out of it, but she still sold out. Now she has no moral high ground to stand on...

If she didn't have a legit case TNA wouldn't have settled, this what you don't seem to get, she probably got just as much money as she would from taking it to trial....

And she did and has made a difference by setting the precedent of taking TNA to court and forcing them to settle.

She went to court to get money from TNA to pay her medical bills, TNA caved in and paid her medical bills, so she dropped the case. Why does this seem to be beyond you?

Settling out of court is not selling out. Its winning. She has made a difference, she did have a legitimate case, she did win. She still has the high moral ground, TNA are still absolute dirt bags for even trying to challenge it. The fact they caved so early shows they just took it this far to try to scare her into backing off which she didn't, and good for her.

I just don't understand how she comes out as anything other than a hero out of this. She got everything she would have if she'd taken it to trial except a larger lawyers bill....

But think about it, do you really think TNA are going to push the next wrestler that far? Now they've proved they'll cave on such things it'll be that much harder for them to try to deny something like this in the future.

It wasn't about moral high ground... from the beginning, it was simply about being compensated for what TNA owed her (medical bills, being unable to work)... what would be the point of bringing it to court once they agree to what you asked for from the beginning?
The independent contractor part of it wasn't some sort of thing to make a difference, send a message, or anything like that... it was just a simple legal tactic to get TNA to cave, and it worked
