Imus "Nappy Headed Ho" Lawsuit Withdrawn

The Rutgers student who filed suit against Don Imus after Imus called the university's women's basketball team "nappy headed hos" has withdrawn that suit:

Kia Vaughn had contended in the lawsuit filed in August in New York state Supreme Court that the comments made by Imus had damaged her reputation. The lawsuit also named various media outlets that broadcast Imus' show.

Marti McKenzie, a spokeswoman for Vaughn's attorney, Richard Ancowitz, said in a statement that Vaughn had chosen to focus on her education at New Jersey's Rutgers University as a journalism major and as an athlete with the basketball team.

If I were to meet Ms. Vaughn on the street tomorrow, it's likely I wouldn't know who she is. Not only that, why would I judge her over a stupid comment made by Don Imus? Seems to me it's his reputation that got trashed as a result of this situation. Maybe he should sue someone?

For whatever reason, wisdom and cooler heads prevailed here. Ms. Vaughn would do well to get on with her life like the rest of us.

I agree; it's fortunate that cooler heads prevailed.

I can only hope that "focussing on her athletics and studies" can propell her to do the good for thousands of folks that Imus has done.

Kind of scary that someone with such an ego (who, please tell me, knew her name prior to suit)wants to be a journalist.
