    plenty of lawsuits from Condit. had to keep getting new lawyers. Last one was threatened by judge with malpractice for spurious lawsuit.

    None of the settlements were revealed and Condit refused to deposition under oath so I do not consider any of the settlements to have established libel against Condit.

    Some of the stuff involved National Enquirer so you're more than welcome to put quotes around news concerning them.

    I did not analyze, document, and correlate stuff from the National Enquirer publisher. (American Media or something like that)

    Since the "brilliant" remarks were made about Dr. Phil's guests and not to them during their respective interviews, your assessment is likely correct. I used smiley to indicate what I believe is sarcasm in calling either of these men "brilliant". I don't consider either of them intelligent enough to be considered "brilliant".

    Yes LAWSUITS. Yes SETTLEMENT.

    I watched Thursday’s Dr Phil show of Gary Condit. As I recall (without re-watching the segment), Dr Phil stated that there was a ‘settlement’ of the slander lawsuit against Dunne.

    Slander lawsuit by Gary Condit, includes some excerpts of Condit’s and Dunne’s deposition:

    The settlement terms are apparently confidential:

    A similar lawsuit by Condit against Dunne was settled in March 2005; the terms remain confidential.

    It doesn’t seem like a legal ‘deposition’ – if it isn’t under OATH.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deposition_(law)
    Prior to taking a deposition, the court reporter administers the same oath or affirmation that the deponent would take if the testimony were being given in court in front of a judge and jury.

    From the 2005 CBS News Link to the deposition:

    "Was there any physical intimacy of any kind in your relationship?" LiCalsi wanted to know.

    "I instruct Mr. Condit not to answer the question," Condit's attorney, L. Lin Wood, interjected at that point.


    [....]

    Question: "And how long have you had a low opinion of Gary Condit?"

    Dunne: "I've had a low opinion of Gary Condit almost from the beginning of the disappearance of Chandra Levy."

    [....]

    At the time, on local TV, Condit said, "I am not going to share the details of my relationship with Chandra."

    This coming out party on Dr Phil's Show is the same song, the second verse from 2005.

    It isn't. He refused to deposition on any of his lawsuits. One can surmise what they will about the undisclosed "settlements" of each of his lawsuits.
    You don't have much leverage if you refuse to answer questions under oath.

    Dunne probably paid him a small amount of money based on his statements about the lawsuit. The lawsuit was not about published "news", but was based on comments Dunne made at a dinner party that Condit probably knew more than he was saying. I'm pretty sure that's not terrific grounds for libel.

    National Enquirer probably paid him some money, but that's their business model. Print trash and libel settlements are a cost of business.

    Sad to see that the only exposure this case gets is when the last suspect is released and supposed to be deported. I still believe the killer is out there, but the case seems to be VERY cold.

    Just to be clear, he joined the El Salvadoran gang in prison because, well, that's what prisoners do since they're allowed to roam around and maim each other. I wrote in last chapter of Murder on a Horse Trail how I would handle violent prisoners.

    On Friday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement "removed" Ingmar Guandique from the the country, the agency said in a statement. Guandique, an undocumented immigrant, was sent to his native El Salvador.

    How many unsolved investigations about a missing and presumed murdered congressional intern manage to escape the eyes of the media for more than a decade? That is one of the questions that The Learning Channel’s Chandra Levy: An American Murder Mystery tries to answer. The show aired September 4th, and it works with the investigator who believes the show is the last chance for any hidden evidence to surface with the hope of solving the mystery.

    It's available on the Learning Channel, but you have to be a subscriber to one of a limited number of cable systems:

    This case seemed like it should have been solved. I wonder why the detectives continue to think Chandra searched for Rock Creek on her laptop? It could have been that the murderer searched the computer to plan for disposal. Correct? Crime scene at her apartment, the woods not for jogging, but for dumping. Thats the only angleI see.
