    This is what it officially says on the court website:

    Closed/Final- Order of Dismissal, signed and filed.

    Hey Everyone,

    Notice Wood is not crowing about the "settlement". Even if a lawyer can't mention amounts of money when these cases are settled they certainly can discuss the money in a generic sense.

    The fact that there is zero fanfare from Lin Wood shows me with an almost 100 percent certainty that zero money changed hands. Or if money did change hands it was a very small amount. I am assuming it was much less than what it would have cost for CBS to go to court.

    Did CBS agree not to show the documentary again? If that were the case Wood would have been yelling from the roof of his law firm.

    Did CBS admit any guilt? No

    What did Burke get out of this? ZERO that I can see.

    I was hoping CBS would take this all the way to trial but hey, what can you do?

    Don't look at this as being a big win for Lin Wood and the Ramseys. It's just the opposite in my opinion.
    No admitted guilt,
    Was money given to Wood? Don't know but my guess is no.
    CBS can show the documentary again as far as I can tell. You would think if Lin Wood could have proven all the lies
    he claimed was in the show he would have done his best to take this suit to court.

    Notice how Lin Wood NEVER goes all the way to court to defend the Ramseys?

    Just Sayin'

    I'm sure John loved the CBS series. It didn't mention anything about his fibers having been found in his daughter's pubic area. He's finally been rendered a background character, involved in only "staging" while the murder is being blamed on a 9 yr. old. Whether or not John got paid, I'm sure he's laughing his butt off.

    The headline in the black box is misleading.

    This cas was not settled as I read it. The judge dismissed it. In my thinking/belief there is a major difference in the use of these two words, settled and dismissed.

    Settle leads one to immediately believe there was a monetary payment. Judge dismissed says the judge didn’t think the case had substance to be pursued.

    That’s assuming a lot about verbiage. Most likely their electronic filing system doesn’t have a separate “settled” category, only “dismissed”.

    Burke Ramsey probably wouldn’t drop his suit without at least having his attorney fees paid. So this is almost certainly a settlement in which CBS is paying something to somebody. And likely the terms are confidential, so his attorney wouldn’t be able to “crow from the rooftops” as another post put it.

    My guess - payment of court costs by CBS plus some additional sum, agreement by CBS not to re-air the program or make it available on online platforms, and no further statements or press conferences about the case or settlement, by either side.

    Now if we do see the program show up again on CBS All Access or whatever platform, then it would be a win for CBS. But if the thing remains shelved, that’s a win for Burke. JMHO

    The father will do anything to protect the one child he has left, even though that child killed the other child. Odd, but makes sense in a weird way.

    A statement was released Friday from a spokesperson for producers of The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey, stating that 'The parties have reached an amicable resolution of their differences and will have no further comment,' according to the Daily Camera.

    Burke's lawyer, Lin Wood, told Reuters that, 'the case has been amicably resolved to the satisfaction of all parties.'

    He later tweeted: 'After handling many defamation cases for them over the past 20 years, hopefully this is my last defamation case for this fine family.'

    I would love to know the reason behind this and the benefits of it for each party.

    To settle means that the involved partys of the law suit were able to settle their differences out of court before a trial was to begin.

    It just seems strange to me that Burke did not demand CBS release a statement in regard to his innocence and/or an public apology to him.

    He had two with Patsy, Burke and Jonbenet, Patsy has since died. This was obviously what I was referring to.

    It wasn't obvious to me since you said, "The father will do anything to protect the one child he has left..."

    The case was dismissed BECAUSE it was settled. The parties "reached an amicable resolution":
