So, how much does the actress who made the false accusations owe him?

Oooh, asking JT to provide pertinent info! You're expecting too much.

Good news!

It's good news and I'm happy for him, but hasn't the damage already been done?

Once a person has been slandered the way he has, it must be hard to change and readjust people's misconceptions.

If this whole unproven scandal affects Rush's popularity, then it will affect how much money he can earn. The $1.9 million is a lot of money to the average person, but for an actor of Rush's caliber it's small amount of money.

Anyway, I wish him the best, but his reputation has been put through a meat grinder so (for Rush) this must be a rather bittersweet victory.

Agree with the above comment.

Proof of that is that there have been many comments made on this case in the past right here on JT which seem to support the notion that accusation necessarily equals guilt.

Good to see News Corp get one in the eye, but they'll appeal.
