Oprah Settles Defamation Lawsuit

If you rememeber when Oprah spoke out about the accusations about her school in South Africa having a dorm matron who had sexually abused at least seven girls, Lerato Nomvuyo Mzamane was working there at the time. She went ahead and sued Oprah because she felt Oprah had damaged her name during the press conference, also because she says Oprah would not apologize.
Lawyers representing Oprah/Harpo and Lerato Nomvuyo Mzamane released the following statement:
“The two parties met woman to woman without their lawyers and are happy that they could resolve this dispute peacefully to their mutual satisfaction. Ms. Winfrey testified in her deposition that she did not intend the implications placed on her words by the plaintiff. Ms. Mzamane testified in her deposition that she has no evidence that Ms. Winfrey knowingly made a false statement about her or entertained serious doubt about the truth of what she said. We are pleased both parties have reached a conclusion.” — Charles L. “Chip” Babcock and Nancy W. Hamilton, attorneys on behalf of Oprah Winfrey and Harpo, and Timothy McGowan and Matthew Reber, attorneys on behalf of Lerato Nomvuyo Mzamane
Hhmm.. With as much money as Oprah has... yes this needed to be settled out of court. This woman will probably never work nother day in her life.
