I randomly clicked at a part 20% of the way into the video and the story she told about how he tried to scam the restaurant with a fake cracked tooth took about 5x longer than it should have, it was actually painful to sit through, I don't know how anyone could listen to that

That interview is certainly a train wreck. Here is some much higher tier Postle content:

An out of court settlement for an undisclosed amount is another disappointing outcome. Has Postle ever set foot in a court room or police station over this?

Does the settlement become public knowledge at some point ?

I'm guessing, of all the money that has changed hands throughout this ordeal, the lions share of it has ended up in lawyers hands? How sad is that.

Yeah i think you are right. Those that have benefited most will be the lawyers! Hopefully Veronica does not end up out of pocket but I suspect she will probably be down a bit of money and certainly a load of time and mental / emotional energy she has put into this saga.

How would she be out money? She won the lawsuits and she has endless trunks of money backing her A lot of rich poker players don't like Postle.

All the money going to lawyers.

There was never any judgment on the poker game.

Only on Postle being a litigious AH.

The fact that P had money to settle means that he has plenty since he alleged $270,000 in debt he must have more in assets.
01-12-2022 , 02:26 PM
P could have gotten off scot-free if he didn't sue.

I thought the plaintiff had access to all of Stone's media materials.

It was clear from the beginning when the original attorney could not even get to discovery that he was innocent under CA law.

Surprised nobody brought this up. Check the wife's interview with angry polak.
It has come up. Just go back to the June 2021 portion of this thread, such as post #12951:

I want to clarify something here.

There was indeed a confidential settlement regarding the involuntary bankruptcy itself. For obvious reasons, I can't discuss that.

There was NOT a settlement of the case itself. That matter is still ongoing. I will never be able to discuss the involuntary bankruptcy settlement, due to the confidentiality agreement, but if there's any further news involving the regular case from which it spawned, I'll let you guys know.

Is it possible the court will hear the merits of the case and get into the details or is that a non starter because it was considered a gaming dispute?

No. There were various court cases since this whole mess started.

The ones naming Postle as a defendant (filed by players in his game) were all dismissed in 2020. I had nothing to do with any of that, as I never played poker with Postle.

The one where Postle sued a bunch of people/companies for "defamantion" in 2020 was voluntarily dropped by Postle in April 2021, but Veronica Brill and I won the anti-SLAPP motion related to it anyway. Postle was ordered to pay about $27k in attorneys fees to both me and Veronica. That case is still dropped, and there is still money owed to us from it.

The most recent one was an involuntary bankruptcy attempt against Postle, related to the anti-SLAPP mentioned above. That has been settled with a confidentiality agreement. However, it does not affect the money we are presently owed from the anti-SLAPP.

I hope that clarifies it. The confidentiality agreement only covers the involuntary bankruptcy case.

Thanks for the explanation. Whole thing is certainly a mess. I hope you and Veronica get whatever the best outcome is for you guys. Definitely a shame the merits of the case won't ever be heard

.... perhaps because someone who wanted to get some money or something from the substance of the settlement was willing to sign one ?

I think the point of the question is: why would the other party want them to sign one?

To settle the matter but keep everyone's dirty laundry quiet. It's quite common.

"pffft here's a snide remark in retribution for your utter idiocy"

When someone without expertise asks a genuine question try to refrain from being a dick head.

Well, you have to admit, it was a fairly silly/naive question.

The question was genuine, the answer I gave was pretty straight-forward.

Someone paid something, most likely. Someone got something, most likely. The settling parties wanted to keep the terms private. Without any first-hand knowledge, I think that generality, qualified with a "perhaps" , was the most I could say.

I also certainly didn't think the posed question was idiotic, why would you denigrate it that way ? You want to take a crack at a response to the question ?

Hi Gzesh:

I have a question that perhaps a knowledgeable person like yourself could speculate on. Apparently, there is a settlement between three parties with a confidentiality agreement so that no one can say anything. However, one of the parties is the poker fraud alert person, and I wonder why a poker fraud alert person would sign a confidentiality agreement. Do you have any comments?

Best wishes,
Mason
