Thoughts on Settling

Older posts on this website reveal a more rigid opinion on lawsuits, one in which I was not in favor of settling. In the past, I have criticized other dancers who have settled. I have since settled, and my opinion has changed. It's a personal decision, particularly in an individual lawsuit where other people in a class action don't need to be considered. I no longer shame others for avoiding the emotional turmoil of a trial, and instead choose to accept an undisclosed amount of cash. Filing a lawsuit against a strip club at all is a courageous thing to do, and each lawsuit is another strike against the system which exploits their workers in the way that strip clubs do. Even with settling, strip clubs are likely to think twice before exploiting future workers to the extremes that they have done in the past.
