I always wondered wth happened to my favorite show - a freakin Loser decided to sue them cause her gay, predator ass, brother killed himself. Not to be harsh or anything but OH WELL! I mean, how can you be mad at them for protecting little boys? Your brother was a PERVERT! He was chatting with and having sex with little boys - something is deeply disturbed with her for wanting to sue NBC, sorry!!
I actually remember this episode - it was crazy. Dude was like a DA and well respected in his Dallas suburb home. His friend, the sheriff, was at the house with NBC and felt bad that he had to take his homie in - but he had a job to do. They were creeping outside and he must have just known what was going on, well why they were surrounding his crib cause next thing you know you hear a gun shot. Yea, it was sad and I feel bad for him but if that's what it took to protect the youth, my heart isn't too sour. Not to mention the freakin show has been canned - BOOOOOO!!
As posted on NYdailynews:
NBC Universal has settled a $105 million lawsuit brought by a woman who claimed a televised sex sting by "Dateline NBC: To Catch A Predator" drove her brother to kill himself.
"The matter has been amicably resolved to the satisfaction of both parties," said a statement released by both sides. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Patricia Conradt's lawsuit had claimed her brother, a suburban Dallas prosecutor, fatally shot himself after he was accused of engaging in a sexually explicit online chat with an adult posing as a 13-year-old boy.
The lawsuit claimed NBC "steamrolled" authorities to arrest Louis William Conradt Jr. after telling police he failed to show up at a sting operation 35 miles away.
NBC was working with the activist group Perverted Justice on the sting, in which people impersonating children established online chats with men and tried to lure them to a house, where they were met by TV cameras and police.
In February, a federal judge issued a scathing ruling in the case, saying a jury might conclude the network "crossed the line from responsible journalism to irresponsible and reckless intrusion into law enforcement."
U.S. District Judge Denny Chin said the lawsuit contained sufficient facts to make it plausible that the suicide was foreseeable, that police had a duty to protect Conradt from killing himself and that the officers and NBC acted with deliberate indifference.
New episodes of "To Catch A Predator" ended in December, with the future of the series uncertain.
"Right now we are working on other investigative stories focusing on national security and the economy," NBC spokeswoman Jenny Tartikoff said Wednesday in an e-mail. "If we do more, we want to make sure we are complementing past investigations not just repeating them."
