As many of you have heard there has apparently been a settlement in the LG vs SG lawsuit. It is posted here
. Here are my thoughts....
Dear internet hate machine,
Anyone with an ounce of intelligence can tell that the settlement letter just posted was not written by Phil. It is obviously a letter written by SG lawyers and handed to him with the conditions of, "post this or your life is going to suck for a long, long, time."
I just got off the phone with Phil, and all he will say is "I'm not allowed to talk about it man..." But, as someone who knows Phil personally, this speaks volumes about what is going on.
Here is the lowdown from what I can tell;
A few weeks back Phil went unusually silent about the whole situation, and a few weeks after that he posted something about Apnea being sued. Since he wasn't speaking about it to anyone, I called up the courthouse in Oregon, and low-and-behold there was a new case naming Apnea as the defendant.
So I sent them a few bucks and got the transcripts back in a few weeks. These documents state that Apnea is being sued for -breach of a confidential settlement entered into on March 8th-
The so called breach was for her selling apneaticmedia.com. So it's rather clear that on March 8th the two of them entered into some sort of resolution on the lawsuit, which probably included some clause that forbade them from disparaging SG in any way or from speaking about the case. At some point Phil and Apnea decided to sell apneaticmedia.com and SG used that as an excuse to sue Apnea.
Now Phil posts this junk about being friends with SG. Bullshit. They aren't friends
SG are just flexing their muscle to crush Phil. His post is proof of them trying to humiliate him.
So after fighting this case for two years of his life, and after spending over 40 THOUSAND dollars Phil and SG came to some sort of resolution. Followed immediately by SG suing Apnea.
I am extremely dismayed by all of the negative comment I have been hearing about this settlement. Not many of you would have held up for so long under such circumstances.
A smart person knows when to call it quits, when to move on with their life and rebuild. SG obviously wasn't going to stop until Phil and Apnea had been utterly crushed. SG has the resources to make that happen.
When they come after you, it's hard. When they come after your loved ones
it's a whole different story.
Those of us that are friends with Phil and who have seen what he has gone through are wishing him well and are glad this is over. All your support and help means much more to him than you will ever know. Fighting this was tough
.fighting it alone would have been unimaginable.
Although this resolution is bound to leave a bad taste in some people's mouths, all you have fought for is not in vain. Through your strength and perseverance you have open many people's eyes to the truth behind Suicide Girls and because of you many more will be spared the same fate as you. Sure there are bound to be those who feel let down, but they don't take the time to see the whole picture. You never asked to be a champion for this cause, but you fought nonetheless, and you fought hard.
Your friends still stand behind you.

Miss Romo is an absolute sweetheart who drinks too much, fights too much, and is a general pain in the ass. If it wasn't for the fact that she was a kick ass artist (classical and digital) and a damn good fashion designer as well as a smoking hot model... she'd have been out on the curb a long time ago.
