It seems obvious that the housekeep in the DSK has decided to abandon the criminal legal process and the Manhattan District Attorney. This should not come as a surprise to anyone. She can pretend that the reason for this decision has to do with the district attorneys questioning her veracity to the tell truth. These dedicated professionals are simply doing their job and, admittedly, under difficult circumstances. If the housekeeper were to testify in the criminal case her credibility would forever be ruined and she would surely become the center of a criminal investigation. At that time the probability of her successfully prosecuting a civil action against DSK would be reduced to zero. The housekeeper has made a decision based upon economics; if she is going to be criticized, vilified, and investigated for what she will say, she believes that someone should pay her for the effort.
