  • Maybe he and Stefan Arzberger can meet for coffee, like two German violinists in New Yorks and share complaints about judicial system?

    • One possible reason for not taking this to a criminal court (besides the absence of money damages for the victim if he is convicted); The standard of proof in a civil case is that the allegations must be found to be more likely than not true (i.e., 51% or more). The standard of proof in a criminal matter is “beyond a reasonable doubt” (usually considered to be a threshold of 90%).

      • I agree. I don’t know whether you are from the US, but here in the UK it is broadly the same. However, I believe that in the UK the solicitors handling the victim’s civil claim would have encouraged her to report her complaint to the police as well, so that the alleged perpetrator could also be prosecuted in a criminal court. If it is true that he has actually done the acts alleged in the civil claim, he should not just pay financial compensation. These are allegations of very serious violent and sexual crimes, for which ordinarily a substantial term of imprisonment would be appropriate for the purposes of public protection and reform of the offender. If the alleged victim really believes that he has done these things to her, she should consider it to be be an obligation as a citizen to report the matter to the police and to cooperate with a criminal prosecution. Further, I don’t know how it works in the US, but in the UK a verdict in a criminal court can be used as evidence to support a civil claim. On the other hand, a civil claim is sometimes also pursued when a criminal prosecution has failed as it affords the victim the opportunity to have the complaint proven in a court of law, albeit to the lower standard of proof used in a civil court.

    • Perhaps because a criminal court neither could nor would dish out large sums of money to the alledged victim …

  • So he likes trans porn and cocaine… at least his personal life is more interesting than his performances.

  • I predict an out of court settlement for way under $1M.

    She doesn’t seem to have any expert medical opinion supporting the claim that the one swallow of urine caused her kidney stones three months later and i doubt she will have one.

    I suspect all his attorney attempt to play some of her own porn (star?) performances to the jury.

  • Well… So many Russians back in ussr time being drinking their own urine (even special boil it or collected from others) for health reasons. There’s one main person who created the whole thing – Gennadiy Malachov. He’s still alive and healthy. Still into his idea of urinatherapy. (Check his web site http://www.genesha.ru/articles/lechenie-mochoi-urinoterapiya/)
    And he has many followers.
    I personally being drinking it too back then. Of course no kidney infection or stones. It’s just too funny to get it from urine (I can’t believe how doctors could state this diagnosis).
    Though it can help to dissolve stones and move them from the body. While that the temperature can raise. That’s normal process of healing.
    As well urine is the best thing for the burns. Natural, free and works right away;)))))) just pour it on the burning spot and voilà^^

    Then there’s Yakut shamans and medicine men who drink deer urine (after animal ate amanita muscaria mushrooms) again for health and spiritual reasons.

    So everything alright with urine;)))))

    About other parts of the article… There’s just too much sin these days. Too much lie, pain, heartlessness .. It’s totally disgusting.
    Huge cleaning and healing of the souls and minds needed. Change of morals, standards and ideas… (In all areas). Too much work. Maybe one cut of Apocalypse will be better.

    I feel sorry for both heroes of the story. I feel both of them inside and it’s sad. But in this days (especially in us) It’s not surprising.

    Hopefully at least the judge will have high moral standards, clear heart, high deep far seeing wisdom and intellect to bring the right resolution of the situation.
