The OJ Slow News Day Report

It looks as if Judith Regan‘s lawsuit against HarperCollins for firing her last December is still on, according to Radar’s Jeff Bercovici. After nearly producing an agreement, settlement talks between the controversy-courting publisher and the media conglomerate that fired her fell apart about three weeks ago, according to a source close to Regan. Had the deal gone through, Regan would have sidestepped a suit and avoid disparaging her former employers in exchange for around $6 million.

Meanwhile, Fred Goldman explained to Newsweek why the IF I DID IT auction is now a palatable idea for him and his family, despite mixed emotions. “[Goldman's attorneys] described the book as tantamount to a confession. Our concern about the gory specifics are relieved because those don’t exist in the book. Our original concerns have now changed dramatically, though the whole thing is very touchy and concerning for us.”
