Sarah Palin had agreed to pay a New Jersey newspaper $15,000 to settle a lawsuit over her campaign’s use of a photo.  The picture shows firefighters hoisting the American flag on 9/11.  But Palin made a demand that is holding up the works.

According to the documents, William Dunnegan, the attorney for North Jersey Media Group, which publishes The Record of Bergen County, says that on Dec. 22, 2014 — four days after the two sides agreed in principle to settle the case — lawyers for SarahPac, Palin’s campaign organization, “asserted that there must be a broad confidentiality clause.”

“Shortly thereafter, Palin’s counsel, Ronald Coleman, Esq., told me that Palin required a confidentiality clause because her political action committee did not want any hint of a compromise associated with her name,” Dunnegan writes.

Dunnegan included with his filing several emails exchanged with Palin’s lawyers regarding the settlement.

“We have confirmed with our client, and accept your offer of a $15,000 settlement,” Palin attorney Brian Farkas wrote in a Dec. 18, 2014, email that Dunnegan filed with the court. “We assume that this will include a mutual confidentiality/non-disparagement clause in the stipulation of discontinuance.”

NJMG sued Palin, the former governor of Alaska, in 2013, claiming she and her political action committee infringed the publishing group’s copyright. The photo appeared on Palin’s Facebook page beneath her photograph and the words “Never Forget.”

NJMG claimed Palin was using the photograph “to promote Sarah Palin and to raise money for SarahPAC,” the lawsuit says.

    $15,000 for the theft by PalinBrawler does not include secrecy. An NDA will boost her tab by $150,000 -unless she agrees to buyout the newspapers exclusive right to publish. Ya know that 1st amendment free speech thingy! “We assume that this will include a mutual confidentiality/non-disparagement clause in the stipulation of discontinuance.”-Nuh uh!

    No surprise that $arah Pay-lin would engage in intellectual property theft, since she has no intellectual property of her own.
