      Yes you are missing something…read the article.

      Board didn’t pay because of any alleged assault, but b/c of hostile environment and retaliation.

      Yes, you are missing the difference between a criminal conviction which requires guilt beyond a reaonsable doubt and a civil award which requires only a preponderance of the evidence.

      Anejo is correct. OJ was acquitted of the crime, but lost the civil suit.
