Horn v. Huddle, et.al. Officially Settled 16 Yrs and $3 Million Later

After a decade and a half, the Court officially dismissed this case with prejudice but "not without some misgivings" according to Judge Lambert:

"[...] It is not without some misgivings that the Court reaches this decision. Another member of this Court last year approved the settlement of another case (involving the FBI's investigation of the anthrax mailings in late 2001) which involved payment to an individual plaintiff of almost $6,000,000 by the United States. See Hatfill v. Mukasey ... It does not appear that any government official was ever held accountable for this huge loss to the taxpayer.

Now this Court is called upon to approve a $3,000,000 payment to an individual plaintiff by the United States, and again it does not appear that any government official have been held accountable for this loss to the taxpayer. This is troubling to the Court."
