Michael Lyon Prominent Millionaire: Quickly Forks over 2.5 mil to settle suit


Before the jurors were questioned.   Before all the plaintiff‘s and witnesses were seated.    Michael Lyon settled.   The plaintiffs: former nannies, family members and friends video recorded in bedrooms, bathrooms and showers in Lyons homes in Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.,saved the humiliation of reliving events surrounding  the tapings.  2.5 million dollars and a public apology will bring their chapters to a financial closing.

“(Lyon) states that his mental and emotional condition is such that he has no recollection of participating in any of the acts …,” according to one document filed earlier this year by the plaintiffs’ attorney.

Lyon reportedly kept taping after  he knew he was under investigation.  He initially denied knowledge of the tapes .Last year, the 56 year old Lyon pleaded guilt to felony counts of electronic  eavesdropping.  Part of his one year sentence was spent in jail and the other at home.

There are two other civil suites pending.   He vows to continue with therapy over behavior he described then as “impulsive.”

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
