This week’s dilemma is as follows:

You have a beloved twelve year old son, who is friends with a high profile celebrity. The friendship is an unusual one, but the guy is a mega-celebrity, so it doesn’t occur to you to be worried.

One day your son comes to you, and tells you that he has been molested by this mega-star. You believe him one hundred per cent, because as far as you are concerned, your son has no need to lie.

You bring a civil suit against the celebrity, and he offers you and your son $22m to stop the court proceedings.

What do you do? Do you take the money, thinking you may as well, seeing as it’s a possibility that you may lose the court case anyway, or do you refuse the ‘dirty money’, and fight for justice for your son?

What would you do?
