I think you are right on that Southwest will settle out of court, but I don't think it is because they feel they will lose the case. There are still to many questions from a legal standpoint to say it would go one way or another. I think the biggest reason why companies are settling out of court is publicity. What company in todays economy wants to look like the bad guy and have it plastered on every major media outlet. Their lawyers are probably saying it is a tossup and the marketing folks are shouting with all their might, "SETTLE". Just my two cents. It would be nice if somebody went to court so that it would help clear the air.

Knee jerk says that if the companies are settling out of court, that they know they are on shaky ground at best.
