    One questions raised in comments is who gets the money - the school or the man. It's the school who sued her.

    The Long Beach Unified School District won a $2.6 million default judgment against a woman whose false rape allegation in 2002 cost the school district money and landed a fellow student in jail. ....Gibson was a student at Long Beach Poly High when she first sued the district for having lax security and an unsafe environment after she accused Brian Banks, a promising football star, of rape.
    And the man who was falsely accused?
    Banks earlier this year signed a contract to play football for the Atlanta Falcons. He was unavailable for comment.
