This is not what happened.   Re-read the news for comprehension.

It was a civil suit, it was dismissed. There was no ruling as to whether she was innocent or guilty. It was not a criminal case. Civil suits can be dismissed for a myriad of reasons, the most common of which is that they settled outside of court (which is likely the case in this situation).

Paula Deen was not found to be innocent, the civil suit against her was dismissed and that is all. She likely settled the suit outside of court.

Look.    You need to read for comprehension.

PART OF THE SUIT  was dismissed  - the part of racial descriminiation, because it was initiated by a white person.   

NOT BECAUSE DESCRIMINATION DID NOT OCCUR - BECAUSE THE WRONG PERSON INITIATED IT.  The judge ruled that a white person can't sue for the racial descrimination going on around her.  

We shall see if that ruling stands or disappears when this is appealed. 

That leaves the door open for any of the African-American employees to sue her now.   And they very well may do so.  

NOW there is a POSSIBILITY the REST OF THE SUIT MIGHT BESETTLED, and that does NOT mean dismissed, it means the two parties come to some agreement out of court.   For example, Deen's companies will have to put in place some sort of checks and balances to prevent/stop sexual harrassument.

DEEN CLAIMS she isn't going to have to pay out anything for this SECOND part of the suit to be SETTLED.

NO JUDGE HAS SIGNED OFF ON THIS - THAT MEANS NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE YET.

A LAWSUIT BEING SETTLED (IF THIS ONE IS) DOES NOT MEAN THE DEFENDANT IS INNOCENT.   IT MEANS THEY EITHER THREW THEIR WEIGHT AROUND, OR THEIR MONEY, OR MORE LIKELY BOTH.

THE ARTICLE AMOUNTS TO DEEN SAYING THE SECOND PART OF THE SUIT WILL BE SETTLED. 

IT HAS NOT BEEN SETTLED.   NOTHING HAS BEEN SIGNED OFF ON.

AND SETTLED DOES NOT MEAN INNOCENT.   IT MEANS SETTLED.

Even if the suit was dismissed, her reputation is still destroyed. She would never have the same viewership that she had before.  Even if she got her show, it would never be the same.
