Around the same time, Webb was approached by his accuser, who apologized. He forgave her.
Webb hired a lawyer, Rand Eddy, who helped him with his compensation fight. The battle was won Tuesday, and all Webb needs to do is sign the agreement and wait for a judge to approve it. After that, he should receive a check, NBC News reported.
Webb said the money is just another step in the healing process.
"But, hell, a public apology would have been the cheapest way to come to that," he said.
