http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...2Dnews%2 Dhed According to the story, Jordan is accusing the woman of seeking $5 million to keep quiet about a relationship they had ten years ago. If the woman went to Jordan and said she would tell the world about the affair unless he gave her money, is that illegal? There is certainly nothing illegal about her telling the world. At what point do you draw the line and say that someone is extorting? Is asking for hush money against the law?
