Its kind of his own fault he's on google for this though.

So again, you state that since he filed this lawsuit it is his fault if he has trouble finding work.

1: While 2.2 Million seems a bit too much, any company that would have someone falsely arrested needs to be taken to the cleaners. Let a just decide how much the guy should get (I'd probably give him the Jeep for free).

A lawsuit is understandable given the circumstances. Is what he went through worth $2.2m in damages? No, barely a fraction of that. And if the company offers reasonable compensation then the lawsuit should be dropped altogether. Lawsuits should seek to redress an injustice, not skew it in the opposite direction.
Both sides come out looking like scumbags. It's a pretty sick culture.
Justice isn't about exacting revenge or disproportionately punishing the offending party - it's about balance, about justness. The actions of the individual (not the company) are at fault and in no way warrant $2.2m, not for a few hours in jail and some relatively minor harassment. All the press has been in favour of the victim, so slander isn't relevant. It was certainly the wrong thing to do getting the police involved but it is equally wrong to try to make millions off of it. The guy deserves some compensation - something already offered by the president of the company - but $2.2m is simply ridiculous. A mistake was made, it was picked up by senior management and a sincere attempt was offered to rectify it. Accept it and move on. This is about greed, pure and simple.

I agree about his rights and suing for a false police report. But $2.2 million, really?
Future job prospects? No effect, he was not found guilty of anything and chargesnwere dropped.
If anything I would think that it WOULD be theft, because he has a signed written legal contract for Car A, but he has taken Car B which he has not and refuses to sign for. Either sign for Car B or return it to get Car A back or Car B is stolen.
No the legal system allows fair compensation, which IMHO, should be around 2k. And then it allows fines for the company breaking the law and misusing police resources. The fines are supposed to hurt. Even then, I'd say 50k wold probably hurt this company quite a bit.
