The post you quoted refers to lawsuits in general and is non-specific to this case, so there are no "sides" to know. But anyone with even a cursory knowledge understands this about our tort system, plaintiff and defendant attorneys alike. Indeed, it is by design, to encourage settlement.
But in the spirit of your question, I understand enough, including having read the dishrag of a complaint, to come to the opinion that if it flows like a sewer, looks like a sewer, sounds like a sewer, and smells like a sewer, it probably is full of sewage.
I have no doubt that in a few years, when this has run its course, my opinion will be validated. But we don't have to argue: the court system will grind away at it and time will tell.
