Not quite accurate; they're not in debt. They reported a huge loss, but 6BN out of 150BN or whatever is kind of like a bad day at the racetrack.
 Also, I'm pretty sure the details of the settlement include monetary damages if he breaks the agreement, regardless of Sony's response. Which means the "Justice" system of the USA would automatically award damages to Sony. I find it odd that a system meant to serve and protect the general public can be so easily manipulated into working in favor of criminals and extortionists...
