CBS Radio Sues Stern for Breach of Contract


CBS Radio filed a lawsuit against Howard Stern yesterday, charging that he used his last months on the air there to build up his future employer, Sirius Satellite Radio, and gained financial advantages through a stock sale at the expense of CBS.

The suit was filed in New York State Supreme Court only hours after Mr. Stern pre-emptively took the offensive at a news conference, accusing CBS of trying to threaten and bully him. Mr. Stern denounced the legal action as a "personal vendetta" intended to "distract the media" from bad financial results at CBS-owned radio stations.

After Mr. Stern's attack, CBS filed its 43-page complaint, which accused him of "multiple breaches of contract, fraud, unjust enrichment and misappropriation of CBS Radio's broadcast time." Also included in the suit were Sirius Satellite Radio, which was accused of unfair competition over Mr. Stern's CBS contract, and Mr. Stern's agent, Don Buchwald.

The lawyer in me says this is baseless. The Stern fan in me says this is stupid.

To quote Jeff Jarvis: "CBS is an ass."
