Stern Lawsuit Against Sirius XM Dismissed With Prejudice
April 17, 2012 at 4:06 AM (PT)
The lawsuit filed against SIRIUS XM RADIO by HOWARD STERN's production company, ONE TWELVE, INC., and his agent DON BUCHWALD has been dismissed prejudice by Judge BARBARA R. KAPNICK in NEW YORK STATE Supreme Court.
SATELLITERADIOPLAYGROUND.COM reports, "The lawsuit, filed just over a year ago on MARCH 22nd, 2011, claimed that SIRIUS XM RADIO had failed to uphold its contractual obligations to award certain bonuses, based on the company surpassing certain internal subscriber projections, to HOWARD STERN's production company ONE TWELVE, INC. and his agent DON BUCHWALD. The lawsuit argued that while these subscriber number targets were surpassed, SIRIUS XM RADIO never fulfilled their contractual obligations to pay the bonuses."
A major point of contention in the lawsuit was the argument that after the SIRIUS/XM merger, the previous XM-only subscribers should have been included in the subscriber total benchmarks.
