Howard Stern Takes SiriusXM Back To Court
August 9, 2012 at 6:34 AM (PT)
In APRIL (NET NEWS 4/27), HOWARD STERN’s production company, ONE TWELVE INC. and his agent, DON BUCHWALD, appealed a NEW YORK state judge's dismissal of their lawsuit against SIRIUSXM over unpaid stock awards. In the original suit, STERN and BUCHWALK asserted that the satcaster refused to pay $300 million in stock awards owed to them under an agreement that brought the radio personality to SIRIUS.
Now, STERN has filed a brief with the NEW YORK State Supreme Court Appellate Division to put in motion a hithe latest appeal against SIRIUSXM.
THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports, "the upcoming rematch should be interesting. No stranger to confrontation, STERN himself started moonlighting as a judge of sorts after joining NBC's 'America's Got Talent' in DECEMBER 2011. To what degree STERN takes his case to the court of public opinion is anyone's guess, but he has occasionally used airtime to rail against SIRIUSXM President SCOTT GREENSTEIN, whom he accuses of having a 'f*ing short memory' with regards to where SIRIUSXM was prior to STERN's arrival."
