A U.S. District Court judge in DALLAS has sent CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS' lawsuit against syndicated host MICHAEL BAISDEN to mediation. The order entered by Judge SAM A. LINDSAY directs the parties to participate in mediation by APRIL 15th, 2015. A trial date has been set for AUGUST 3rd, 2015 with dispositive motions (like for summary judgment) due by APRIL 17th, 2015.
CUMULUS is seeking restitution of $1 million it says it accidentally paid the host due to an accounting error after he left the company when contract negotiations stalled in 2013.
