August 25, 2011 at 5:03 PM (PT)
The BIRMINGHAM BUSINESS JOURNAL has succeeded in having an ALABAMA court unseal the records of PAUL FINEBAUM's suit against his employer, CITADEL BROADCASTING.
FINEBAUM, the syndicated sports talker based at CITADEL Sports WJOX/BIRMINGHAM, filed two suits in JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL that were transferred to ALABAMA Northern District Court, where they remained sealed until TODAY, when the court agreed to unseal the case and gave the parties until noon (CT) FRIDAY to redact the documents. The sealing prevented the public and press from finding out the basis for FINEBAUM's suit and the remedies sought.
