    Court Dismisses Stern Suit With Prejudice
    April 16, 2012 (5:48 pm) Spencer

    The news will certainly send shock waves through the media as Howard stern has just lost his epic battle with Sirius XM Satellite Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI). The suit, filed over a year ago, had some tantalizing tid-bits of the history of the Howard Stern deal with Sirius, the merger with XM, and of course the massive bonus structure that Stern received as part of the deal. Stern, has had many rants on his show about how he feels the company cheated him out of potential bonuses worth well over $100 million and possibly as much as $300 million.

    The sides have been at odds for months, but in the end Sirius XM’s request for summary judgement came down in the favor of the satellite radio provider. Documents filed in court today confirm Judge Barbara Kapnick’s ruling. Stern and his agent, Don Buchwald, have the right to appeal, but as of right now Sirius XM is victorious.

    Ha ha ha. Good, he didn't deserve to win. I have a feeling he'll be calling out sick tomorrow.

    "Robin, the judge was paid off by Sirius."

    However with Prejudice means he can resubmit the lawsuit after filing more documentation.

    (I think...I learned that on Judge Judy)

    No, with prejudice means it's over. He can appeal though. Without prejudice means you can re-file. Source: 15 years of practicing law.

    This is the first time I've actually looked forward to the show in years.

    Pwned by the Justice System.

    Might actually have check out the show tomorrow.

    I never thought that Howard had a chance at winning and the the move to filing the suit was embarrassing and pretty low rent to do so right after signing another contract.

    Way to basically spend millions in legal fees to look like a douche Howard, and have fun paying for Sirius' fees now also

    Oh this is good stuff!

    Thanks, lilbuddy.

    DAMN, do I have to break my 1 month Stern-free streak now?? Nah... Let us know if he says anything remotely entertaining, guys. I expect it will be pretty boring -- at best he'll announce his formal radio retirement....

    Good - he didn't deserve to win but I'm surprised that the court granted the summary judgment. Howard must be grumbling about all the marbles he paid to his legal team and hopefully this will put an end to his rhetorical question of whether Sirius and XM are two companies.

    Here's the link to the official court documents - http://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/iscroll/SQLData.jsp?IndexNo=650762-2011
