I'm sure most of you Sternophiles know about this, but I haven't seen it brought up since all the droning AGT talk. This passage is from the law firm that represented CBS: Stern had announced in October 2004 that he would be going to Sirius at the end of his CBS Radio contract, which was to expire on December 31, 2005. Stern's CBS show then became essentially a one-year infomercial for Sirius Satellite Radio. After Stern left, CBS Radio discovered that as a result of his plugging Sirius on the air while employed with CBS Radio, Stern and his agent received substantial compensation. On behalf of CBS, we filed suit against Stern and his agent for breach of contract, misappropriation of millions of dollars of radio air time, and tortious inference of an existing contract, among other things. In response to this complaint, Stern started a major media blitz about the case. Meanwhile, as soon as the complaint was filed, the case was in high gear and moving fast. We were geared up for discoveryâ€“filed document requests and deposition notices... The case settled favorably before that could happen.
