    In his discussion of the Sony hack. He also mentioned having " a lot of stressful things going on". Maybe someone is suing the Wig? Couldn't happen to a more deserving "man".

    Marksfriggin:
    Howard said if he was the president of Sony he would have gone berserk. Howard said he would have felt abandoned and alone. Howard said that corporations are made up of people like you and me. He said that a threat was made that they were going to blow up a movie theater. Howard said Sony had been hacked and they were reeling from that. Howard said the press was taking this information and supporting the terrorists by printing it all. Howard said he had a good time reading it but as he pointed out he thinks the country should have banned together and they should have come out right away saying they were under attack and stand up to those people. Howard said they can't fire anyone because of the attack. If they do then the terrorists win. Howard said when the movie was pulled he understood what Sony was going through. Howard said the country is full of venomous snakes called lawyers. Howard said they just sue and sue. Howard said that if there was an incident the lawyers would have lined up for years. Howard said that they would have said they knew and they were money grubbers. Howard said they would have said they knew and they shouldn't have released it.

    Howard got a 25,000,000.00 bonus from Sirius for getting people to sign up. Most people would have been happy with that. Howard sued the company.

    Good thing the 'venomous snakes' have litigious clients like Howard who pay big $$ to keep them in business.

    Howard's litigation over the years includes:

    - Sued Evergreen for pulling the plug on his show in Chicago - didn't give him a chance for the "slow build" of ratings

    - Sued film company over movie he was supposed to do with Melanie Griffith

    - Sued by CBS over pimping Sirius gig on his K Rock show

    - Sued Sirius/XM over sham claim for performance bonuses

    - Appealed Judge Kapnick's summary judgment and lost again

    What are some of the other lawsuits that the 'man of the people' Stern has been involved in over the years?

    I'm currently listening to shows from 2004 and he was talking about suing Clear Channel for dropping his show and not paying him.

    yeah, when:
    a) they're suing him or
    b) they're billing him for suing others
    then they're "venomous."

    However, when they're successfully suing others on his behalf
    then in that case they're doing "the work of Mother Theresa"

    If the Wig really believed he was supposed to be a 'partner' with Sirius and that his bonus was due as he said, his Sirius suit should have been a malpractice suit against his attorneys who drafted and approved the agreement.

    He hates lawyers because he probably had to pay them handsomely, and still was handed a plate of his ass with all the trimmings thanks to judge whatshername.
