    [h=1]Howard Stern Files Appeal In Lawsuit[/h] April 26, 2012 (8:00 am) Spencer
    [​IMG]It certainly did not take long for attorney’s from the stern camp to get the paperwork together to file an appeal. The lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice and was first reported here at SiriusBuzz. following the decision by Juge Barbara Kapnick, Howard Stern expressed dismay at the judges ruling and vowed an appeal. Following the news we here at SiriusBuzz reviewed the documentation and consulted various attorney’s for their opinion. Their opinion was that Stern indeed had grounds for an appeal, and that in fact the bonus for the year 2007, at a minimum, appeared to be owed to Stern given the legal language. SiriusBuzz offered that deeper look in a follow-up article published April 18th.
    The news that Stern was going to appeal should not be a shock to anyone. The fact that the appeal was filed so quickly may take some by surprise. In a short and simple Pre-Argument Statement, Sterns’ team contends that Judge Kapnick misinterpreted the contract language and therefore erred in issuing summary judgment.
    While the higher court is not required to accept the appeal, it would appear that there is enough for this appeal to at least garner consideration. In reviewing the documents filed it does indeed appear that the judge may have mis-assigned certain bonuses to certain years and missed at least one bonus. in fairness to the judge, the original filing did seem to offer room for such confusion. The fact that bonuses were paid in the calendar year after the performance year probably did not help.
    Clearly the Stern saga is not done. Stay tuned. Legal filings below:

    I hope the appeal is thrown out just as quickly as Stern filed it.

    "...consulted various attorney’s for their opinion." Christ. Is there no standard in jounalism anymore? Do people not need to learn how to pluralize correctly?

    Wonder who really pushed the issue to file an appeal. Methinks it's Howard's team of attorney's :)c). He seems to be easily led around by those who he deems smarter than he. His psychiatrist is a prime example of this.

    Deplorable Stern....

    -Female Judge inferior/incompetent.

    -Wiggy desperately wants everyone to think his 25 million dollar contract language was intended to be a safeguard in case XM came out on top. It is just dumb luck the Sirius won and he received and cashed 25 million dollar check....:jj:

    Good, it'll be funnier to see it thrown out a second time, but the idiot still won't understand

    Hey I'm all for him appealing. And I can't wait until he gets rejected again. This has pissed him off so much, I am loving every second of it.

    On the plus side, when Howard does his media tour for AGT he can easily brush off any questions about losing his lawsuit with the old, "I can't talk about it, it's under appeal!" excuse.
    Which answers the question of the quick turn around on the filing of the appeal.
