    It's been a long while since I heard anything. Last I remember, the judge tossed his case and then he was appealing that decision. Anything new happen since then? :dontknow:

    Appeals have to be based on fact, not being pissed at the verdict.

    He lost the appeal and has no legitimate avenues to appeal further.

    It's game over for him, the great marble shakedown failed.

    Even the Jewish lawyers and Jewish judge laughed at his lawsuit.

    I guess this is the whole rant from the first decision to the final decision.

    "Partners" don't unload their stock options to flood the market and dilute the worth of other legit partners' holdings as soon as legally possible. "Partners" usually make financial investments and carry their own weight in attempting to grow the business instead of negotiating a part time schedule and refusing to promote the product during random mass media TV appearances.

    Damn, even judges are jealous of him.:depressed:

    He doesn't know why the suit was tossed and won't read the decision to find out. That's one evolved human right there.

    Wow....Ok. So the judges didn't see it Howard's way because they were jealous Howard could get that much money? And after this contract he's going to another company? It's pretty clear IMO Howard is doing crappy radio on purpose. Get ready to hear constant promotion of his new radio venture. And of course years later suing them for millions. That's the thing with Howard, he's at his best when there's enemies and something to push for. He has no need to do better radio, he has guaranteed money. No ratings to worry about. He could have Beth in every day talking about animoes or bring in Artie, Jackie and Billy doing amaaazing radio. He's making the same money. Pay Howard based on a ratings scale and we would get great radio again because he would surround himself with talented people.

    He has the typical entrepreneur (or gambler) mentality. He could have 700billion marbles right now but he'd still be driven miserable by this money he 'lost'.

    Howard said they have Amy Schumer and Mark Wahlberg coming in today. He said he has a lot of other stuff to get to today too.
    Howard took a call from a guy who said he saw that Howard lost his appeal with the lawsuit. Howard said he did. He said he's at the end of the road now. He said he has lost and that's the end of the road. He said he's sick over it. Howard said he's literally sick. Howard said he feels it coming on. He said he has a scratchy throat and he's going into a full on cold situation. He said he might have to take on Robin's philosophy and do whatever she does. Robin said she's not sure about that.
    Howard asked Jason to bring in some hot water for his throat. Howard said it wasn't cheap to file an appeal. He said he joined up there at Sirius because he was made a partner. He said he was getting paid on how many subscribers they had. He said he felt he was owed money when they merged. He said they threw his first case out and then he appealed and that was thrown out too. Howard said he thinks that the judges just didn't want him making more money than he's making.
    Howard said he has 2 more years there and then he's going to go off and develop another company. He said he's going to be careful about the wording of his next contract. He said he's going to do his best for two more years there and then it's upwards and onwards. Howard said the contract said something about a merger but that was for a different payment.
    Howard said the wording for the merger was just in case XM took them over and threw them out of there. Howard said he ended up getting defeated. Howard said he saw that some of the senior members there took out millions and they didn't do a fucking thing there. Howard said he has lost and he has to be a good sport. He said he has to go with what the court says. He said his ass is grass.
    Howard said once you have to rely on a guy whose eyes are popping out of his head because of what he earns then you're in trouble. The caller said that this is the same system that took more than six months to okay the merger. Howard said it took a lot longer than that. The caller said that the company is SiriusXM and not XM Sirius. Howard said the company takes money from the same pot and all he was asking for was a day in court. He said he got whipped as bad as he could get whipped. He said he got it in summary judgment. Robin said she's shocked at what does get to go through. Howard said he just has to move on in his life. He said he's bitter but he'll put a smile on his face and move on. He said it's all fake anyway. He said he's putting on a face. He said he was cursed with this face he has. Robin told him to stop it.

    Let me break it down for you, judge had a vaginer, it was late in the day, kids were bugging her, she didn't have time to read the contract.
