With the beating they've taken in all the markets he was in, they've got to do something.

This lawsuit is a waste of CBS's time and money. If any thing they are giving him more publicity and he will only benefit from this in the long run.

I don't know....sounds pretty solid to me...If he did hide part of his Sirius deal (the stock incentive) then he is in breach of contract + and he was pimping the S out of Sirius while duing his broadcast on CBS which allowed him to get the stock early which he then cashed in for a hugh quick payday.
