I don't see how this goofy biatch has any case at all. She got a ton of free publicity, and the entire country was both sympathetic toward her, and absolutely outraged at Imus. She should actually benefit from the incident, thus will have a hard time with any claim of financial damages. At least, that's how it seems to this non-lawyer...

I thought those women took it awfully well considering. Now some sleazeball lawyer got in touch with her and figures they can both make a quick buck. Good luck you scumbags, Imus has already paid through his nose.

I agree, she should let history take its course. Alot of other indusrties also got hit by the Imus events now she and lawyer are heading down a path which wont help the end result.

Sharpton is one of the biggest racists going, he still hasn't apologized for the remarks he made about those Duke University Lacrosse players.

Of course it happened, but it was the cops fault.................
They forced him to shoot them, and they had it coming anyway, just ask Ol' Al...........

I think that any jury would find it opportunistic that she waited until it was announced that Imus received a $20M settlement from CBS.

He is also covered by a slew of First Amendment issues since he did not name her, or was not remotely specific in his remarks. She will also have to sue NBC, CBS and the other participants of the broadcast.

NBC and CBS have very deep pockets for lawsuits and my guess his contract at the time of the remarks had a clause that protected him from suit while on the air as their entertainer.

Once when I wanted to file suit against a company that had done me very wrong [rhymes with Ourethics Endz] I was rightly advised that they had MUCH more "Fuck you" money available than I had.
