Can someone read the lawsuit to me? I can't read or write!
Anyway, if I understand correctly, your opinion on this probably depends on whether or not you buy into the fact that the acquisition of Howard enabled Sirius to beat XM and then ultimately absorb it.
I mean, look, it might be Howard setting up the narrative here, but Sirius wasn't exactly in any position to buy XM when it had 600,000 subscribers. The fact that fucking Sirius, the (under)dog star, would eventually buy XM was unheard of back then. Stern, as much as the show sucks now, had to be responsible for most of that.
That stuff is hard to understand though but I think what it basically says is:
Howard was promised compensation for total subscribers that he brought it. He's saying that if not for him Sirius would have gone under. When the companies merged the subscribers went to 20 million. He wants compensation for the total number of subs. Doesn't look like they specified if the subs came cause of Howard or not. It just says he gets compensated for total subs regardless of where they came from.
Its funny because of what hes been saying the past 2 days about being sued when leaving K-rock and how he hated how they told him it was only business and he wouldn't go back to work for someone who sued him.
But it's like the Gilbert Gottfried incodent. The hiring company knew what they were getting when they made the deal and he came through big time. Now for some reason said company isn't following through with the offer they made and agreed on.
Doesn't matter the amount. Matters what the deal was. If he didn't get the subs, there'd be no problem.
