CBS Radio Told Imus To Be Controversial Then Fired Him When He Was / The Hypocrisy Of CBS Radio

Imus hires attorney, will likely sue CBS

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Former radio talk show host Don Imus has hired one of the country's top trial lawyers to sue CBS Radio following his dismissal last month for making racial and sexual on-air comments about members of the Rutgers University women's basketball team.

Attorney Martin Garbus told CNN Wednesday that he has agreed to represent Imus in a wrongful breach of contract suit against his former employer.

Garbus would not disclose when he was retained by Imus but said he plans to file an action against CBS in the near future. Calls made to Imus by CNN were not returned.

A CBS spokesman declined comment.

Imus to sue CBS, plots to get back on air

Don Imus is preparing to sue his former employer — and plotting a possible return to radio.

The radio jock, who was fired by CBS for ripping the Rutgers women's basketball team with a racist, sexist insult, has hired Martin Garbus, a top First Amendment lawyer, to help him recoup the $40 million left on his contract.

Imus also has told friends that he's hoping to be back on the radio within months.
