You remember the saying about not learning from the past. Maybe Pacifica will be condemned to repeat it...

But in this case Pacifica did break with its past behavior. Lawsuits were referred to as the severance pay/pension plan for clods fired for just cause in Pacifica. A whole long line of idiots filed lawsuits against Pacifica, and then got their lawsuits settled out of court. The plaintiffs and their attorneys knew that all they had to do was to file suit and Pacifica would fold, giving them plenty of easy money.
But for the Bernard White lawsuit it was handled differently. Bernard White clearly thought that he was going to take a ride on the same gravy train. Didn't work out. His lawyers, looking for a quick and easy buck, didn't get paid off either.
So this is a case of doing something different, and right, but having it cost a lot of money too. The big screwup was by the lawyers whom Pacifica had hired allowing Bernard White's lawsuit to name Steve Brown as having an ownership interest in Pacifica.
I hope that Pacifica continues to fight these sorts of phony baloney lawsuits, that's the only way to insure that they stop, at long last.
My question is why isn't Pacifica suing Bernard White in an effort to get back the money it spent on this frivolous lawsuit?
Yes, why? If you get a frivolous lawsuit tossed out you should get your legal costs reimbursed. Oh, wait. Through it all Bernard White is an angel. Hey, he's even so celestial he gets to come back on the air. Can't someone on the PNB make a motion to have him banned from all Pacifica properties and air? Should I even bother to be logical?
