Default Rutgers player sues Imus, is this a joke?

Quote:
Rutgers' Player Sues Imus, CBS Radio
August 14, 2007 - 10:44 pm
AP -
A member of the Rutgers women's basketball team sued Don Imus and CBS on Tuesday, claiming the radio personality's sexist and racist comments about the team damaged her reputation.




She's saying his comments ruined her reputation? Is that a joke?


Rutgers Player: Hi, Can I buy some milk?
Store Clerk: Sorry, we have a no "nappy headed hoes" policy.




I don't get this? What is there to sue? What an overblown piece of crap case, and I hope she gets her s**t handed to her in court.

this will completely trivialize the entire situation and any good that may have come out of it

I thought this was over with. I agreed with Imus being fired and apologizing, but this is going too far.

so what happened? one day she shows up at work and finds out she was let go?

"why did you fire me?"
"well when we hired you you didn't disclose you were a nappy headed ho"

i mean how can there be a lawsuit for this, i'd really like to see the actual filing and what they are possibly basing this on

Ruin her reputation?

Watch the defense attorney just conduct a nationwide poll seeing how many Rutgers women's basketball players people can name.

If nobody knows who the @#$% you are, how do you even have a reputation?

hell...if i knew i wasn't going to amount to anything in a professional career, i might use his comments to get me a nice little financial pillow until i figured out that i was going to need to be a real working person like the majority of the rest of america...

just another stupid lawsuit...

Of course most Americans couldn't pick this girl out of her line-up, but her friends, family, and aquantances could. By ruin her reputation, i'm sure she meant among those who knew her pre-Imus.

I don't agree with this lawsuit, simply because I think it's silly and undermines freedom of speech, but to dismiss it because she had no reputation is, in my opinion, short-sighted.

Her name is apparently Kia Vaughn. It kinda sucks, I was hoping she had some "s" in her name so I could have replaced them with "$".

She's a damn good basketball player though.
