Clear Channel DJ Hit with $13 M Suit

ROCKVILLE, MD. – Elliott Segal, DJ of the Clear Channel radio show “Elliott in the Morning,” on WWDC-FM, has been sued for $13 million on claims of slander, privacy invasion and other charges.

Plaintiff Walter Edwards, manager of Clear Channel’s Nissan Pavilion, a concert venue, says he acceded to Segal’s request to use the Pavilion to host WWDC’s “Shantytown,” all-night rock concert – provided that concertgoers and promoters abide by state liquor laws. When Segal promoted the event on the air by mentioning it would provide cheap beer, and on the radio station Web site with photos of scantily clad women, Segal said the Virginia ABC warned him against the practice, and he asked Segal to stop it. Segal then slandered him on the air, Edwards says. Edwards says both the Virginia ABC and Aramark, which owns concession rights at the Nissan Pavilion, warned him the concert could be canceled unless the offensive ads stopped. When he passed on those concerns to Segal, Edwards claims, the DJ slandered him on the air by calling him “a pussy,” “a spineless ass,” by claiming falsely that Edwards had canceled the event, by saying he would hold the event on Edwards’ “dead corpse,” by saying, “Edwards sucks donkey dicks,” and that Edwards is “the best reason for a very late, late, late-term abortion.”

During this campaign of broadcast defamation, Edwards claims, an executive with both parties’ employer, Clear Channel, flew into town and fired the plaintiff from his $120,000-a-year job. The exec said the firing was a “simple downsizing,” but Segal used it to further vilify and slander the plaintiff, Edwards says. He says the DJ broadcast these slanders to a large audience on the East Coast. Edwards, represented by Moffett & Junkin of Gaithersburg, Md., in Montgomery County Court, seeks punitive damages.
