Adam Carolla Lawsuit: Radio Personality Sued By Friend AgainBy: Zach Walton - June 4, 2013
Adam Carolla is now embroiled in another lawsuit being brought against him by the friend who previously brought a lawsuit against the Internet and radio personality.
Reuters is reporting that Donny Misraje is suing Carolla for a few pictures included in his memoir “Not Taco Bell Material.” The pictures of Carolla were allegedly taken by Misraje back in the 80s, and he is claiming copyright on the photos.
The lawsuit is calling for Carolla and his publisher, Crown Publishing, to pay compensation for the books sold thus far. He’s also asking for compensatory and punitive damages as a result of copyright infringement. Finally, he asks that all unsold copies of the memoir be destroyed.
A previous lawsuit brought against Carolla claims that he misled Misraje into quitting his job. The two were to partner up on Carolla’s successful podcast, but Miraje claims that Carolla never paid him for his work. The podcast is incredibly popular and is listened to by millions of people. In fact, it has earned the distinction of being the “most downloaded podcast” according to the Guinness World Records.
Carolla and Misraje have been friends for over 30 years, but the lawsuits are very recent. We can only hope that the two can work out their differences and keep on producing quality comedy content.
