Star Files $55M Defamation Suit Against NY Councilman
Former WWPR-FM (Power 105.1)/New York morning host Star (aka Troi Torain) has filed a $55 million defamation lawsuit against New York City Councilman John C. Liu. He claims Liu defamed his reputation by labeling him a "pedophile" and demanding that he be fired following his May 3 broadcast when he made on-air threats against rival D.J. Envy's wife and two children.
Late last month, a judge has dismissed criminal charges against Star, as long as he can stay out of further trouble for six months. He was arrested in May on charges of harassment and endangering the welfare of a child. Star was fired May 10 from WWPR then arrested after part of his on-air tirade included threats to sexually abuse and urinate on the 4-year-old daughter of Envy.
According to the suit, "No reasonable person or listener could have believed (Torain's) statements to be an actual threat when viewed in their entire context." With that in mind, Star wants Liu to pay for calling him a "sick racist pedophile," a "lunatic" and a "criminal," among other names, in public statements and on cable TV shows.
Meanwhile, Star's mother and retired schoolteacher, Hannah Hightower, has filed an $11 million against Emmis Radio's WQHT-FM (Hot 97)/New York claiming that morning personality Miss Jones slandered her during her on-air attacks on her son. (08-03-06)


OKAY SO FIRST OFF, I WAS NEVER A FAN OF THE SHOW. IT WAS SYNDICATED IN THE GEORGIA MARKET. ALL THEY TALKED ABOUT WAS STUFF IN NEW YORK. IT'S FINE IF YOU'RE IN NEW YORK BUT ANYWHERE ELSE....???? WHO CARES!!! UNTIL, I HEARD STAR MAKING THE COMMENTS THAT HE MADE. I WISH I KNEW HOW TO POST THE AUDIO. TO ACTUALLY HEAR IT LEAVES YOU SPEECHLESS. FOR SOMEONE TO HAVE THAT KIND OF HATE OR TO EVEN THINK OF DOING THE THINGS HE MENTIONED TO AN INNOCENT 4YR OLD IS JUST.....DISGUSTING. I'M GLAD HE WAS FIRED AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW A LEGAL JUSTICE SYSTEM WITH AUDIO AND TRANSCRIPTS AT HAND COULD NOT BUILD A CASE AGAINST THIS GUY. HE'S HEARTLESS AND HE SHOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO LIVE THIS DOWN. NOW, HE HAS THE AUDACITY TO SUE!? HE MENTIONED PEEING IN THE MOUTH OF A 4YR OLD!!! HELLO!!!! WHAT DOES THAT SAY TO YOU?!! SICK BASTARD IS WHAT HE IS. JOKE OR NOT, YOU DON'T SAY THINGS LIKE THAT OR DO THINGS LIKE THAT. DID YOU GUYS HEAR IT? WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Basically, Star is an asshole. Plain and simple. The 2 radio stations up in NYC allowed this idiot to continue to say these stupid things on the air and he kept pushing the envelope until it got to a point where they couldn't take it any more and then they fired him. But the truth is he should've been fired a long time ago. After that stupid ass skit he did on Aaliyah shortly after her death, he should've been fired then. He's just a stupid 40 plus year old idiot trying to be like Howard Stern. But Stern is a much better shock jock than Star could ever be. He's an insult to the race and I hope he never gets to be on radio again.

I live in NYC. I'm not a fan of Star (Thank God for Steve Harvey in the morning), but I actually caught his tirad live that morning. I don't know what kind of creative liscence his contract called for but, somebody should have pull the plug on him. Even though this happened on one day, the entire battle between Ms. Jones (who used to be a sidekick of Star's) and Star had been going on for months. I believe that Star is trying to hold on to what's left of his 15 minutes of fame. This star is definately fading.
