Lulli 2, WNEM 0

Post by autolab » Sat Apr 13, 2019 2:04 am

Good for former TV5 reporter Nick Lulli who stuck to his guns and won a lawsuit versus parent company Meredith Broadcasting.

I never understood why WNEM would sue a reporter who did not want to work there. Non-competes and lengthy contracts are archaic and need to be done away with. Why don't stations just try to treat their employees well and maybe they'll just stick around without the threat of stupid lawsuits like Nick had to endure??

Technically, it’s not a “win” if one of the parties drops the lawsuit. Did Lulli win the counter claim?

Technically, that is true.

It’s truly unbelievable that a company that doesn’t want someone, will sue them when they leave. It’s like an abusive relationship!

I’ll never understand why stations go after people who don’t want to be there.

Thank you for your support.

It’s also even more confusing when you tell the station you are leaving the state for personal/medical/whatever reasons, and have NO PLANS to compete against the company.

I never in a million years wanted to counter-sue and have to discuss the bad situation there. That’s what I told them. I said I wanted to just walk away and I won’t talk about it. But they chose otherwise.

Remember when I was attacked by that guy? I was sent out there alone, directed by Ian, with no photographer or other person to back me up.

By the way, there’s someone at the station who in their deposition certainly didn’t help me. Dare I say, they weren’t truthful in their sworn deposition? When confronted with their own words, they changed their story in their deposition. This hurt me very much, on a personal level. I’m so shocked and disappointed in this person.

Nick - TV5 News is a complete and total revolving door cesspool. I’m assuming that the only reason that people watch them is because of their past reputation and heritage. You did the best thing possible in leaving there as they’ve gotten even worse.

Btw - why do I have a sneaking suspicion that the person who’s untruthful there is their H*** prima-donna Cher lover?

Nobody has run to anyone’s aid and it disgusts me.When people are shown the door, sued for simply leaving, demoted to weekends, etc., where is the “all for one”?

Is there no longer a union there? Because it certainly isn’t sticking up for anyone!

By the way, you should see in my deposition where they asked why I didn’t sue buzzboard users for criticizing me. I’m not joking. This was after I amended the lawsuit to include defamation when I found out they were using a possibly altered version of a package I did in a “how not to be a reporter” video AFTER I counter-sued them.
