Ghomeshi drops his $55 Million CBC lawsuit

November 25, 2014

A spokesman for CBC says former Q host Jian Ghomeshi has withdrawn his $55 million lawsuit against the CBC. The deal was reached last Friday (November 21).


Spokesman Chuck Thompson said, “The parties have reached a settlement; the lawsuit has been withdrawn but it still needs to be formalized through a court order.”

Ghomeshi must pay $18,000 in legal costs to the CBC.

Ghomeshi filed the lawsuit the day after he was terminated by the CBC.
