Dr. Laura Makes Nice
Controversial radio talker Laura Schlessinger has settled — for an undisclosed sum — a $6 million slander lawsuit filed against her by the owner of a Southern California surf shop, says her lawyer. Tom Moore, owner of Beach Access, was accused by Dr. Laura on the air of selling a skateboarding magazine (Big Brother Skateboarder, published by “Hustler” publisher Larry Flynt) that she called pornographic. Accused by Dr. Laura of intentionally trying to harm children, Moore sued Schlessinger, then she sued him — claiming that he verbally attacked her in public. Now it’s all settled amicably, Schlessinger’s attorney, Gerard P. Fox, told the Los Angeles Daily Journal, though he didn’t spill the terms of the deal.
