Shamed broadcaster DON IMUS will no longer be sued for slander and defamation by a member of the Rutgers University Women's Basketball Team. Imus was axed from CBS Radio earlier this year (Apr07) after he called the mostly-black team "nappy-headed hos" on his radio show, Imus In The Morning. Kia Vaughn filed a lawsuit in New York last month (14Aug07) alleging slander and defamation of character - but has dropped the case in a bid to pursue a career in journalism. A spokeswoman for Vaughn's attorney, Richard Ancowitz, says, "Her strong commitments have influenced her decision to withdraw the lawsuit at this time," the statement said. Imus' lawyer Martin Garbus confirmed his client had paid no money to Vaughn.
