Stern was suing producer Mike Fleiss, cousin of Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss.

From the Daily News, 4/30/03:

In Emmy magazine, Mike Fleiss “cites Stern’s work as an influence on his own and says he was inspired to get into TV after seeing Stern’s series on WWOR/ Ch. 9.  ‘It was so irreverent, so brilliant, so satirical,’ Fleiss says in the magazine. ‘That viewing experience changed my life. I knew where I needed to go.’ “
