Ho, ho, ho?



Being called a prostitute was, classically, libel per se for a female plaintiff. What about being called one of a group of nappy-headed hos? Don Imus is about to find out whether this term, used by him, has a literal significance.

Rutgers basketball player Kia Vaughn filed her suit the same day that Imus settled with CBS in a deal that precludes his threatened $120 million breach-of-contract suit.

Live by the lawsuit, die by one, I guess....
