I just saw Imus' attorney being interviewed on television. Imus is about to sue CBS for $120 million. It sounds like he has a very good case too.

Apparently, Imus was put under a $40 million dollar contract recently that was very carefully considered by both sides. It contained acknowledgements of Imus' audacious style and stipulated a process for dealing with comments that might cross the line. There was a delay capability implemented where he could be censored, and he could be fired within five days of causing a controversy.

CBS didn't censor him, and they didn't fire him until 14 days after the incident. It looks like Imus isn't the only one who blew it. CBS blew it too. It looks like CBS will have to pay for its mistake.
