The suit, which was filed in March 2011, claimed that Sirius owed Stern additional stock after he helped exceed subscriber targets that totaled more than $300 million as a result of their merger with XM.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Kapnick ruled that the "the clear, unambiguous language" of their 2004 agreement didn't anticipate counting new subscribers via the merger, which lead to the case's dismissal.

Kapnick added that had all the performance awards been triggered, Sirius could have owed One Twelve, Stern's production company, another $300 million and his agent, Don Buchwald, another $30 million.
