A New Hampshire man is suing Howie Carr, accusing the conservative radio host of violating a no-contact agreement and attempting to hack into his Uber account.
Jared Goodell of Keene, who according to social media posts served as operations manager for the Howie Carr Show from 2016 until February of this year, recently filed a complaint in federal court in Concord. He’s seeking damages of more than $800,000.
Goodell alleges that the Massachusetts-based syndicated host and columnist, as well as his wife Kathy Carr, violated the terms of an agreement reached in March between the parties. Included in that agreement was a paragraph stipulating that “Howie Carr, Kathy Carr or any of their family members will not communicate with Mr. Goodell,” and that a breach of the agreement would result in a payment of $50,000.
Goodell claims he has received at least 14 emails from Carr since March.
He also alleges that Carr “attempted to access Goodell’s personal electronic account with Uber,” the ride-sharing company. According to the filing, Goodell contends the account was created before his employment began. The court filings show that Carr believes it was a company account.
Lawyers for both Goodell and Carr declined to comment on the suit. Carr’s attorney has notified the court of his intentions to file a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
Goodell previously anchored his own talk radio show on WFEA based in Manchester. The same station carries the Howie Carr Show on weekday afternoons.
