LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Spanish-language radio personality Piolin has been ordered to pay more than $100,000 in legal fees for six people he targeted in a failed lawsuit.
Lawyers for the six say a Los Angeles judge awarded attorneys' fees Tuesday.
Piolin, whose real name is Eddie Sotelo, had a long-running radio show called "Por la Manana" on Univision until it was abruptly cancelled without explanation last year.
Sotelo later sued six former Univision employees, alleging they engaged in a $4.9 million extortion plot and false accusations of sexual harassment.
That suit was thrown out in March.
Sotelo, whose nickname means "Tweety Bird," now has a program on SiriusXM satellite radio.
A call to the attorney who handled his lawsuit, Jeffrey Spitz, wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
