"Men’s college basketball referee John Higgins is suing Kentucky Sports Radio, accusing the show’s hosts of sharing his personal information and encouraging angry Kentucky fans to come after him for his officiating"

Higgins claims that [his roofing company] Weatherguard received more than 3,000 calls in the two days after the game, 75 percent of them from Kentucky area codes. Some individual numbers called as many as 40 to 50 times in one day, blocking actual business calls from getting through, per the lawsuit. Meanwhile, a flood of negative online reviews pushed Weatherguard from being the top-rated roofing company in Omaha to the last-ranked business in all categories.
