A potential settlement of three lawsuits filed against Pacifica Foundation, the parent company of Berkeley radio station KPFA, was jeopardized this week when a KPFA talk show host disclosed the agreement’s details to a local newspaper.

“All I can say is that right now, there is no settlement,” said a Pacifica attorney, Robert Darby, a Los Angeles partner from Houston-based Fulbright & Jaworski.

The three suits alleged that Pacifica’s board subverted its bylaws in order to shift the organization’s stations away from their left-leaning format to one with a more moderate tone. For example, the foundation yanked Amy Goodman’s talk show “Democracy Now” off all its affiliates except KPFA and a station in Fresno.
