She once sued KRSK-FM, a Portland, Oregon, radio station. She was the subject of scathing editorials in Portland as a result of her court action. KRSK had given itself the nickname "Rosie 105", a reference to Portland's nickname, "the Rose City". O'Donnell claimed that she owned the name Rosie, and that the station was trying to cash in on her celebrity nickname. The court found in favor of the radio station.
