Olbermann sues Current TV days after firing

Television personality Keith Olbermann sued his former employer, Current TV, on Thursday, claiming breach-of-contract, unfair dealing and disparagement in an action filed in California Superior Court.

Current TV's co-founders, including former Vice President Al Gore, ousted Olbermann (pictured) last week.

"This action is necessary as Current has repeatedly and willfully breached its written agreement with Olbermann," the lawsuit said, "often continuing to do so after receiving specific notices to cure such breaches.

"In its most recent breach, Current unilaterally, and without cause, terminated its Agreement with Olbermann. Current's sudden and public termination of Olbermann was the latest in a series of increasingly erratic and unprofessional actions undertaken by Current's senior management," the lawsuit said.

    It appears as though these blogs are getting worse with trolls and whatever... Mom, I know you are just playing around. To my dumb troll, do you think that my mother and I don't talk? Why would someone say that I would be home for Easter? I am just thrilled to bits that you find me so interesting. Just knock it off. Since I do not know who is real(whatever that might mean) or who is not, I will not send my best wishes. No wonder our country is such a joke over here where culture, manners, and authenticity mean something.
