Report: Olbermann to Sue Current TV

Keith Olbermann, who lasted less than a year at Current TV before being kicked off the payroll, is suing his former employer. Olbermann’s attorney, Patricia Glaser, said the suit will be filed sometime Thursday. Known for being difficult to work with, Olbermann had signed a five-year, $50 million contract with the struggling network. Current executives, including former Vice President Al Gore, decided to end the relationship because they felt Olbermann no longer represented the values of the company.
