Keith Olbermann Is Filing His Lawsuit Against Current TV…TODAY!

Keith Olbermann filing lawsuit

Why would anyone buy a $10 million chandelier? Because it can talk, host a television show, then sue you after it's fired!

Keith "The $10 Million Lighting Fixture" Olbermann wasn't kidding about taking action against Al Gore's Current TV for his early dismissal. His attorney, Patricia Glaser, has revealed that the anchor is filing a lawsuit against his former employer…TODAY!

We're not sure about the inside details that will make or break this case for the disgruntled newsman, but he's got good representation. Glaser helped Conan O'Brien take home a $45 million settlement from NBC during his Tonight Show debacle.

When are both parties going to wake up and realize they are just being Punk'd by Ashton Kutcher Justin Bieber?

Gore V Olbermann

Wow, nobody really likes each other over there! It's no wonder Olbermann got fired — both sides are being nasty, and Al Gore was in the position to fire!

We first brought you the news of the firing, along with Current's reason of a lack of "values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty" as the reasons.

And then Olberman fired back with a long-winded rant, which you can read here, which ended up saying he was going to sue them all.

Now we're hearing more as to why he was let go:

'Management claimed that the former MSNBC host did not fulfill his duties with press and marketing events and missed 19 days of work in January and February.'

We'd say missing obligations and 19 days of work is absolutely grounds to fire you!

Wonder how that'll go down in court!
