Keith Olbermann sues Current TV for breach of contract

TV commentator may seek as much as $70 million

Al Gore and his buddies at Current TV are in an unprecedented position—they’re the first people in history to be sued by a $10 million chandelier.

Yesterday, Keith Olbermann—aka the $10 million chandelier—filed suit against the owners of the small progressive public affairs channel, claiming they breached his contract when they fired him last week. He says the network, which reportedly gave him a five-year, $50 million contract, owes him between $50 million and $70 million in cash and equity compensation.
