Turns out Keith Olbermann isn’t the only one who knows how to file a lawsuit.Just a day after the ex-Current TV host formally sued his former employers, the cable news network is now countersuing Olbermann. 

In brief, the suit accuses Olbermann of breaking his contract with the network. It alleges, among other things, that Olbermann took unauthorised days off and refused to participate in Current’s 2012 caucus and primary coverage before abruptly changing his mind. 

Here’s the full suit, courtesy of Talking Points Memo.
