Chris Cuomo Hires Lawyer to File Suit Against CNN For Dismissal

'If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar...'

After being fired by CNN for a presumed violation of journalistic ethics, and possibly sexual harassment, Chris Cuomo didn’t take much time to hire lawyers to hit back at leftist network.

“Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled and debauched brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter,” according to the New York Post.

The four-year deal is worth $18 million in total with $6 million remaining on the last year of the deal, reported Radar Online.

Typically such contracts contain bad acts clauses that gives a company an out in case some sort of criminal or other misconduct by a highly-compensated star made in bad faith causes material harm to the company. And you can’t get much worse in media than the journalistic malfeasance Cuomo committed.

According to the New York Post, insiders at CNN have vowed that they won’t pay Cuomo one single penny in a settlement.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source told the Post.

“CNN has a standard morality clause in their contract that says if the employee does anything of disrepute, they can be immediately fired,” said another source citied by the Post.

According to insiders at the company, it’s not just Cuomo’s acts in defending his then-governor brother from charges of sexual harassment and sexual assault that got him terminated, but a lawsuit that alleged Chris Cuomo had sexually harassed a young coworker that he supervised at CNN.

“A woman who lodged a sexual harassment allegation against former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was ‘disgusted’ by what she saw as his hypocrisy and attempts to discredit women who made similar allegations against his brother, her lawyer said according to KTLA5.

“CNN acted promptly on my client’s complaint and fired Mr. Cuomo,” said the attorney.
