Fighting words

The war between Al Gore's Current TV and fired host Keith Olbermann keeps getting nastier. On Thursday, Olbermann filed a $70-million breach-of-contract lawsuit against Current, which hired him as its star last year but dismissed him in late March after months of turmoil. In a court filing Friday, the network attacked the liberal opinion-maker as "arrogant" and "immature" and said that he had failed to show up for nearly half of his recent workdays.Jason Kempin / Getty Images
