LOS ANGELES (AP) - Current TV has fired back at Keith Olbermann
by countersuing its former host and asking a judge to rule he is not entitled to any more money from the network.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in Los Angeles, a day after Olbermann sued his former employer seeking more than $50 million in damages.

The complaint rejects Olbermann's claims that the network engaged in shoddy production and states it paid the "Countdown" host the most he received in his career.

The filing accuses Olbermann of "an utter disregard" for his contract. The suit claims OIbermann's claims have damaged Current TV and it will lose money as a result of having to firing him.

The network is seeking unspecified damages.

A phone message for Olbermann's attorney Patricia Glaser was not
immediately returned.
