LOL! Cuomo Gears Up For Massive Lawsuit- Details
CNN's former prize anchor plans to sue his former boss to payout the remainder of his contract. This was announced after Cuomo became officially unemployed. The defamed anchor walked away from his radio show after an investigation against his brother, former Govenor Andrew Cuomo, found that Chris used his position at CNN to dig up dirt on his brother's accusers.
“The way my time ended at CNN was hard. While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult. So, right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next,” wrote Cuomo. “That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show.”
The statement did not immediately specify whether leaving the radio show had been his decision or the network’s. One commentator referred to his statement as “[t]he old I’m being fired but they’re allowing me to make it look like a resignation apology.”
“I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there. I also want to express my sincere appreciation for my loyal listeners. I will miss our conversations a great deal,” Cuomo continued.
“[B]ut I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future,” Chris Cuomo concluded.

In a separate statement, Cuomo whined about his former job at CNN:
"This is now how I wanted my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the teams at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN's #1 show in the most competitive time slot. I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work."
NOW—As I mentioned above, Cuomo is prepping to sue his former employer. His goal is to get the $18 million left on his contract at the network.
According to the New York Post Cuomo 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 brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.
His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.
CNN has already committed to not paying crooked Cuomo a dime.
