Al Gore gets scammed?
Current TV co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have launched a fraud and breach-of-contract lawsuit claiming that Al Jazeera is withholding money from its $500 million purchase of the cable news network.He's super serial!
The complaint was filed under seal in the Delaware Court of Chancery.
Former U.S. vice president Al Gore is being represented by David Boies, the attorney who memorably represented him in the 2000 battle over a Florida election recount.
"Al Jazeera America wants to give itself a discount on the purchase price that was agreed to nearly two years ago," says Boies in a statement. "We are asking the Court to order Al Jazeera America to stop wrongfully withholding the escrow funds that belong to Current's former shareholders."
