Chris Cuomo was fired from CNN in December 2021 following reports that indicated that he aided in the defence of his brother’s sexual harassment allegations that led to his resignation. Three months after his unceremonious firing, the former ‘Prime Time’ host, has now waged war with the network, seeking $125 million in damages for his termination.
“As a result of Turner’s indefensible choice to unceremoniously fire him, Cuomo has been damaged in countless ways, Cuomo has had his journalistic integrity unjustifiably smeared, making it difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future and damaging him in amounts exceeding $125 million, which includes not only the remaining salary owed under the Agreement but future wages lost as a result of CNN’s efforts to destroy his reputation in violation of the Agreement,” the filing adds. “Cuomo now seeks to recover the full measure of his damages against Turner and CNN,” -read an arbitration demand filed by one of Cuomo’s attorneys.
