As Ace likes to say, shit just got real.

Current TV wasted no time filing a countersuit on Friday in its bitter divorce from Keith Olbermann, the anchor who was expected to be the star and foundation of the cable network’s future.
The suit was filed in Superior Court in Los Angeles, as was Mr. Olbermann’s on Thursday. It does not demand $50 million to $70 million in damages as Mr. Olbermann’s did, but like his suit, it is filled with charges and vituperative characterizations of behavior.
In this case, Current accuses Mr. Olbermann of unprofessional conduct including unexcused absences and throwing a glass mug on the set. An e-mail about that incident obtained by The Times cites this as a dangerous incident, stating that the glass shattered and put other employees at risk of being cut or slipping on the water.
