“Disgraced media mogul Les Moonves is threatening to sue CBS,” reports the New York Post.
The story continues, “In what’s expected to amount to a breach of contract suit, Moonves’ lawyers are preparing to allege that leaks to the New York Times [last] week about CBS’ pending investigation into Moonves broke a confidentiality agreement and sullied the exec’s reputation, sources close to Moonves said.”
The Post story, written by Alexandra Steigrad, adds that with the [CBS] report’s confidential findings now public “lawyers for Moonves, who has said he believed the sexual encounters were consensual, believe they’ve now got a foot in the door ‘to challenge the process legally,’ the source said.”
At stake is a retirement package of $120 million. CBS needs to determine if Moonves will receive all of it, part of it, or none of it.
