Two media bigs who teamed up to try to buy The Boston Globe in 2011 are now engulfed in a long and pricey breach of contract dispute, as former Time Inc. CEO Jack Griffin is suing Orange County Register publisher Aaron Kushner for up to $10 million in New York Civil Supreme Court, according to court filings.

Griffin — now part of a local group comprised of cousins and former Globe owners Stephen and Benjamin Taylor hoping to buy the broadsheet — is accusing Kushner of stiffing him on payouts after his company, 2100 LLC, acquired the Orange County Register and six other newspapers last year.
