A former CNN TV producer filed in Atlanta a $106-million wrongful-termination lawsuit against the network, which fired her after it retracted a story alleging U.S. forces used nerve gas on American defectors, the AP reports. April Oliver filed a similar suit in May in Washington. Her lawyer says Oliver’s employment agreement specified that any suit be filed in Atlanta, where CNN is based. The suit alleges defamation, fraud and conspiracy. CNN declined to comment on the suit.
