Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has filed an arbitration claim seeking $125 million claiming that he was wrongfully terminated and for damages against his “journalistic integrity.”

“The legal action filed today makes clear that CNN wrongfully terminated Chris and further violated the express terms of his employment agreement by allowing its employees to disparage him. Chris is owed a full apology from those responsible,” Cuomo's attorney Bryan Freedman said in a statement.

Cuomo was fired in December for his involvement with his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who faced sexual misconduct allegations.

“[Chris] 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,” read the court document, which was obtained by Deadline.

Along with his termination from CNN, the longtime anchor lost his book deal and stepped down from his SiriusXM radio show.

The lawsuit claims CNN was informed of Cuomo’s involvement and only fired him due to public pressure.

"It should, by now, be obvious to everyone that Chris Cuomo did not lie to CNN about helping his brother," Freedman said in the statement.

“In fact, as the limited information released from WarnerMedia’s investigation makes clear, CNN’s highest-level executives not only knew about Chris’s involvement in helping his brother but also actively assisted the Governor, both through Chris and directly themselves,” the statement read.
