(Undated) -- Al Gore is suing Al Jazeera America. The former vice president has filed suit against the Arab-owned satellite television network, claiming it's trying to cut the agreed-to purchase price of his network, Current TV. Gore made the deal to sell Current TV to Al Jazeera America more than a year and a half ago for half a billion dollars. An attorney for Gore and Current CEO Joel Hyatt says they're asking the court to ensure that Al Jazeera America stops "wrongfully withholding the escrow funds" that Current's former shareholders are owed.
