Former HSN lawyer sues over firing

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The former in-house lawyer for Home Shopping Network Inc. claims in a lawsuit he was fired over attempts to disclose financial improprieties at the company.

Former Home Shopping general counsel Allen P. Allweiss alleged in the lawsuit that company exex and others schemed to profit at the expense of shareholders.

Lawsuit seeks nearly $ 1 million in HSN stock, stock options and $ 2 million in damages.
