A counter-suit against conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren was filed Monday in a Texas court by Glenn Beck and his media outlet The Blaze, just over a week after she filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against them.

In their filing, Beck and The Blaze alleged that Lahren had mistreated staff members and violated her contract’s terms, CNN reports. According to the suit, the company “had employment issues with Lahren for over a year.”

The program was removed from lineup at The Blaze last month following her appearance on ABC’s The View, in which she appeared to have made pro-choice comments. She subsequently filed her wrongful termination suit.
