MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN Corp. has filed a P486 million counter-claim before the Quezon City court against comedian and television host Willie Revillame, who had sought judicial confirmation of the rescission of his contract with the network.

In its 139-page answer with compulsory counter-claim, the media conglomerate said Revillame should pay P426,917,646.96 million as liquidated damages for breaching his contract with ABS-CBN.

The network is also seeking P20 million each for moral damages, exemplary damages and attorney's fees and litigation expenses.
