T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach's lawyers plan to slap down a lawsuit if ABC decides to fire the Good Morning America costars from their roles at the network after their highly-publicized affair, sources confirmed.

The dynamic duo is ready to retaliate, as Robach, 49, hired Hollywood hot shot attorney Andrew Brettler and Holmes, 45, teamed up with lawyer Eric George, who has previously represented a number of celebrities in court.

The potential pair was left feeling frustrated after ABC News President Kim Godwin stripped the stars from their GMA anchor positions on December 5, 2022.

While both Holmes and Robach's lawyers are determined to receive answers as to what caused the sudden switch in the situation, George has specifically prepared a lawsuit on the grounds of race — depending on the the fate of Holmes' career at the network, insiders revealed to a news publication.

"Has ABC ever used the morals or conduct clause to fire or discipline two consenting adults at equal levels when both were white?" sources with direct knowledge revealed of what question the lawyers plan to pose if push comes to shove.

The insiders continued to point out that this is the first instance in which ABC has ever used their morality clause against two of their employees, noting how this specific scenario involves that of a Black man and a white woman anchor.
