Although I have been personally involved in lawsuits where one public official sued another, I think it is unseemly for public officials to sue each other. While disagreements are sure to arise, I think public officials owe it to their constituents to try to resolve disputes short of nasty, expensive litigation. Mediation is the key. Rather than talking past each other in newspaper headlines, mediation forces the parties to at least get in the same room and talk to each other. This has the immediate effect of lessening the posturing. Encourage your public officials to mediate rather than litigate.
