The lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, argued that Fox News retaliated against McHenry after she accused Murdoch, her former Fox Nation co-host and a network contributor, of sexual harassment. It further contended that the probes conducted by outside law firms on behalf of the network were “sham investigations.”
“The last thing I wanted to do was file this lawsuit,” McHenry said in a statement provided by attorney Lisa Bloom’s law firm, which represents her. “But I had to stand up for what’s right for myself and for women.”
In separate statements, Fox News defended its actions and Murdoch denied the allegations.
McHenry’s lawsuit, which seeks monetary damages, alleged that Murdoch displayed “volatile and unpredictable behavior” at work and started sending her sexually suggestive text messages in October 2018.
You have to believe this is going to be settled out of court. I would imagine that FOX News doesn’t want this to end up in court.
