Fox Rape Channel Settles More Than 20 Workplace Lawsuits, From Sexual Harassment To Racial Discrimination

fox-sued
For the past couple years, 21st Century Fox has been haunted by hostile workplace and gender- and racial- discrimination claims in the wake of reports concerning alleged misbehavior from former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes. The company has now reached a major settlement that could resolve nearly all — if not all — pending lawsuits on this front. Fox’s potential settlement is a bit unusual because the deal is being put together with Douglas Wigdor, an attorney who represents plaintiffs across many different lawsuits. And not all of Wigdor’s clients are ready to drop claims. hannity-snowflakesAmong Wigdor’s cases against Fox is a discrimination suit in federal court from a local television reporter named Lidia Curanaj, who accuses the disgraceful company of fostering “misogynistic culture” and alleges she didn’t get a job at Fox News when she wouldn’t submit sexually to Ailes. Wigdor is also representing more than a dozen women in New York state court.

 

Others included defamation claims, such as the one from Rod Wheeler, who investigated the death of former DNC staffer Seth Rich, plus retaliation and discrimination claims  from Fox News radio correspondents Jessica Golloher and Kathleen Lee.

Fox had no comment.
