Fox News settled a lawsuit filed by a female radio editor who said a male colleague used sexist language to refer to her and other women and mocked her disability, according to a judge’s order dismissing the case ( Lee v. Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. , S.D.N.Y., No. 1:17-cv-03835, order 8/21/17 ).
A July 2016 sexual harassment lawsuit that former Fox News television host Gretchen Carlson filed against then-CEO Roger Ailes kicked off a flurry of complaints against the company and top executives by reporters and administrative staffers. The complaints led to the departure of Bill O’Reilly, the network’s highest-rated anchor, and co-president Bill Shine.
Terms of the settlement weren’t disclosed, Judge Gregory H. Woods of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York wrote in the Aug. 21 order.
Douglas Wigdor, a lawyer for editor Kathleen Lee, declined to comment to Bloomberg News Aug. 21. A Fox News spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to Bloomberg BNA’s request for comment.
Wigdor, Jeanne Christensen, and Michael Willemin with Wigdor LLP in New York City represented Lee.
Andrew Levander, Linda Goldstein, Matthew Mazur, Nicolle Jacoby, and Lindsay Ray of Dechert LLP in New York represented Twenty-First Century Fox Inc., which operates Fox News.
