Fox News Faces ‘Salacious’ Lawsuit Says Gloria Allred

Fox News is facing what attorney Gloria Allred calls a “salacious” lawsuit by Fox host Andrea Tantaros.

That lawsuit filed Monday in New York Supreme Court declares that “Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.”

Allred says the lawsuit is unusual from a legal point of view.

“Fox has many if not all its employees under an employment contract that ordinarily requires arbitration. She was in an arbitration over her claim. Her lawyer claims in the lawsuit, which I’ve read in the complaint, that somehow Fox breached the arbitration. He then goes on to talk about how much was offered in settlement – this is what he was alleging. He goes on to talk about a number of details that ordinarily you would never hear about in a lawsuit.”

Allred says details rarely come out in these kinds of cases.

“Ordinarily an employment agreement not only that arbitration is required but that it has to be confidential.”

Allred says if an employer fails to cope with rampant sexual harassment, then it faces a lot of exposure.

“But to prove sexual harassment you have to prove its either severe or pervasive.”

Allred was a guest on 790 KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning Show with Doug McIntyre and Terri-Rae Elmer.
