Fox Settles Racial and Gender Discrimination Lawsuits for $10 Million

HeadlineMay 16, 2018
H7 fox news pays discrimination suit

The parent company of Fox News has reached a $10 million settlement over a series of racial and gender discrimination lawsuits involving current and former employees of the network. The settlement includes a lawsuit, filed by Fox anchor Kelly Wright and other employees, alleging “abhorrent, intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination.” On Tuesday, Wright announced he was leaving the network, and the settlement included a buyout of Wright’s contract. The $10 million settlement also resolves multiple gender discrimination lawsuits, including one in which a former reporter for Fox 5 accused former Fox News chair Roger Ailes of sexual harassment and of turning her down for a job because he didn’t think she would have sex with him.
