Bill O'Reilly, Fox News Sued for Disparaging Female Accuser

Bill O'Reilly, Fox News Sued for Disparaging Female Accuser Bill O'Reilly, Fox News Sued for Disparaging Female Accuser

A woman who entered a confidential settlement agreement with Bill O'Reilly in 2002 while at Fox News charged in a lawsuit Monday that the "serial abuser and coward" smeared her as a liar, breaking the terms of their deal. "She was forced out of her job at Fox News and paid a settlement because of his mistreatment".

If Fox News Channel thought it was finally past the wounds of Roger Ailes reign and Bill O'Reilly's behavior at the cable newer, a new lawsuit today kicked that notion to the curb.

Rachel Witlieb Bernstein, one of the many women that settled harassment claims with Fox News's former primetime titan, was a junior producer at the network when she claimed O'Reilly harassed her - and settled in 2002 for an undisclosed sum.

O'Reilly was forced out of Fox News in April following a series of revelations about alleged sexual harassment and abuse.

Bernstein also took issue with a Fox News statement claiming that no employees had ever previously raised complaints to management about O'Reilly's behavior.

Bernstein is represented by Neil Mullin and Nancy Erika Smith of Smith Mullin.

The complaint, filed in NY federal court, also addresses statements from Fox News this past April.

"These false statements portrayed plaintiff in a false light and disparaged her character, in fact calling her a liar and an extortionist", the lawsuit states.

"Knowing Ms. Bernstein and O'Reilly's other victims are afraid to speak out because he and Fox forced them to sign non-disclosure agreements, O'Reilly and Fox have made false and disparaging claims", the statement said.

"They should release all victims from their NDAs and let the truth out", Mullin said in the statement to the Times.

O'Reilly's lawyers did not respond to a request for comment.

Bernstein is also suing the defendants for breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, as well as targeting O'Reilly for allegedly tortiously interfering with Bernstein's settlement agreement with Fox News. Under a flood of sexual harassment allegations that he still denies despite several settlements and accusations, O'Reilly was pink slipped by FNC after over two decades on April 19 this year. "The statement by Fox News also violated the Confidentiality Clause in the Agreement".
