Fox May Be Subject of Government Investigation Over Ailes Sexual Harassment Claims

An attorney for a former Fox host says he received a subpoena from federal prosecutors, while a company spokesperson acknowledges months of conversations with the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Brian Lewis' Lawyer: Roger Ailes and Fox Have 'A Lot' to Fear

"I have just been retained and am still plotting our course of action," Burstein says in a statement. "But two things are very clear to me. First, Brian Lewis no longer has any confidentiality obligation to Newscorp [sic] or Roger Ailes because of the false and malicious statements made by Fox to date. Second, Roger Ailes and Newscorp [sic] have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis."

Lawyer Alleges Fox News Is Under Federal Investigation Related To Sexual Harassment

Suspended Host's Lawsuit Casts Shadow Over Fox News' New President

The greatest threat to that continuity could lie in the lawsuit filed by suspended Fox News host Andrea Tantaros, who has sued Fox, Ailes and a raft of current Fox News executives, including Shine. In court papers to be filed Wednesday, her lawyers offer fresh support for her allegations. Especially notable are the elements involving Shine and other current Fox News executives who Tantaros accuses of acting to shut down her complaints.

"Fox News masquerades as defender of traditional family values," Tantaros' legal team wrote in its colorful initial suit, "but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny."

TV stars settle 'six-figure' hacking claims

NGN has now settled around 1,000 civil claims for phone-hacking.

If the cost estimate for a single claimant of £450,000 to £500,0000 given in court is typical, then the publisher is likely to have paid in the region of half a billion pounds in costs alone.

Compensation payments would run into tens of millions more.

Mr Justice Mann, sitting at the Rolls Building on February 6, has said the company’s legal tactic contravenes rules governing civil court actions.

Giving News UK until Easter to defend the allegations - either by admitting them, denying them, or explaining why it can’t do either

Prince Harry Set to Claim Princess Diana was Hacked by The Sun AND The Mirror - which then 'Covered Up'

  • Prince Harry case to claim newspapers paid shadowy Privates Eyes to snoop on Princess Diana and her associates - while editors pretended to be on her side
  • Rupert Murdoch’s News UK CEO Rebekah Brooks WILL be dragged back into the hacking scandal
  • Brooks was the editor of The Sun while hacking was alleged to be rife - and headed Murdoch’s company during alleged major cover-up of phone hacking
  • Duke of Sussex is likely to characterise Mirror and Sun executives as guilty participants who sought meticulously to cover their tracks for over two decades
  • Allegations include sophisticated concealment and destruction of evidence, involving top in-house lawyers and board members
