Her suit names both Fox News and O'Reilly as respondents and looks for harms to be resolved at trial for break of agreement, slander and different cases. Bernstein reached a settlement with Fox in 2002 after those repeated complaints. The statement by Fox News is deliberately misleading and in breach of Fox's agreement not to disparage Ms. Bernstein.
After that story ran, O'Reilly said in a statement to the Times that he is "vulnerable to lawsuits from individuals who want me to pay them to avoid negative publicity", and claimed that "no one has ever filed a complaint" to human resources or called the anonymous hotline about him in his more than 20 years at Fox. She was forced out of her job at Fox News and paid a settlement because of his mistreatment.
Rachel Witlieb Bernstein's attorneys filed a lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY against O'Reilly and his former employer, Fox News, for breach of contract and defamation. In her lawsuit, Bernstein pushed back against O'Reilly's narrative. The article said that the former host "stormed into the newsroom and screamed at a young producer, according to current and former employees, some of whom witnessed the incident".
The lawsuit, which has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of NY, states, "Mr. O'Reilly is the liar". None of the others have said anything publicly about their claims.
O'Reilly made several statements to other media outlets, telling The Hollywood Reporter that "no one was mistreated on my watch", which portrayed the plaintiff as a liar, the suit alleges.
O'Reilly was sacked on April 19 from Fox News after a 20-year run at the cable network.
Bernstein argued that all this violates the non-disparagement and confidentiality clauses in her settlement. "This is false. In fact, he is a serial abuser and Ms. Bernstein's complaints about him were far from extortionate".
Bernstein said there was no hot line in existence at the time of her employment. She's represented by the same attorneys at Smith Mullin who represented Gretchen Carlson in the retaliation lawsuit against Fox News.
O'Reilly was constrained out of Fox News in April following a progression of disclosures about affirmed lewd behavior and manhandle.
