THE NEW YORK TIMES REPORTS ON FOX NEWS RACE & GENDER DISCRIMINATION LAWSUITS FILED BY WIGDOR LLP

On May 15, 2018, The New York Times reported that Wigdor LLP reached a settlement agreement with 21st Century Fox on behalf of multiple plaintiffs alleging race and gender discrimination at Fox News.

The lawsuits included a race discrimination class action lawsuit filed on behalf of 11 current and former Fox News employees who alleged that no action was taken after repeatedly complaining about “abhorrent, intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination” at the network. Also included in The Times report were a race, gender and pregnancy discrimination lawsuit filed on behalf of a former Fox5 reporter, and a gender discrimination lawsuit filed by a Fox News Radio reporter. Wigdor LLP Founding Partner Douglas H. Wigdor, who represented the plaintiffs along with Partners Jeanne M. Christensen and Michael J. Willemin, testified before UK regulators in November 2017 amid their review of 21st Century Fox’s multi-billion dollar bid to purchase British media conglomerate Sky.
