Wigdor LLP Resolves Claims for Michelle Gotthelf against New York Post

Joint Statement Issued by Wigdor Client Michelle Gotthelf and the New York Post:

The New York Post and Michelle Gotthelf are pleased to announce today that they have amicably resolved the lawsuit filed by Ms. Gotthelf in federal court in January 2022, and that the lawsuit will be withdrawn against all parties.

“The New York Post is an iconic institution, and I am very proud of my contributions there over more than two decades,” said Ms. Gotthelf. “The Post is in good hands with Keith Poole at the helm. His experience in print and digital journalism bodes well for the future of The Post.”

“Michelle’s skills as an editor and reporter were crucial in helping The Post reach its present stature, and we wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors,” said Mr. Poole.

Launched in November 1801 by Alexander Hamilton, the New York Post is the oldest continuously published daily newspaper in the United States.

The agreement between The Post and Ms. Gotthelf followed a month of discussions, and the announcement comes in accordance with the expiration of the twenty-one-day statutory waiting period.
