Unhappy at Fox News

MANHATTAN — An associate producer at Fox News claims in court that he is among the ranks of young male Fox employees to suffer sexual harassment at the hands of Judge Andrew Napolitano. Piling on, the plaintiff says Fox host Larry Kudlow is a boor to work for, and that the show's new executive producer is on a mission to replace every male staff member with a woman.

Read the complaint.

Fox reacted to the lawsuit by noting that it and Judge Napolitano "have ... parted ways" in the aftermath of an investigation it conducted immediately after learning the allegations by plaintiff John Fawcett. As for Fawcett's additional allegations, Fox called them "completely baseless and nothing more than a desperate attempt at a payday.”
