A Fox News producer on Monday filed a pair of explosive lawsuits against the right-wing talk channel, alleging that the network’s lawyers coerced her into providing misleading testimony in Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation case against the company.
Fox had filed for a restraining order against Grossberg Monday but dropped its lawsuit Tuesday.
Spokespeople for Fox News did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Tuesday after the network moved to drop its suit against Grossberg.
But the attorneys representing the Fox News producer issued a statement celebrating the network’s retreat.
In a phone interview Monday night, Grossberg and Filippatos, disputed Fox News’ assertion the complaints only came after a critical performance review.
“It’s another example of Fox News not only shying away from the truth, but attempting to bury the truth,” Filippatos told CNN.
In her lawsuits, Grossberg also made a number of eye-popping allegations about the workplace environment at Fox News, accusing the network of rampant sexism. »
