Oct. 16 - Fox News To Fire Andrea Mackris, Who Filed Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Bill O'Reilly
Fox News Channel television host Bill O'Reilly and a former producer of his talk show have agreed to settle their legal dispute over her allegations of sexual harassment, O'Reilly's lawyer announced Thursday.
O'Reilly, who's married, is host of the top-rated prime-time cable news program - and he's seen his ratings go up by 30 percent since the case was filed.
O'Reilly's lawyer, Ronald Green, issued a statement Thursday saying both sides "regret that this matter has caused tremendous pain, and they have agreed to settle. All cases and claims have been withdrawn, and all parties have agreed that there was no wrongdoing whatsoever by Mr. O'Reilly, Ms. Mackris, or Ms. Mackris' counsel, Benedict P. Morelli & Associates."
Green's statement also said he and O'Reilly "withdraw any assertion that any extortion by Ms. Mackris, Mr. Morelli" or his law firm occurred.
There is no mention in the article about what will happen about Andrea Mackris losing her position at Fox News or whether she will pursue a case against them regarding the firing.
