O'Reilly Accuser Sues Because Bill Keeps Talking About Her

OCT. 1 2015 FILE

Fox News and Bill O'Reilly have been hit with a lawsuit over press statements made in the wake of a New York Times story revealing the former television star had paid $13 million to five women to settle sexual harassment claims.

O'Reilly was constrained out of Fox News in April following a progression of disclosures about affirmed lewd behavior and manhandle.

Now, Rachel Bernstein is taking objection to these comments with a complaint that cites the non-disparagement clause of the settlement agreement she had with O'Reilly in 2002.

"O'Reilly has repeatedly said that the harassment allegations that led to his ouster from Fox News in April have no merit, that he never mistreated anyone and that he resolved the matters privately to protect his children".

Once a junior producer at Fox News and now working at Conan O'Brien's production company, Bernstein is suing for breach of contract and defamation. He abused Ms. Bernstein.

Behar read the false report on air, prompting her audience to break into uproarious applause, which co-host Meghan McCain compared to Oprah's now famous vehicle giveaway.

O'Reilly and spokesman Mark Fabiani did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.

"Defendant O'Reilly portrayed himself as a "target" and claimed that complaints against him arc extortionate", the more than $75,000 in damages seeking suit says of O'Reilly's widely published pushback media statements after the NYT article and the news of another $32 million settlement was made public in Octboer.

Bernstein's attorneys said in a statement Monday that she "was not the source for this revelation". Bernstein refuted the existence of the hotline, her lawyer characterized Fox's claim as a "cynical falsehood about a nonexistent hotline" that was invented "to bolster O'Reilly's claim that the women who received settlements must have fabricated their claims or they would have complained".

She went to HR and other organization administrators to gripe about him a few times. She also says she made repeated complaints in person to the network's human resources department and to other senior Fox News executives.

Bernstein's suit claims emotional distress as well as reputational and financial harm. Mullin's law firm, Smith Mullin, also represented former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson, who alleged she was harassed by the late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes. In it, Bernstein was personally identified as a "young producer" who, in 2002, was allegedly verbally assaulted by O'Reilly in the Fox newsroom.
