Employment Attorney Says Gretchen Carlson Settlement Unique, Calculated

Dallas employment attorney Rogge Dunn says Fox News’ quick resolution of Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment lawsuit shows how eager the network is about distancing itself from former chairman Roger Ailes.

21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, has offered a public apology and announced a settlement with Carlson for a reported $20 million. Carlson filed her claims in early July, and Ailes was fired nearly two weeks later. Now her case is off the books altogether. Given how quickly this case was settled, Fox News obviously is eager to put the Roger Ailes era behind them. These kinds of cases can go on for years, but this one settled in two months, which is significant on several levels,” says Mr. Dunn of Dallas’ Clouse Dunn LLP. “Ms. Carlson has been the most visible among those who have accused Mr. Ailes of inappropriate conduct, so resolving her case was very important for Fox News in terms of public perception.
