Eric Bolling, the Fox News host accused of sending unsolicited pictures of his genitalia to female colleagues, has sued the journalist who made the accusation, and the publication that ran the story, Washington Post is reporting.
In a summons filed Wednesday in NY state court, Bolling accused Ali of trying to damage his reputation through "highly reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements about the plaintiff's conduct and character".
"The nature of this action is for damages and injunctive relief based on defamation arising from the defendant's efforts to injure the plaintiff's reputation through the intentional and/or highly reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements about the plaintiff's conduct and character", the court notice said.
Gold notes that "Bolling is represented by Michael Bowe from the same law firm as Marc Kasowitz, who was President Donald Trump's personal attorney until last month". Judging by the latest move from suspendedFox News hostEric Bolling, we're going to find out. Ali noted in a tweet that he's named in the suite, HuffPost isn't.
Members of HuffPost's editorial team weighed in to defend Ali, describing him as a "careful and meticulous reporter".
Fox News has suspended Bolling and has hired law firm Paul Weiss to investigate the complaints. Bolling has also been accused by one former female Fox guest of sexual harassment. Whether or not Bolling will be able to prove that will be seen in court, assuming the two sides don't settle before the matter goes before a jury. "We stand by his reporting", a spokesperson for the website told BuzzFeed News. "Ali is a paid freelancer under contract with HuffPost". That's in addition from saying sexually-harassing things to them, the sources told Ali.
Bolling was a former commodities trader who worked as an on-air personality for CNBC before joining Fox Business when it launched in 2007.
This is not the first time Fox News has been caught up in allegations of sexual misconduct by its male employees. "THANK YOU FOR CONTINUED SUPPORT", Bollingwrote on Twitter.
