In August 2016 Andrea filled a lawsuit against Fox News claiming that she approached Fox News executives about Roger Ailes sexually harassing her in 2015 and that led to her demotion from ‘The Five’ to ‘Outnumbered’ and was later pulled from the air. In the lawsuit, she also claimed that Bill O’Reilly, Dean Cain, and Scott Brown made inappropriate comments to her and that Brown and Cain touched her without her consent.
In her suit, she said, “Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.”
Fox News on their part said that Andrea had breached her employment contract by writing a book without receiving network approval. The case was dismissed
On 29th January 2018, Andrea filed an amended lawsuit where she claimed that Fox News spied on her, hacked her personal electronic devices, and used proxy social media accounts to harass her online. She claimed that Ailes surreptitiously had a closed-circuit TV system record female Fox employees as they changed on the premises.
In May 2018 the judge dismissed the case due to lack of evidence.
“For the reasons already stated, vague, speculative, and conclusory allegations concerning malware allegedly found on Plaintiff’s personal computer and Fox News’s purported ability to access or monitor communications on Plaintiff’s Blackberry are insufficient to state such a claim. With respect to her Gmail account, Plaintiff believes that ‘someone’ accessed her account without authorization, but she doesn’t allege which of the Defendants, if any, actually did so.” The judge said.
