On Wednesday, the attorney representing Fox News employees who are suing the cable network for racial discrimination said that there is more to come. In a statement, Douglas Wigdor said, “In the coming days, we will be filing additional complaints and allegations against Fox News that will shed further light on the abhorrent, intolerable, and unlawful working conditions that our clients have been forced to endure.”

Wigdor’s statement also responded to an accusation by Marc Kasowitz, who represents Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. Kasowitz’s statement, described O’Reilly’s recent woes as “character assassination,” and a “smear campaign,” and said that his firm had evidence that it was “orchestrated by far-left organizations.” Wigdor said that he finds such accusations “offensive,” and noted that not only does he watch Fox News, but he contributed to President Donald Trump‘s campaign.
Wigdor said that the lawsuits his firm is bringing against Fox News are not political in nature. “To the contrary,” he said it so that employees “are treated fairly and lawfully, regardless of who they work for or what political beliefs their employer may support.”
