O'Reilly, Fox Face Breach of Contract Claims Over Outing of Accuser

"Knowing Ms. Bernstein and O'Reilly's other victims are afraid to speak out because he and Fox forced them to sign non-disclosure agreements, O'Reilly and Fox have made false and disparaging claims", Mullin said in a statement. As the New York Times explains, these types of settlements typically include iron-clad confidentiality and nondisparagement clauses. In a suit filed Monday, she accused him of defamation and breach of contract over comments he has publicly made about the allegations.
Bernstein is being represented by Neil Mullin and Nancy Erika Smith, who represented former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson in her 2016 lawsuit against the network's late founder and former chairman, Roger Ailes.
The New York Times revealed in April that Bernstein left the system in the wake of documenting a protest about him "raging into the newsroom" and shouting at her.
Bernstein was one of the five women mentioned in the Timesstory in April, which prompted dozens of advertisers to flee O'Reilly's top-rated Fox show and the network to eventually fire him.
The lawsuit, which has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of NY, states, "Mr. O'Reilly is the liar". In another widely published statement he said, "the worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel".
Bernstein alleges in her suit that she complained repeatedly about O'Reilly's mistreatment of her to the company's human resources department and top Fox News executives, but nothing was done.
