The parent company of the Fox News Channel, 21st Century Fox supposedly knew a news analyst had planned to file a sexual harassment lawsuit again Bill when it renewed his contract in February 2017. Apparently, the company renewed the contract after Bill had reached a $32 million settlement with Lis.
But it soon came to the light that Fox News was not a party to the settlement and saw it as a personal matter between Lis and Bill. They also claimed that they were not informed of the amount of money that was involved in the settlement.
While things remained unclear, many attorneys were surprised about the amount that Bill gave to settle the claim.
