Judge Andrew Napolitano is out at Fox News over the allegation he sexually harassed a male staffer.
“John Fawcett, who works on the Kudlow show hosted by Larry Kudlow on Fox Business Network, is suing the network claiming he was sexually harassed by Napolitano,” reports the Daily Mail.
Fawcett, who’s 27, claims Napolitano “stroked his arm and made suggestive comments while they were on an elevator together.”
After an internal investigation and the public airing of the allegations, Fox fired the former judge.
The lawsuit, which is against Fox, states, “Even though the two had never met previously, Judge Napolitano stood awkwardly close to the plaintiff, started stroking his arm, and asked who the plaintiff worked for.”
“You see these hands?” the lawsuit claims Napolitano suggestively said to Fawcett. “They look clean, but they get really dirty.”
“It was common knowledge that Judge Napolitano sexually harassed young men at Fox News, and it had even happened to one of the plaintiff’s co-workers,” the lawsuit reads. “The plaintiff did not initially report the incident to human resources, however, because he did not want to jeopardize his career at Fox, but he did tell Mr. Dobbs.”- READ MORE
