New York (CNN Business) — Britt McHenry, a host on Fox News’ streaming service, Fox Nation, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit on Tuesday against the network and one of its on-air personalities, George “Tyrus” Murdoch.

The lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, argued that Fox News retaliated against McHenry after she accused Murdoch, her former Fox Nation co-host and a network contributor, of sexual harassment. It further contended that the probes conducted by outside law firms on behalf of the network were “sham investigations.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“The last thing I wanted to do was file this lawsuit,” McHenry said in a statement provided by attorney Lisa Bloom’s law firm, which represents her. “But I had to stand up for what’s right for myself and for women.”

Fox News defended the firing and Murdoch denied the allegations in separate statements, CNN reported.

Fox News spokesperson said McHenry’s lawsuit “recycles the same allegations filed with the New York State Division of Human Rights in October, to which we filed a response on Friday.”
“As we have previously stated, Ms. McHenry’s allegations have been fully investigated and we are confident our actions will be deemed entirely appropriate in litigation. We expect all of her claims to be dismissed.”
Tom Clare, Murdoch’s lawyer, said his client denies the allegations.
Clare said, “He looks forward to having a public forum in the court system to clear his name from the smear campaign that had been waged against him in the media. Tyrus will be pursuing defamation counterclaims.”
