Laurie Luhn, a longtime assistant at Fox News Channel, came forward in 2016 with allegations that former CEO Roger Ailes sexually harassed her – for 20 years. 

Ailes died one year later. Luhn is now suing the network and CEO, Suzanne Scott. (Mediaite).

Luhn is being represented by Larry Klayman, a controversial attorney who founded Judicial Watch and has represented individuals like Joe Arpaio and Jerome Corsi.

In a recent interview with the LA Times, Scott said she had “no clue on what was going on in Roger Ailes’ office” and that she personally “have never had any issues with any sort of harassment.”

The lawsuit filed this week calls those remarks “provably false” and says they were made to “defame, discredit, [and] smear” Luhn, as well as accusing Fox News of engaging in a “continuing cover-up.”

In a statement provided to Mediaite, a Fox News spokesperson responded: “Larry Klayman’s latest lawsuit is utterly frivolous and entirely without merit or credibility.”
