Fox News legal counsel, named in lawsuits, taking leave

October 07, 2017 01:23 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News says that the network's legal counsel, who is named in lawsuits relating to the late former CEO Roger Ailes' regime, is taking a "voluntary leave."


Fox offered no additional details Friday on the departure of Dianne Brandi, including whether she is being paid or if she will return. She was a powerful leader at Fox under Ailes, who was forced out last year because of harassment charges.

Brandi was named in lawsuits by former and current employees who alleged she did not act on complaints made about executive behavior, and even retaliated against people who made charges. Brandi has denied the allegations.
