Ex-Fox News Columnist Roger Friedman Files $5.2 Million Suit Against Network

Jun 30, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Roger Friedman, fired from his Fox News entertainment column in April after reviewing a leaked copy of the 20th Century Fox movie “Wolverine,” filed a $5.2 million wrongful termination suit, the Huffington Post says.

The suit against Fox News, News Corp., 20th Century Fox and Rupert Murdoch was filed Monday in New York State Supreme Court and also seeks damages for tortious interference and libel defamation. Friedman, who later jumped to the Hollywood Reporter, had earlier alleged that News Corp. was looking for an excuse to fire him because of pressure from Scientologists, of whom he had been critical.
