Fox Settles Dominion Lawsuit, but Is Entangled in Other Legal Cases

Even after the settlement with Dominion Voting Systems on Tuesday. Fox is still involved in other lawsuits. The following are the current status of some other lawsuits:

Smartmatic: In February 2021, Smartmatic, another election technology company, filed a defamation suit against Fox, accusing it of falsely implicating them in a bogus narrative regarding vote rigging during the 2020 elections.

In a Tuesday statement, a Smartmatic spokesperson said that "Dominion’s litigation revealed some of the misconducts and damages caused by Fox's misinformation campaign." "Smartmatic will reveal the rest."

Smartmatic claimed in its complaint Fox had knowingly broadcast more than 100 false claims. Fox Business cancelled Lou Dobbs' show a day after the lawsuit was filed.

A New York appels court refused Fox's request for dismissal of the case in February. Last month, a New York Judge agreed that the case could continue. The trial date is not yet set.

Fox News spokesperson said in a press release: "We're confident that we will win, as freedom of the media is fundamental to our democracy. It must be protected. The damages claims in this lawsuit are outrageous, unsupported, and are not based on sound financial analysis."

Abby Grossberg. On March 20, Fox News producer Abby Grossberg who worked with hosts Maria Bartiromo, and Tucker Carlson filed two lawsuits in Delaware and New York against the company. She claimed that Fox's attorneys had forced her to give an inaccurate deposition in the Dominion Case and alleged a hostile and a discriminatory workplace. Ms. Grossberg lost her job after she filed the complaints.

Fox News spokesperson said: "We will continue vigorously to defend Fox against Ms. Grossberg’s unmeritorious claims in court, which are rife with false accusations against Fox and its employees."

Crikey News: Lachlan Murdoch is the C.E.O. Fox Corporation is the plaintiff in this libel case.

Mr. Murdoch accused Crikey News of defaming after the website published a column that linked a "Murdoch", as an "unindicted conspirator" to Capitol riots on Jan. 6, 2007.

Crikey has recently updated its defense by adding documents and testimony from Dominion's case. The trial is scheduled to take place in Sydney, Australia in October.
