    I hope this is half as good as the Gawker lawsuit.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    I can't stand her, but it sounds like for sure she'll win unless they settle first.

    She is sure an obvious troll, but she is super hot and can get it.

    I hope she wins for this reason

    In March, Lahren acknowledged on ABC’s The View that she was pro-choice, even though she is a conservative pundit. “I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies,” she said at the time

    Need to read her employment contract, but broadly speaking I'm pretty sure most private employers can terminate for political views/speech.

    I would hope that she, and her lawyers, are smart enough to have read her contract and determine if she had cause before filing a lawsuit.

    From what I read, they did not break her contract, which is why she is suing. What they did do is cancel her show ( though she is under contract to do X episodes), but kept her contract so she cannot work anywhere else. They are still paying her, but they are not keeping their side for her show count.


    Though it may sound whiny to want out when she is getting paid for doing nothing, they are effectively trying to make her disappear and lose viewers. I am sure she wants to move elsewhere before her fan base forgets who she is.

    And again, I can't stand her, but she's in the right.

    People file turd suits all the time. I got sued for 5 million before even though there is a literal statute that states CA state employees are immune for tort liability for performance of their duties.

    Granted this is a different type of beast, but celebrities are the type I would expect to throw the kitchen sink before they have any idea what's going to stick.

    That's a strict contract dispute, and yes she does have a right to specific performance unless she violated a specific term in the contract that permits The Blaze cancel the agreement. Such a suit would be different from "wrongful termination"

    I think it is all connected. If her contract does not stipulate she cannot say something not in line with the Blaze ideology, then they cannot terminate her and thus not give her the show count as listed in the contract.

    Alex Jones is in a custody battle and he's going to prove he's fit to be a parent by saying his show is a performance.

    His defense is literally that he is a real life version of the Boondocks' portrayal of Ann Coulter.

    Andrea Tantaros filed a criminal lawsuit today alleging that Fox News surveilled and hacked her electronically.

    https://www.scribd.com/document/346188854/Tantaros-suit

    Haven't taken a deep look at the details of the suit, and no idea how far this will go (afaik her harassment suit got put into binding arbitration), but I can't imagine this is good news given that there's a federal criminal probe into the network for these types of allegations.
