O'Reilly Accuser Sues Because Bill Keeps Talking About Her

Rachel Witlieb Bernstein's attorneys filed a lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY against O'Reilly and his former employer, Fox News, for breach of contract and defamation.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Bernstein said O'Reilly and Fox News broke their nondisclosure agreement in remarks to the New York Times. According to Bernstein's lawsuit, there was no hotline at the time, and she in fact told others at the network about the mistreatment. She was forced out of her job at Fox News and paid a settlement because of his mistreatment.

Rachel Witlieb Bernstein claims in her U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY suit Bernstein v. O'Reilly, 17-cv-09483, that she was not the source of information for the April 1 story that appeared in the Times.

Mr. O'Reilly has repeatedly said that the harassment allegations that led to his ouster from Fox News in April have no merit, that he never mistreated anyone and that he resolved the matters privately to protect his children.

"O'Reilly portrayed himself as a "target" and claimed the complaints against him were extortionate", the suit read. "In fact, he is a serial abuser and Ms. Bernstein's complaints about him were far from extortionate".

The April article detailed numerous settlements by O'Reilly. Unlike the other settlements made by O'Reilly and Fox News, Bernstein's complaint did not involve sexual harassment.

Bernstein also took issue with a Fox News statement claiming that no employees had ever previously raised complaints to management about O'Reilly's behavior.

A lawyer for Ms. Bernstein, Neil Mullin, asked that O'Reilly and Fox release all victims from their non-disclosure agreements in order to "let the truth out". She is now a producer for Conan, and is being represented by Smith Mullin, the same law firm that hired by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson in her own legal battle against the network. O'Reilly has denied the claims. She did go to HR and other company executives to complain about him several times.

O'Reilly would make other comments including to The Hollywood Reporter, which is cited in today's lawsuit.
