HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali is demanding Fox News host Eric Bolling dismiss his lawsuit over a report detailing allegations that Bolling sent lewd photos to female colleagues.
In a letter to Bolling’s attorney, Ali’s lawyer Patricia Glaser slammed the $50 million defamation suit as a “frivolous” public relations stunt that has “tarnished Mr. Ali’s reputation and incited Mr. Bolling’s supporters to post racist tirades against Mr. Ali on his Facebook page.”
The lawsuit, she wrote, is without merit and “does not identify which purportedly ‘false and misleading’ statements could possibly support a $50 million damages award.”
Copied on the letter is Dianne Brandi, Fox News’ executive vice president of legal and business affairs. Ali posted a copy of the letter on his Twitter account Friday.
