21st Century Fox confirmed on Tuesday that it has settled 18 individual workplace claims with attorney Douglas Wigdor. The settlement reportedly totaled $10 million, and the cases range from sexual harassment to workplace discrimination based on gender and race. The New York Times reports that the settlement involves a class action lawsuit filed in part by Fox News anchor Kelly Wright. The terms reportedly state that Wright and the other employees who joined the suit agreed to drop their claims of racial discrimination and leave the cable network altogether. Wright’s contract was also bought out, according to the Times. Wright was the only black male anchor at the network.
