That's not a denial of the accusations, Glaser argues, especially since Ali asked two very pointed questions that went unanswered: "Has Eric, at any point, sent lewd or inappropriate text messages or emails to Fox News or Fox Business colleagues that were unsolicited?" and "Has Eric ever sent the image of a man's genitalia (whether it was Eric's genitalia or not) to any Fox News or Fox Business colleagues?" Bolling then hit Ali (personally, without naming Huffington Post) with a $50 million defamation lawsuit.
Bolling sued Ali for $50 million after the Huffington Post reporter wrote a story that claimed Bolling sent unsolicited photos of his genitalia to unsuspecting female coworkers.
Bolling was suspended over the weekend pending an internal investigation that a Fox spokesperson said is underway.
Patty Glaser, the writer's attorney, responded to the lawsuit in a letter Friday urging Mr. Bolling to either dismiss the litigation immediately or risk being dragged over the coals under oath. Ali also wrote that he is not going to stop reporting on Bolling "or anyone else". Bolling's lawyer said that his client "recalls no such inappropriate communications". "It will not work". "Ali is a paid freelancer under contract with HuffPost".
Trent Murphy out for season with torn ACL/MCL
Trent Murphy was supposed to miss the first four games of the season, now it looks like he'll miss all of the 2017 campaign. The Redskins have stalwart Ryan Kerrigan as a starter but are presently without a healthy Preston Smith or Junior Galette .
"The Summons with Notice you filed.is purposefully sparse on allegations, and does not identify which purportedly "false and misleading" statements could possibly support a $50 million damages award", Yashar Ali's attorney, Patricia Glaser wrote in a letter addressed to Bolling's attorney. Ali tweeted the letter on Friday afternoon.
Bolling is being represented by Kasowitz Benson Torres, the same firm that defended former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly following sexual harassment allegations. "No evidence has been produced about these claims, and that is why we filed suit so that the evidence and truth will come out".
She said that if Bolling declines to dismiss the lawsuit against Ali, she has been "authorized to pursue all claims in law and in equity against you and your client, including malicious prosecution".
