Fox News and Tucker Carlson in Legal Battle Over New Show on Twitter

Fox News and Tucker Carlson are back in the headlines as the network steps up its legal battle with its former star. According to recent reports, the network has sent a “cease and desist” letter to Carlson claiming that his new show on Twitter violates his Fox employment contract, which is set to expire in early 2025.

This move comes after Carlson was pushed out of Fox News following the network’s $787.5 million defamation settlement with Dominion Voting Systems. Dominion sued Fox News for $1.6 billion over its broadcast of false claims that the company used its equipment to favor Joe Biden at the expense of Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

While Carlson is still being paid by the conservative network, his departure from the network was announced without citing a reason for his exit. However, Carlson has reportedly claimed that his departure was part of the settlement with Dominion.

Despite the legal battle, Carlson’s lawyers have reportedly told Fox News that the noncompete clause in his contract is no longer valid. They have accused the network’s leadership of fraud and of violating the contract.

Harmeet K. Dhillon, a lawyer for Carlson, has called the decision to remove Carlson from the network “the most catastrophic programming decision in the history of the cable news industry,” adding that her client won’t be silenced. “Fox News continues to ignore the interests of its viewers, not to mention its shareholder obligations,” Dhillon said in a statement to Axios.

In response to the cease and desist letter, Fox News did not immediately return HuffPost’s request for comment.

Despite the legal battle, Carlson is still moving forward with his new show on Elon Musk’s Twitter. His executive producer, Justin Wells, recently announced that Carlson’s next Twitter episode, scheduled for Tuesday, will cover Trump’s federal indictment over his handling of classified documents.
