  • Fox's Eric Bolling sues for $50 million over 'lewd photo'

Yashar Ali has fired back at a lawsuit filed against him by suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling.

Because Bolling's summons doesn't specify which false statements he's suing over, Glaser, like many observers in the media, assumed it was sent in response to Ali's August 4 HuffPost story that alleged the host sent "an unsolicited photo of male genitalia" via text message to multiple colleagues.

Fox News suspended Bolling the next day amid an investigation into the claims.

Glaser called the summons "frivolous" because it "asserts material factual statements that are false" and was "filed to harass or maliciously injure" Ali. Ali also wrote that he is not going to stop reporting on Bolling "or anyone else". Bolling then hit Ali (personally, without naming Huffington Post) with a $50 million defamation lawsuit. "It will not work".

"Continuing litigation will only reveal that Mr. Bolling's lawsuit was filed for public relations purposes and to retaliate against Mr. Ali for uncovering the truth", Ms. Glaser wrote in a letter shared by his client's Twitter account Friday evening.

HuffPost editor-in-chief Lydia Polgreen previously described Mr. Ali as a "careful and meticulous reporter" and said the website has "no hesitation" with regards to funding his defense. "Ali is a paid freelancer under contract with HuffPost".

And the response letter from his attorneys reinforces what Ali said he believes the case is.

Bolling is being represented by Kasowitz Benson Torres, the same firm that defended former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly following sexual harassment allegations. "She is right about one thing".

Glaser, who has also represented media figures such as Rush Limbaugh and Keith Olbermann, wrote Friday that her team would welcome the "opportunity to depose Mr. Bolling and review his message history, as we presume that you have instructed him to preserve communications". "Should you refuse, we have been authorized to pursue all claims in law and in equity against you and your client, including malicious prosecution".
