Fox News fires Andrew ‘Judge’ Napolitano in the wake of new sexual misconduct lawsuit

It’s been a while since Fox News has parted ways with a major contributor or network personality, but that changed on Monday.

According to The Hill, the network cut ties with Andrew Napolitano, a former judge who made his mark at the cable news network for his legal expertise and fiery opinions on various subjects. Fox News announced on Monday that due to sexual harassment allegations, Judge Nap was formally let go. 

Fox Business production assistant John Fawcett, 27, filed a lawsuit against Fox News and included a damning number of allegations against Napolitano and the network, including alleging that he “sexually harassed numerous young male employees during his tenure at Fox News.”

Fawcett’s own disturbing alleged encounter with Napolitano happened in an elevator, with Fawcett claiming that the former judge began stroking his arm while standing “awkwardly” close. Napolitano reportedly suggested that Fawcett come to visit his New Jersey-based horse farm, where his hands “get really dirty,” the lawsuit read.

Included in the lawsuit were allegations made against Fox News, as Fawcett claims the network brushed off reports of Napolitano’s allegedly inappropriate behavior.

Fox News fired back in a statement following the news, confirming that the network parted ways with the former New Jersey judge, adding that it takes sexual misconduct charges very seriously.

“Upon first learning of John Fawcett’s allegations against Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News Media immediately investigated the claims and addressed the matter with both parties,” the Fox statement read.  “The network and Judge Napolitano have since parted ways.”

This isn’t Napolitano’s first experience with such allegations, either, as he was accused of sexual misconduct last year by at least two men for various alleged incidents.

As of this writing, Napolitano has not issued a statement on the developing situation.

Nap seems to have gone to the dark side. I used to enjoy his opinions, but not any more. I’ll not miss him because I haven’t watched or listened to him in a couple of years.

I agree Stephen. Neither have I, I thought he was gone a long time ago. Anytime he gave his advice or whatever, he was normally wrong. They will not miss him nor will anyone else.
