A lawsuit filed by former Fox News pundit Scottie Nell Hughes against the network has been stripped down but will continue, the Nashville Post reports. Hughes’ sexual harassment complaint has been partially thrown out, but U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley III will allow her to pursue failure-to-hire and retaliation claims. Pauley also granted Hughes’ motion to halt Fox’s attempts to depose four men with whom the network said had affairs with Hughes. “Defendants’ purported strategy is superficially appealing, but advances a boorish, reductive narrative that Hughes was predisposed to engaging in self-serving sexual relationships,” Pauley wrote in his order.
