In it, she demands the lawsuit be dropped, calling it "utterly devoid of merit".

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?"

Following his suspension, Bolling retaliated by suing Ali for $50 million in damages.

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.

Ali expressed on social media that he is unafraid of the lawsuit and maintained that he will continue to report on Bolling.

Bolling attorney Michael J. Bowe replied on August 4 that his client "recalls no such inappropriate communications" and "does not believe" he sent them.

"We welcome the opportunity to depose Mr. Bolling and review his message history, as we presume that you have instructed him to preserve communications", the letter to Bollin's attorney read. "Ali is a paid freelancer under contract with HuffPost".

Fox News suspended Bolling the next day amid an investigation into the claims. Long story short, Bolling's lawyers at Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP, who also represent Donald Trump and AMC, among others, are facing a true big leaguer working on Ali's behalf. "We have no hesitation about standing by him financially in this case". Ali tweeted the letter on Friday afternoon.

Glaser also represents Jamie Horowitz, the former head of Fox Sports programming, against the network after he was dismissed due to sexual harassment charges.

"She is right about one thing", Bowe continued.

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".
