A sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Fox News host Britt McHenry against the company and one of her co-hosts was voluntarily dismissed by the parties involved this week. 

The suit, filed in late 2019, accused George “Tyrus” Murdoch of sexual harassment, according to USA Today, which cited documents filed in New York district court on Monday. 

“I am very proud to have to stood up for my rights and hope that I have empowered other women to do the same,” McHenry said in a statement to the outlet. “Although I fully stand by the truth of my allegations, I am pleased to put this matter behind me and move forward with my career.”

Fox News said it also was pleased to see the suit dismissed. 

“While FOX News is confident it would have prevailed in the lawsuit, we are pleased that we have been able to resolve this matter without further litigation,” the company said in a statement to The Hill on Tuesday. 

McHenry hosted the show “UN-PC” on the Fox Nation streaming service with Murdoch from December 2018 to February 2019. Murdoch is now a correspondent on Fox News Channel’s new late-night show “Gutfeld.” 

In her lawsuit, McHenry had accused Murdoch of displaying “volatile and unpredictable behavior” and sending her unwanted and explicit messages. 

“I love pony tails and braids you look amazing and it’s a real turn on not that you care but I love it,” The Hill previously reported Murdoch said in one of the messages, according to the lawsuit filed in the Southern District of New York. 

“The picture looks so good I would knock up the picture …. crazy sexy love your legs,” he said in another message filed in the suit. 

McHenry separately accused Fox of retaliating against her after she came forward with allegations of inappropriate conduct by Murdoch. 

“I am standing up for myself, for women and for what’s right. I have maintained the same allegations because the truth doesn’t change,” she said in a tweet after the lawsuit was filed in 2019. “I feel for any sexual harassment victim who has their story and evidence dismissed, doubted and not believed.”
