Fox Corp. Senior Legal Counsel to Resign Following $787M Settlement in Dominion Dispute

Fox Corp. announced on Friday that its chief legal officer, Viet Dinh, will be leaving the company. Dinh, who oversaw a $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems over defamation allegations, will step down effective Dec. 31. However, he will remain a “special advisor” to Fox Corp., according to a statement released by the New York-based company. The settlement with Dominion Voting Systems was reached by Fox News, a unit of Fox Corp., after the network aired false claims about the 2020 U.S. presidential election. This settlement came after weeks of pretrial disclosures that revealed the network’s knowledge of the claims’ inaccuracy. The reason for Dinh’s departure was not provided by the company. When asked for comment, a spokesman for Fox stated that there would be no additional comments beyond the statement. The lawsuit records also revealed that Fox had aired the false claims in an attempt to regain viewers who had switched networks after Fox correctly called Arizona for Joe Biden in the election. One Fox Corp. vice president called these claims “MIND BLOWINGLY NUTS.” During his deposition, Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch testified that he believed the 2020 election was fair and not stolen from former President Donald Trump.
