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

Fox Corp. has announced that its chief legal officer, Viet Dinh, will be stepping down from his position following a $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems over defamation allegations. Dinh will officially leave the company on December 31, but will remain as a “special advisor” to Fox Corp.

The settlement was reached between Fox News, a subsidiary of Fox Corp., and Dominion Voting Systems in mid-April. The lawsuit revealed that the network had aired false claims about the 2020 U.S. presidential election, despite knowing that they were untrue. The settlement was seen as a way for Fox News to address the fallout from these claims.

No specific reason was given for Dinh’s departure from Fox Corp., and the company has declined to comment further. However, records released during the lawsuit indicated that Fox aired these false claims in an attempt to regain viewers who were turning away from the network after it called Arizona for Democrat Joe Biden on election night.

During a deposition, Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch testified that he believed the 2020 election was fair and not stolen from former President Donald Trump.

**Unique Perspective:**
The resignation of Fox Corp’s chief legal officer following the $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems highlights the consequences of spreading false information. This case serves as a reminder that media organizations have a responsibility to verify their claims before broadcasting them to the public. It also raises questions about the impact of misinformation on public perception and the importance of holding media outlets accountable for their actions.
