CBS Staffers Hit Charlie Rose With Sex-Harassment Suit

Charlie Rose Sued by 3 CBS Staffers for Sexual Harassment Charlie Rose suggested female underlings have sex with each other, lawsuit claims

There's a new lawsuit in the Charlie Rose sexual harassment case.

The current plaintiffs, Katherine Harris and Sydney McNeal, who used to work for Charlie Rose, and Yuqing Wei, who is still employed by CBS, sued the former anchor and the network itself on Friday, May 4.

There are also other women who say they were sexually harassed by Mr.

CBS said in a statement, "We will vigorously defend against the allegations pertaining to CBS News and Mr. Kadro".

According to the suit, Rose fired both Harris and McNeal after the first Washington Post article was published.

The three women claim Rose had a nasty side, berating them for booking the incorrect flights and calling them idiots.

"The claims in the lawsuit filed today against Mr". The lawsuit also alleges that Wei warned Kadro about Rose's behavior.

In this August 10, 2015 file photo, Political Director for CBS News, John Dickerson, participates in the CBS News panel at the CBS Summer TCA Tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. CBS News has selected Dickerson as Charlie Rose's replacement on the "CBS This Morning" program, pairing him with current anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell. With the stories that have come out about the likes of Rose, Matt Lauer and Mark Halperin, the networks are making strides but women need to know they can report wrongdoings without repercussions, she said.

The allegations include details of comments Rose made about their intelligence and their ethnicity.

Rose repeatedly required Harris to have lunch and dinner with him, where he would place his hands on her thigh and would point at other women and call them prostitutes, according to the claim.

Rose was suspended and later fired by CBS after the Post story broke.

Rose was sued in 1986 by several women alleging sexual misconduct, which the network settled discreetly.

"CBS never got back to Ms. Wei about her complaint", the suit said. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless.

Harris claims she was wined and dined by Rose while working as a broadcast associate for one of the CBS morning shows, discussing potential job opportunities for Harris at "60 Minutes" or on Rose's eponymous show. She is now on medical leave, according to the suit.

Kadro did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Post has since reported that a total 35 women have come forward with allegations against Rose, whom one former intern reportedly said "falls toward the worst end of the spectrum" of sexual harassment.

The network sacked Rose, once one of America's most well-respected television news hosts, on November 21, less than 24 hours after eight women leveled sexual harassment accusations against him in The Washington Post.

In the following three decades, three CBS managers had been made aware of the complaints, according to the Post investigation.
