Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros says in a lawsuit she was sexually harassed by former network chief Roger Ailes and other top executives.
Tantaros filed the suit Monday in Manhattan state Supreme Court.
She says in the suit that her job "devolved into a nightmare of sexual harassment" in the summer of 2014.
Fox officials didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
Tantaros first went public with her allegations last winter. At that time, the network said she made up the claims because she breached her contract after writing a book without getting network clearance.
Ailes resigned in July after former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson charged in a lawsuit that she was fired because she refused his sexual advances. He's denied the charges.
