Suing for defamation and breach of contract, claiming that public statements by O'Reilly and Fox News violated their settlement agreement, and also portrayed her as a politically-motivated extortionist.

Newsworthy because of the attention non-disclosure agreements are getting in the wake of all these harassment allegations becoming public. Usually those are considered unfair to the victim (because they silence victims and foster a culture that allows for continued harassment), but in this case, it seems they could come back to bite the perpetrator instead.

In part, she's pointing to a statement of O'Reilly's that claimed none of the victims he settled with ever called the company hotline to report the abuse. Which is only true because no such hotline even existed (and this woman DID complain to HR).

"A January 2017 affidavit that Wiehl signed in exchange for her $32 million settlement, stating that she had resolved any issues with him and would not pursue any claims against him" - Bill O’Reilly promised ‘shocking’ proof of his innocence.

So she will be giving back the $32 million right?

That's not even the same O'Reilly harassment victim.

Also, when you sign a settlement saying you won't pursue any claims against the person, that generally doesn't apply to anything they might do in the FUTURE. Such as defaming your character by publicly calling you a politically-motivated opportunistic liar.

Oh, I didn't realize there were more. The $32 million dollar one is the one they most talk about.

I don't know who you mean when you say 'they,' but there are at least six victims that have been widely reported on, spanning basically his entire time at Fox News.

She's suing him for breach of contract. That won't make the contract null and void. That's dumb even for you Noldor.

The agreement included a confidentiality clause, which barred both sides from talking about the dispute, as well as a nondisparagement clause.

Bottom line, how much more $'s can she expect and is there a risk she could lose the $32 mil?

Dunno. No, I don't think so.

Again, this is NOT the woman who settled for $32M. It's a different one of the six women who've settled harassment claims with him over the years.

She cannot lose whatever money she settled for, as far as I know. He's the one who allegedly breached their arrangement, by making disparaging statements about her.

She could potentially lose money by breaking her non disclosure terms or nondisparagement clause herself.

It would be difficult as all she has to do is refer to the issues O'Rielly himself has brought up after the settlement.
