BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A settlement has been reached in the sexual harassment case involving Fox News Channel personality Bill O'Reilly, "Celebrity Justice" reported Thursday.
Citing sources, the syndicated TV show said terms of the settlement are confidential, and neither O'Reilly nor the woman who accused him admitted any wrongdoing.
Andrea Mackris accused O'Reilly of harassing her repeatedly and speaking to her in explicitly sexual language while she was an associate producer on his highly-rated Fox show, "The O'Reilly Factor."
O'Reilly, who also hosts a daily talk show on Fox Radio, accused Mackris and her attorney, Benedict Morelli, of threatening to go public with her allegations if O'Reilly didn't pay them $60 million. Morelli's office issued a statement last week saying he and Mackris always intended to settle the matter out of court.
In court filings last week, attorneys for O'Reilly asked for disclosure of tape recordings, telephone records, credit card statements and communications between Mackris and liberal talk show host Al Franken. O'Reilly and Franken have engaged in a running feud for more than a year.
