Fox News Employee Sues Over Bed Bugs

FNCLogo_5.28.jpgA 12-year veteran of Fox News Channel has been diagnosed with post traumatic stress syndrome and is now filing suit over the bed bug infestation in the FNC newsroom. According to her lawyers, Jane Clark, “can no longer go to work after suffering emotional distress due to a continuous and ongoing bedbug problem at work.”

TVNewser was first to report the problem last fall, which continued through the winter. The NYTimes reported the bed bugs were “totally eradicated” in March.

But Clark’s lawyer, Alan Schnurman, says his client “was attacked” by the swarming insects just last month, on April 30. Apparently, after Clark’s department was moved to a different floor, the bedbugs moved with her. A News Corp. insider tell us there’s no proof of that, however. Clark claims she was was also bitten last October and again in November.

Clark has filed suit against the building’s manager Beacon Capital and the maintenance company, Triangle Services. She has also filed a Workers Compensation claim against News Corp.
