O'Reilly Suit: Mackris' Re-Employment Detailed


O'Reilly's and Fox's attorney Ronald Green said that Mackris and O'Reilly have always had a professional relationship and that she even asked O'Reilly personally for her job back. According to Fox News' complaint, she makes $92,300 in her current job.

Celebrity Justice:

Sources at CNN say she missed working for O'Reilly and that he hired her back over the objections of FOX's top boss, Roger Ailes.

Celebrity Justice is on the case, can we expect Abrams, Toobin and Van Susteren all over it, too?

Update: NYDN has more:

O'Reilly called again in April after Mackris' boss at CNN was terminated - for sexual harassment - and suggested they have dinner.

Mackris agreed - "if the talk was professional," the court papers state.

During that April 13 dinner, Mackris says she agreed to return to "The O'Reilly Factor" but only if O'Reilly behaved himself, stating that he had harassed other female staffers - and warning that they "might tell someone."
