Hunter Biden lawyers announce plans to take LEGAL ACTION against Fox News
By Ramon Tomey // May 01, 2024

Lawyers for presidential son Hunter Biden have announced plans to take legal action against Fox News and its online arm Fox News Digital, according to a letter sent to the network.

NBC News obtained a copy of the April 23 letter, which accuses the conservative network of "conspiracy and subsequent actions to defame [the younger] Biden and paint him in a false light." It also accuses Fox News and Fox News Digital of "the unlicensed commercial exploitation of his image, name and likeness" and "the unlawful publication of hacked intimate images of him."

The letter, signed by partner Tina Glandian of the Geragos & Geragos (G&G) law firm, is the second correspondence issued to the conservative network this month. According to a source familiar with the presidential son's legal efforts, Fox News asked for more time to respond to the first letter.

The network has not yet responded to the April 23 letter, which set a deadline of April 26 for a response, according to G&G managing partner Mark Geragos. Biden hired the criminal defense lawyer and his firm to represent him in the litigation efforts against Fox News, according to NBC News. The conservative network did not immediately respond to requests for comments.

"For the last five years, Fox News has relentlessly attacked Hunter Biden and made him a caricature to boost ratings and for its financial gain," Geragos said in a statement. "We plan on holding them accountable."

NBC News noted that the presidential son has been a focus of Fox News coverage for the last several years. Per a review of transcripts done by the leftist Media Matters for America, the conservative network has mentioned Hunter Biden at least 13,440 times since January.

Sources familiar with the legal strategy said Biden's legal team believes that this number makes the potential case as significant, if not more so, than voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems' earlier defamation case against Fox News.

Fox News facing similar lawsuits from Smartmatic and others

The new threat of legal action sent by Biden's team comes almost a year after Fox News agreed to pay almost $800 million to Dominion to settle defamation claims. The settlement stemmed from the channel's airing of vote fraud claims in the 2020 election, which put incumbent President Joe Biden – Hunter's father – in the White House. The network also agreed to a $12 million settlement with a former employee who alleged she was pressured to provide misleading information as part of the Dominion case.

But aside from Dominion, Fox News is also facing a $2.7 billion lawsuit brought by Smartmatic, another voting systems firm that was the focus of the network's coverage. Shareholders have also taken legal action against the network's directors for allowing it to air the allegations during its coverage of the 2020 elections.

In its latest financial disclosures, Fox News said it will contest the lawsuits. However, it acknowledged that there could be a "material" adverse impact on the company's business and financial position by doing so.

Meanwhile, sources familiar with the presidential son's legal efforts told NBC News that the plan to pursue litigation against Fox News has been in the works for over a year. They added that the move was inspired in part by the success of the Dominion lawsuit and the ongoing Smartmatic lawsuit.

This new litigation push comes as the younger Biden prepares for a summer of criminal trials. His trial on gun charges in Delaware starts June 3, while his tax case is expected to go on trial in August.
