Jerry Davis, a Former Employee Files Lawsuit against FOX Cable Network Services, FOX Sports Net, FOX Sports and FOX Networks Group over Claims of Racial Discrimination

A former employee sued News Corp.'s FOX Sports over claims of racial discrimination. Jerry Davis, a former director in the FOX Sports music department, on April 5 filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against FOX Cable Network Services, FOX Sports Net, FOX Sports and FOX Networks Group. The suit accused FOX Sports of denying Davis a promotion despite working for the company from August 1997 because, as a black man, he did not fit neatly into the company's corporate culture. The lawsuit reads, in the division that runs broadcast/'over the air' sports programming for FOX, there are currently approximately 34 individuals employed at or above the vice president level. None are black.
