The head of legal at Fox News has taken a voluntary leave of absence, the channel announced. Dianne Brandi, who is executive vice president of legal and business affairs, has worked with the news channel for over 20 years. Ms Brandi has been named in several of the harassment and racial discrimination lawsuits that have been filed against the company in the last year. The lawsuits alleged that she either failed to investigate harassment complaints or did not take action in response to complaints about a difficult work environment.
