After settling sexual harassment claims and subsequently being sued for racial discrimination, Fox had to have been hoping for a break.
It was not meant to be.
News: Fox News personality @dianafalzone sues network on bias claims, alleging she was yanked from air after writing on her endometriosis

Here’s some more detail on the subject, via Reuters:
Diana Falzone, 34, said in the lawsuit in New York state court that despite writing many popular articles for Fox News’ website and routinely being praised for on-air appearances, she was abruptly sidelined in January, three days after the article about her struggle with endometriosis was published.
Falzone said Fox, a unit of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc, discriminated against her on the basis of sex and disability in violation of New York City law.
The network did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Falzone is being represented by the same lawyers used by Gretchen Carlson in her $20 million settlement from Fox after she reported sexual harassment by Roger Ailes.
