Lawyer’s comments raise prospect of federal investigation for Fox News’ parent company

Federal prosecutors may be investigating Fox News Channel’s parent company for not reporting settlements related to sexual harassment cases to the Securities and Exchange Commission, an attorney representing a former Fox News host said in open court on Wednesday.

The lawyer, Judd Burstein, said that he had received a federal grand jury subpoena from the office of Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter.
