ESPN has settled a lawsuit filed by former producer Ashley Judd over sexual harassment allegations.
The settlement comes just weeks after ESPN’s lawyers disclosed they had received a $25 million settlement from former employee Jillian J. Dolan.
Dolan, who resigned from the network in April, accused ESPN of covering up sexual harassment claims by former ESPN producer and ESPN contributor Ashley Judd.ESPN reached a $1.3 million settlement with Dolan in April.
Judd, who also worked as a producer at ESPN in the 1990s, alleges ESPN violated the terms of her employment agreement by not responding to her allegations of inappropriate behavior, which she says included sexual harassment, retaliation, and the termination of her job.
Jurgens suit was settled in September 2016, with a settlement expected in the coming weeks.ESPN’s settlement with Judd’s attorney, William Black, did not disclose a monetary amount or the number of claims in the suit.
The network said it would also settle with an alleged victim.
Jurors heard about the allegations from several women who worked for ESPN during the early 1990s.
Junkens lawsuit was filed in July 2017, just days after the network announced that it was ending its deal with Drones lawyer.
