Abby Grossberg claims she has recently discovered more evidence relevant to Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation lawsuit against her former employer, and she plans to submit it to the court.
“Abby Grossberg stands ready to do her part to ensure that justice is done; that those who are licensed and obligated to tell the truth, and guide others to the truth, do just that. As soon as possible and practicable, Ms. Grossberg will continue to set the record straight by telling all she knows to those who need to know,” said Gerry Filippatos, the attorney for Abby Grossberg, a former Fox News producer.
Grossberg, who worked as a senior producer for hosts Maria Bartiromo and Tucker Carlson, has alleged in a new sworn statement that Fox lawyers ignored repeated reminders about an additional cellphone in her possession and did not search it during court-ordered discovery.
Grossberg was fired in March after she filed a lawsuit claiming that Fox lawyers coerced her into giving misleading testimony in the Dominion case and that she was being made a scapegoat for the network’s 2020 election coverage. Fox says she was fired for divulging privileged information.
Grossberg’s attorney said the statement would be filed with the Delaware court as early as Tuesday, the day the trial is set to begin.
In last week’s pretrial court appearances, Dominion attorneys played other recordings Grossberg made as a producer, including one with Rudy Giuliani, that Dominion said they’d received from Fox just the previous week.
Dominion is suing Fox News for $1.6 billion over what it says are defamatory claims made about the company’s voting machines.
Fox lawyers added in a filing dated Monday that while they had not known of Grossberg’s Otter recordings, they had shared some of Grossberg’s Otter transcripts found on email. The Giuliani transcript was shared with Dominion 10 months ago, they said.
“FOX News has complied with its discovery obligations,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
