Fox Corp Marks Another High-Level Exit With Legal Chief Viet Dinh Stepping Down

Fox Corp said Friday that its chief legal officer Viet Dinh was stepping down, a high-profile exit that follows the media company’s $787.5m settlement in April of a defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems over its 2020 US election coverage.

Dinh, who will exit the role at the end of 2023, joined Fox in 2018 and headed its legal and compliance divisions during the months-long legal battle sparked by the network’s coverage of false claims that Dominion rigged the election.

As part of a separation agreement, Dinh will get a lump sum cash payment of $23m, Fox said. He will become a special adviser to the company after leaving the role of legal head.

The move marks another major departure at the network since the settlement. Top-rated host Tucker Carlson agreed to part ways with Fox in April, just days after the legal resolution.

In June, the company also settled a lawsuit by former Fox News producer Abby Grossberg, who claimed gender discrimination and accused the network’s lawyers of pressuring her to make misleading statements in the Dominion Voting Systems case.
