The lawsuit, filed in New York Supreme Court, alleges that Rose habitually made sexually suggestive comments and engaged in inappropriate sexual contact with the three employees. The plaintiffs are Katherine Brooks Harris, Sydney McNeal, and Yuqing (“Chelsea”) Wei, each of whom alleges that Rose harassed them in 2017. The lawsuit also accuses CBS executives of failing to warn the employees about Rose’s history of sexual misconduct.
Rose was fired in November from his job as co-host of “CBS This Morning” after the Washington Post reported that eight women alleged he had sexually harassed them. The Post followed up on Thursday with a new report citing another 27 complaints of harassment dating back to the 1980s. The Post also alleges that CBS executives were warned about his behavior and failed to respond.
