Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

While waiting for a response, please do not keep asking questions, such as "Are you there", etc. since that can erase whatever I am writing and also interrupts the thought process. I will be back with you as soon as I can do any research necessary, formulate a response, and type it in.

Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely for a number of reasons (although I assure you that you have my sympathies). The first is that she is voluntarily watching the channel as opposed to a cult where they have someone monitoring the person and keeping them involved.

Another reason is that, even though Fox is really not "news" (and I believe they have stated they are an entertainment channel), they are still entitled to a certain amount of freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

In addition, the courts have addressed these types of cases before both in class action suits as well as individual lawsuits. I don't remember seeing any of them go to appeal but I have not seen any won at trial by anyone suing Fox. That would mean no one would take the case on a % basis and it would likely cost you close to $100k or more to pursue such an action because they would defend the case as aggressively as possible and your chances of winning are probably 10% or less.

So, I don't see a way to effectively pursue them as much as I wish someone could.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
