The calls started shortly after the lawyers, Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne M. Christensen, appeared with the plaintiffs in a televised news conference announcing a class-action tort, alleging that Fox News executives tolerated “abhorrent, intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination” in the workplace.
The lawsuit contends that Fox News employees repeatedly complained about racial discrimination to executives but that no action was taken. A separate lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan made similar claims. Fox News has denied the allegations.
The broadcast of the news conference infuriated Mr. Amico, the police said.
