Three Women Sue Charlie Rose And CBS Over Alleged Sexual Harassment

Their lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court on Friday, alleges that the three women were subject to "blatant and repeated sexual harassment" by the former CBS anchor, and then suffered "subsequent unlawful retaliation".

Three women who worked with him are have filed a lawsuit against the journalist and CBS News.

Rose fired Harris and McNeal following last year's Post story, and CBS did not offer them new positions, the lawsuit said.

Harris says she once wore a mini-skirt with roses on it, and the ex-"CBS This Morning" anchor said they were HIS roses.

The lawsuit comes one day after the Washington Post published an investigative story that reported an additional 27 women, including 14 CBS News employees, had accused Rose of harassment.

"During the week of May 2, 2017, Mr. Kadro approached Ms. Wei from behind, while Ms. Wei was seated at her desk and as an act of sexual harassment, kicked and shoved Ms. Wei's chair with substantial force, startling, intimidating and scaring Ms. Wei", the lawsuit states. The lawsuit also alleges that Wei warned Kadro about Rose's behavior. Rose his job as a host [VIDEO] of "CBS This Morning" and an on-the-scene reporter for "60 Minutes". With the stories that have come out about the likes of Rose, Matt Lauer and Mark Halperin, the networks are making strides but women need to know they can report wrongdoings without repercussions, she said. Harris left CBS last April to work for Rose directly at PBS, where the third plaintiff, Sydney McNeal, also worked as one of his assistants.

Among the allegations: Rose repeatedly sexually touched the women, including "caressing and touching their arms, shoulders, waist and back, pulling them close to his body and kissing them on the cheek".

Rose could not immediately be reached for comment.

In one case, the lawsuit alleges, he referred to Wei as a "China Doll" and used an expletive while calling her an "idiot" for booking a flight that did not have flat folding seats.

In the suit, Ms. Wei, an assistant, said she expressed concerns previous year to the current executive producer of "CBS This Morning", Ryan Kadro, about the amount of attention that Mr.

CBS News said it could not confirm or corroborate numerous stories told by The Post. The newspaper also reported that CBS managers were warned of Rose's conduct at least three times over a period of 30 years. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless.

Wei has since taken medical leave from the network.

The women's attorney, Ken Goldberg, of the Manhattan firm Goldberg & Fliegel, said his clients have a strong claim under New York City Human Rights law, which he describes in the lawsuit as one of the "broadest and most protective laws against discrimination in the nation". Hours later, three new accusers at CBS News made further claims against Rose.
