Tomi Lahren to Sue Glenn Beck, but Does She Have Legal Ground to Stand On?

Toni Lahren is going after The Blaze’s Glenn Beck, stating that he unlawfully fired her and broke their contract. Only it’s not quite that cut and dry.

Lahren has been a Conservative icon and loved by many people who stood behind her fierce commentary. That is, until her comments recently when she starred on The View.

Conservatives watched, waiting for her to DESTROY those liberal witches…..but then something else happened that caused Lahren to lose a massive portion of her Conservative following.

Everything changed the moment she stated, “I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.”

See that’s where Lahren is wrong. It isn’t the government deciding what women can do with their own bodies, but rather standing up to put a stop to the absolute genocide of entire generations…three million babies are ripped from their mother’s womb a year. It’s murder.

Now Lahren is suing Beck for breaking their contract….However, Beck says she is still being paid and is still an employee.

Dallas News reports:


The Blaze, which is based in Irving, said Friday that Lahren had not been terminated.

“It is puzzling that an employee who remains under contract (and is still being paid) has sued us for being fired, especially when we continue to comply fully with the terms of our agreement with her,” a Blaze spokesman said.

The spokesman said Beck would not comment directly on the suit.

Lahren’s suit alleges that the hubbub surrounding her comments was “a public smear campaign” orchestrated to “inflate Beck’s profile, from what has become a mediocre following, all at [Lahren’s] expense.”
The suit also says that The Blaze won’t allow Lahren access to her Facebook page, where she has 4.2 million followers, which has “irreparably harmed” Lahren.

A Blaze producer traveled with Lahren to her appearance on The View, the suit says, in which Lahren said: “I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.”
After the show, the producer “applauded” Lahren’s appearance, the suit says, and she received several “congratulatory” emails from coworkers.

I agree that she should have the right to speak her opinion, even if I do not agree with it. The first amendment gives us that freedom of speech. However, if is she is still an employee, who is still being paid, then she has not been terminated, nor wrongfully terminated. So how will her suit hold up in court?
