The fireworks are apparently over in the battle between Judith Regan, former president of ReganBooks, and parent company News Corporation. Regan and News Corporation reached an undisclosed settlement of her $100 million lawsuit in January.
Regan had sued for after media giant Rupert Murdoch fired her in 2006, allegedly for ranting about a “Jewish cabal” in a conversation with a lawyer. Regan said she’d been News Corporation’s “whipping girl,” tarred by the company’s attitude toward “nuts and sluts.”
In a fairy tale ending, News Corporation has since said it believes Regan did not say anything anti-Semitic after all; in fact, it doesn’t believe she is anti-Semitic. Regan said she was “grateful to have had the opportunity to work with so many gifted people.”
