Don Lemon Just Got Bad News On His Upcoming Sexual Harassment Law Suit, Timing Couldn’t Be Worse

Don Lemon Just Got Bad News On His Upcoming Sexual Harassment Law Suit, Timing Couldn’t Be Worse

Things are really not going well for the folks over at CNN right now…


Losing both Chris Cuomo and Jeff Zucker has dealt them a major blow, and it’s looking like Don Lemon might follow in their footsteps.

The lawsuit against Lemon just took a “bad turn” for the fake news peddler, and it could spell terrible “career” news for the dumbest man in media, to boot.

Discovery is poised to take over CNN, and they’re looking to make major changes and abandon CNN’s “biased news” reputation. So, this probably isn’t the best time to be making front-page news with your sexual harassment lawsuit.

And speaking of that… much to Don’s dismay, his case will be held in front of a jury.

This is not what Don Lemon wanted.

He wanted a bench trial before a judge. He does not want to be seated before a “jury of his peers.”

Radar Online reported that just recently, a judge ordered the case is headed to a jury trial despite Lemon’s objections. In court docs, Lemon tried to argue for the case to be heard in front of a judge.

But he got “overruled.”

So, why would Lemon want to steer clear of a jury?

Well, experts say that a bench trial may be the better option in a high-profile case like Don’s because the jury pool may be tainted due to news coverage of the alleged crime.

Also, a judge may be less “emotionally swayed” by certain evidence than would a jury.

But Don’s fresh outta luck. He’s getting a jury, like it or not.


Lemon did score one “legal victory,” however. People Magazine reported that CNN anchor Don Lemon saw a legal victory recently, after a magistrate judge in his assault case recommended that the accuser be sanctioned for engaging in “egregious conduct,” including deleting social media posts and messages in which he alludes to paying a friend (and potential witness) if he won his court case.
In a ruling issued in November, the magistrate in a federal district court in New York said Lemon’s accuser, Dustin Hice, should be ordered to pay a portion of the CNN anchor’s legal fees and recommended that Lemon be granted “an adverse inference instruction” once the case goes to trial in January. Hice has filed an objection to the magistrate’s recommendation, and the trial judge has not yet ruled.

That instruction would allow Lemon’s legal team to tell the jury ultimately deciding the case that Hice had intentionally deleted or destroyed evidence (including text messages containing homophobic language and photos that show him near Lemon’s home) and that the jury may presume that the intentionally lost or destroyed evidence would have been unfavorable to Hice.

A trial date has yet to be set.

But you know Don Lemon has got to be sweating bullets right now. His buddy Jeff Zucker is gone and lots of “dirty details” about Lemon’s drunken behavior are about to be entered into the official record.


I have a feeling Don’s future at CNN isn’t looking so bright.
