Fan Hit by Cable at Coca-Cola 600 Sues Fox Sports, Charlotte Motor Speedway
Feb 2 15
A fan who says he was injured when an overhead camera cable snapped and whipsawed in the grandstand during the 2013 Coca-Cola 600 has filed suit against Fox Sports and Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord. Patrick Carpenter filed suit last week in civil court in Randolph County saying he was injured and scarred on his right arm and shoulder after the synthetic cable fell and was then snagged by passing race cars on the track. Patrick said he suffered permanent impairment of his right arm. Fox and the speedway declined to comment on the suit. Carpenter, represented by Michael Lewis and D. Stuart Punger of Winston-Salem, said in the suit that Fox and the speedway were negligent in not better inspecting and protecting spectators from the overhead cable and camera rig, called a CamCat. Carpenter was seated in the grandstand near Turn 4 when the accident occurred on Lap 121 of the May 26, 2013, race. About 10 people were treated after the accident. Carpenter is the first to file a suit. Fox suspended use of the camera rig at Sprint races and conducted an investigation into what occurred, although the remains of the cable were in poor condition after becoming ensnared by 19 cars.

Jerry Davis, a Former Employee Files Lawsuit against FOX Cable Network Services, FOX Sports Net, FOX Sports and FOX Networks Group over Claims of Racial Discrimination
Apr 9 13
A former employee sued News Corp.'s FOX Sports over claims of racial discrimination. Jerry Davis, a former director in the FOX Sports music department, on April 5 filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against FOX Cable Network Services, FOX Sports Net, FOX Sports and FOX Networks Group. The suit accused FOX Sports of denying Davis a promotion despite working for the company from August 1997 because, as a black man, he did not fit neatly into the company's corporate culture. The lawsuit reads, in the division that runs broadcast/'over the air' sports programming for FOX, there are currently approximately 34 individuals employed at or above the vice president level. None are black. In his lawsuit, Davis also accused FOX Sports of eliminating his position in February while he was on disability leave without providing any interactive process or attempts at accommodation.
