Fox News Sued Over Broadcasting Suicide Of Phoenix Man

Fox-NewsA woman has sued Fox News Network for airing live footage last fall of a suspect in a police chase committing suicide in the Arizona desert and not using a time delay that would have prevented the death from being broadcast on national television.

The lawsuit alleges the children of suspect JoDon Romero have suffered emotional distress from having seen the video of their father fatally shooting himself on September 28th, 2012 at the end of an 80-mile car chase. 

The lawsuit was filed recently in metro Phoenix by the mother of Romero's three sons.  It was also filed against Fox Entertainment Group Incorporated and Fox's parent company, News Corp.  The network says in a statement that it could not comment because of the pending litigation.
