Two more lawsuits that were filed against Ailes, are still pending. He always maintained his innocence and was expected to fight against the claims in court.

His estate, however, is likely to take a different stance.

Since Ailes is unable to defend himself and tell his side of the story, the estate does not have a good way to refute the claims in court. That could lead them to settle the lawsuits quickly, so they can distribute whatever is left of Ailes’ estate to his heirs.
