Former publisher Judith Regan has sued News Corporation alleging that she was fired as head of the ReganBooks imprint following a campaign to smear her reputation. She further asserts in her $100-million lawsuit that she was prompted by top company executives to lie to federal investigators about her affair with former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik in order to protect the presidential aspirations of Rudolph Giuliani, who had appointed Kerik to his post. The entire lawsuit has been posted on TheSmokingGun website.
