ICYMI, last Friday, HuffPost writer Yashar Ali broke a story that Fox anchor Eric Bolling allegedly sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text to at least two female colleagues. For the story, Ali spoke to 14 sources in and out of Fox News and Fox Business. The network promptly suspended Bolling and launched an immediate investigation. Now, Bolling made a gesture even more gratuitous than uninvited sexts—he initiated a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the HuffPost writer.

The lawsuit itself, claiming that Ali defamed Bolling by accusing him of sending the lewd texts, is destined for failure for several reasons—most obviously that all indicators point to Ali’s story being true. And I’m not talking about Bolling’s wannanbe-playboy image in the Fox News room. I’m talking about indicators coming from Bolling himself and his own legal team.

Even Bolling’s lawyers appear to know that this lawsuit is nothing more than a PR stunt on his part. The lawsuit filed today in Supreme Court, New York County was initiated via “summons with notice.” That means there’s no formal complaint just yet (New York State allows civil actions to be commenced this way, with the specific allegations filed supplementally later). In many cases, lawyers choose to commence via summons with notice to get a lawsuit filed quickly, before a statute of limitations runs out. But that wasn’t the case with Bolling’s suit; he had all the time in the world to wait and file a normal complaint. Wednesday’s filing, signed by Michael J. Bowe of Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP (yes, the very same Kasowitz that represents Bolling’s friend Donald Trump) likely chose this method of filing in order to be intentionally vague.

The only allegations listed in the filing read as follows:
