The lawsuit between Tomi Lahren and The Blaze & Glenn Beck has finally come to an end.
Both sides reached a settlement on May 1 and Lahren was released from her contract. Lahren was originally suspended from The Blaze on March 20 for stating that she is pro-choice during an appearance on The View. She was permanently banned from the network on March 26. Lahren is now free to seek employment at another network.
On April 7, Lahren filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against The Blaze and Glenn Beck. She claimed she was fired for her comments on abortion during her March 17 appearance on “The View.” There was confusion on how Lahren could sue The Blaze for wrongful termination when she was still under contract with them.

Lahren has also appeared on “Watters’ World” multiple times, including the day after her appearance on “The View.”
Where Lahren goes next is unsure but she has shown she is not afraid to go on any network. She and Bill O’Reilly are the two biggest conservatives on the open market and will get big pay days when they decide to sign somewhere.
