Three women who worked with Charlie Rose at CBS News sued the network and former talk show host in NY state court Friday, accusing him of repeatedly making sexual advances and then firing two of them for speaking publicly about his alleged misconduct. The plaintiffs - Katherine Brooks Harris, Sydney McNeal and Yuqing "Chelsea" Wei - were all junior employees in their 20s when the acts occurred, the lawsuit says.

In response, the Post wrote, CBS News said in a statement that it had worked to strengthen protections for employees in the wake of the Rose scandal but could not "corroborate or confirm numerous situations described" in the new report.

The Post published a follow-up report this week that revealed an additional 27 accusers who said Rose had acted inappropriately toward them, including groping their bodies and making lewd sexual remarks, among other acts.

After the bombshell story, Rose admitted to some of the allegations but has claimed there was no wrongdoing. The lawsuit also alleges that Wei warned Kadro about Rose's behavior. The complaint also accused the network of demoting Wei in retaliation for her complaint against Rose.

CBS News has selected Dickerson as Charlie Rose's replacement on the "CBS This Morning" program, pairing him with current anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

CBS fired Rose last fall.

Rose could not immediately be reached for comment.

Rose later allegedly told Harris he hired her because he liked "tall women", kissed her on the cheek, placed his hands on her thighs, and demanded she come to his apartment late at night. The executive assistant to the show's new producer, Ryan Kadro, said she told her boss about the attention Rose was paying to the young woman, and said he did not seem alarmed. The lawsuit also accuses CBS executives of failing to warn the employees about Rose's history of sexual misconduct.

Rose referred to Wei as a "China doll" and caressed her arms when she handed him papers, according to the lawsuit.

Wei says she then filed a complaint with CBS human resources that went unanswered and was later reassigned to an entry level position by the network, which had questioned the accuracy of her time sheets. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless.

CBS News said it could not confirm or corroborate numerous stories told by The Post.

Wei has since taken medical leave from the network.

Eleanor McManus, co-founder of Press Forward, a group of women who have been victims of sexual misconduct in newsrooms, said the Post report illustrated a systematic problem across news organizations that needed to be addressed.

"CBS was fully aware of".
