Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren has filed a wrongful termination suit in Dallas County against Glenn Beck and The Blaze.

The host of “Tomi” was suspended and then ultimately cast out of Mr. Beck’s media company after a March 17 appearance on “The View.” The commentator’s lawsuit, which was filed Friday, says she was fired for taking a tactful pro-choice stance on abortion.

“I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies,” Ms. Lahren said during the ABC broadcast. “So stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”

Ms. Lahren’s lawsuit states that no one said “that her statements on The View were either improper or inappropriate; and, indeed, that [Lahren’s] point of view is just that — her point of view and freedom of expression,” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday.

The 24-year old pundit will seek attorneys’ fees and costs, “as well as all other relief” deemed necessary during the litigation process.

Ms. Lahren also asked a judge to grant her a temporary restraining order that would allow her begin interacting with fans.

“She’s ready to pursue her career and reconnect with her millions of followers,” said attorney Brian Lauten, the Morning News reported.

A spokesman for The Blaze did not immediately respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
