The family of slain Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Fox News and two of its staffers for publishing a story tying Rich’s death to a conspiracy theory.

The lawsuit, which was obtained by The Hill, claims that Fox News reached out to the Rich family under false pretenses to support reporting that Rich leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

“The pain and anguish that comes from seeing your murdered son’s life and legacy treated as a mere political football is beyond comprehension,” Joel and Mary Rich said in a statement provided to The Hill.

The lawsuit additionally claims that the defendants' conduct “was extreme and outrageous” and part of a deliberate effort to make Rich appear as a “criminal and traitor to the United States."

In addition to the network, the lawsuit names reporter Malia Zimmerman and contributor Ed Butowsky as defendants.

Fox News declined to comment, citing pending litigation.

ABC News first reported the lawsuit.

Rich, 27, was shot and killed last year on the streets of Washington, D.C.
