    The Washington Post has reported that more than two dozen women say Rose harassed them.

    Three women who worked with Charlie Rose filed a sexual harassment lawsuit Friday against CBS News and the television journalist.

    The lawsuit filed in New York state court seeks unspecified damages.

    It said the women, who were in their early 20s when they were hired, were subjected to "predatory behavior," including repeated physical and verbal sexual harassment as Rose inquired about their sex lives and boasted of his exploits with women.

    Rose was fired in November as "CBS This Morning" anchor.
