Fox News may have retracted its erroneous reports on Muslim “no-go zones” in Paris, but now it may have to lawyer up.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo told CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday that the city plans to sue Fox News for its “prejudiced” coverage of the city.

“When we’re insulted, and when we’ve had an image, then I think we’ll have to sue,” Hidalgo told Amanpour in the interview. “I think we’ll have to go to court, in order to have these words removed.”

“The image of Paris has been prejudiced, and the honor of Paris has been prejudiced,” she added.

When Amanpour asked for a specific network among the American news outlets, the mayor answered with two words.

“Fox News,” she said.
