Yashar Ali tweeted that he is being personally sued by Bolling for $50 million in damages for the story which led to the Fox reporter's suspension on Saturday.
The summons accuses Ali of "reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements about the plaintiff's conduct and character".
Ali wrote Wednesday on Twitter that he has received a summons from Bolling and says he stands by his reporting and will protect his sources.
The summons, which was filed Wednesday in NY state court, says Bolling is seeking both damages and injunctive relief arising from Ali's efforts to injure his reputation through "intentional and/or highly reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements" about his conduct and character.
Bolling is represented by Michael Bowe - a lawyer from the same firm as Marc Kasowitz, President Trump's personal attorney until July.
Fox News said over the weekend that Bolling had been suspended "pending the results of an investigation".

Ali's reporting relied exclusively on anonymous sources.
The alleged lawsuit came within a day of Bolling telling his followers on Twitter, "I look forward to clearing my name asap".
Last week, Ali wrote Bolling sent unsolicited lewd text messages to three women at Fox News and Fox Business in a story citing 14 anonymous sources.
