Part of Judd suit against Weinstein dismissed
A judge has dismissed one section of Ashley Judd’s lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, but the rest remains headed toward trial.
U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez ruled Wednesday that Judd’s sexual harassment claim isn’t within the scope of a California statute. Gutierrez had already rejected the claim in November but allowed Judd’s lawyers to amend it, then dismissed it again.
Gutierrez said Judd’s allegations of defamation and economic interference can continue.
