Part of Judd suit against We­in­stein dis­missed

Ledger-Enquirer - - Stay connected -

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.
