A lawyer representing filed a request on Wednesday, July 28 asking for the sexual harassment case against the actor to be moved away from the court system and into arbitration. 's brother is being sued for $2 million by Amanda White, a producer on his documentary "I'm Still Here", which follows actor 's attempts to become a rap star.

White filed suit last week alleging she endured "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace" while making the movie. The producer has a list of accusations, which include sexual harassment, breach of oral contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and claims she is still owed money for her work on "I'm Still Here". A lawyer for the movie immediately hit back at the allegations, saying, "The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her."

And now Affleck's attorney, Marty Singer, has filed legal papers asking for the case to be resolved by arbitrators and away from the Los Angeles courts. The request claims White signed a contract agreeing to settle all disputes quietly "in arbitration". According to TMZ.com, White's lawyers deny their client ever signed such an agreement.
