Casey Affleck's Sexual Harassment Suits Settled
Actor Casey Affleck has settled two sexual harassment cases filed by female crew members on his Joaquin Phoenix documentary. Earlier this year Amanda White, a producer on Affleck's "I'm Still Here", filed a $2 million sexual harassment lawsuit against the star, alleging she endured "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace" while making the movie.
Cinematographer Magdalena Gorka filed a separate sexual harassment lawsuit against Affleck, seeking $2.25 million n damages. The deadline in the case was postponed in August as the parties met for mediation, which has resulted in a settlement.
A statement from Affleck's legal team reads, "The disputes between Flemmy Productions, LLC and Casey Affleck with Amanda White and Magdalena Gorka in connection with the film 'I'm Still Here' have been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties and the lawsuits are being dismissed." The Associated Press reports the two women will now receive a credit on the film, but no details of any financial agreements have been released.
