LOS ANGELES – SAG-AFTRA applauds the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision today, affirming Ashley Judd’s right to pursue her lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein for the sexual harassment and abuse he is alleged to have perpetrated against her. 

The California Legislature took action to make sure that individuals like Ashley Judd, who may not be traditional employees, would have remedies against abusers, and that those abusers couldn’t escape responsibility based on technicalities related to employee status. The Ninth Circuit has rightly determined that statute means what it says, and that victims of harassment, abuse, and assault will not be cut off from justice based on technical details of employee status. 

We are also gratified that our amicus brief made a meaningful contribution to the decision, being explicitly cited by the Court.
