British actress Julia Ormond He sued this Wednesday The Walt Disney Companyto the talent company CAA, to the producer Miramax already Harvey Weinstein for a sexual assault allegedly carried out by the former producer in 1995.
In the complaint filed before the New York Supreme CourtOrmond alleges that Weinstein, currently in prison, abused her after a work dinner and claims that CAA and Disney – owners of Miramax – knew of the producer’s behavior and did nothing to protect her.
In the legal document obtained by the specialized media Variety, the actress of ‘Legends of Passion’ or ‘The First Knight’ describes that Weinstein seduced her to give her a massage, climbed on top of her, masturbated her and forced her to perform oral sex.
According to his story, Ormond informed his then agents Bryan Lourd y Kevin Huvane -today co-presidents of CAA- about what had happened with the producer of ‘Pulp Fiction’, among other great hits, and they warned him not to speak and protected him.
Neither Lourd nor Huvane are named as defendants, but they are mentioned repeatedly throughout the lawsuit as Ormond’s representatives at the time.
