Judge dismisses Ashley Judd's sexual harassment claim against Harvey Weinstein

Disgraced film producer, Harvey Weinstein just won a major victory as a court dismissed Ashley Judd's sexual harassment claims against him.

Ashley claimed Weinstein shut her out of "Lord of the Rings" after she turned down his sexual demands. She also claimed he blacklisted her from movie roles. She went on to sue him for sexual harassment in professional relationship.

But a federal judge has ruled Judd and Weinstein did not have a relationship that fell within the law. The judge specifically said a producer/actress relationship was not covered under the law.

The law was changed in 2018 to cover such relationships, but the judge said it could not be applied retroactively since Judd and Weinstein's case happened before the law came into place.

Judd can still litigate her defamation claim.

Michael Jackson's estate slams sexual abuse documentary about him which is about to premiere at Sundance

The late Michael Jackson's estate is slamming a new documentary making allegations of sexual abuse by the late singer.

The documentary titled "Leaving Neverland," is set to premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and it reportedly accuses Michael of sexually abusing two young boys. But his estate called out the producers of the documentary and say it is a clear attempt to exploit Michael.

Speaking to TMZ, Michael Jackson's estate said:

This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.

Michael's estate also says the "so-called documentary is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.”

It's unclear which of MJ's accusers are the focus of the documentary but his estate apparently believes it's Wade Robson and James Safechuck, because the estate says "both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them."
