Casey Affleck Settles Sexual Harassment Case
The filmmaker-actor reaches an agreement with two women who worked on I'm Still Here
Casey Affleck has settled out of court with two women who filed sexual-harassment lawsuits against him for alleged incidents on the set of I’m Still Here, Affleck’s documentary about his brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix.
“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,” reps for Affleck said in a statement, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Financial details of the settlement were not made public. Producer White and cinematographer Gorka will receive credit for their work on the film despite having quit because of what they felt was a hostile work environment.
White and Gorka sued Affleck, 35, in July for $2 million and $2.25 million, respectively. Affleck had threatened to countersue.
The two sides reportedly held a secret mediation a few weeks ago that ultimately led to the settlement.
