Judd sued after "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jacksonsaid he didn't cast her in his films when Weinstein called her a "nightmare" to work with after she turned him down when he propositioned her. But the judge ruled that lawmakers had "modified, rather than clarified" the 1999 law, making it inappropriate to apply its new standards retroactively.
In an attempt to leave the room, Judd says, she made a "mock bargain" with Weinstein, "suggesting that she would consider letting him touch her only if she won an Academy Award in one of his films".
The rest of Judd's case, which includes claims of defamation, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage; and a violation of California's Unfair Competition Law, all for Weinstein's alleged badmouthing of Judd, which she claims significantly hurt her career. She said Weinstein continued to "lord that traumatic event" over her and would mention their "little deal".
Gutierrez took pains to say he "is not determining whether Plaintiff was sexually harassed in the colloquial sense of the term", but only whether the incident fell under the scope of the statute her lawsuit cited.

'We look forward to pursuing the three claims for relief that the court has already ruled can move forward'.
