    Peter Jackson 'might testify' against Weinstein in Ashley Judd's lawsuit, lawyer says

    Peter Jackson has spoken with Ashley Judd's legal team and could contribute a "powerful" testimony in support of her defamation and sexual harassment lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, Judd's lawyer has said. Judd's civil suit, filed in April, accused the disgraced Hollywood producer of discouraging Jackson in 1998 from casting her in his blockbuster franchise Lord of the Rings, as a form of retaliation for her refusing Weinstein's sexual advances. The lawsuit cited an interview with Jackson published by the New Zealand website Stuff in December 2017, quoting him as saying he had heard from Weinstein's former production company, Miramax, that Judd was a "nightmare to work with".

    Frenchman at centre of Nobel scandal on trial for rape

    The man at the centre of a sexual assault scandal that prompted the Swedish Academy to postpone this year's Nobel Literature Prize denied two counts of rape as his first hearing ended on Wednesday. Frenchman Jean-Claude Arnault was an influential figure on Stockholm's cultural scene for decades, until the explosive sexual assault accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein sparked a wave of similar allegations around the world. Married to Katarina Frostenson, a member of the Swedish Academy which has been selecting Nobel literature laureates since 1901, Arnault ran the Forum club in Stockholm.

    Lawyer says director Peter Jackson might testify against Weinstein in Judd's lawsuit

    Judd's civil suit, filed in April, accused Weinstein of discouraging Jackson in 1998 from casting her in the blockbuster "Lord of the Rings" movie franchise in retaliation for her refusing Weinstein's sexual advances. The lawsuit cited an interview with Jackson published by the New Zealand news website Stuff in December 2017 quoting him as saying he had heard from Weinstein's former film company, Miramax, that Judd was a "nightmare to work with." The New Zealand director, according to the Stuff article, said that assessment of Judd persuaded him not to cast her but he later came to believe she was the victim of a "smear campaign." A spokeswoman for Jackson declined to comment further on Tuesday. The article surfaced as a central topic at a hearing on Tuesday in which Weinstein's attorney Phyllis Kupferstein asked U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez in Los Angeles to dismiss Judd's lawsuit.
