Man, CAA really fired back at Julia Ormond, the British actress who sued the agency yesterday claiming her reps in the ’90s not only knew Harvey Weinstein was a predator when they sent her alone into meetings with him, but actively discouraged her from reporting the inevitable gruesome assault by the now-convicted rapist. Along with a blanket denial, the agency revealed publicly that Ormond’s lawyers wanted $15 million to settle, which CAA “immediately rejected,” and hired the Paul Weiss law firm, a veteran of #MeToo work for Fox News and others, which conducted an “investigation” that found “nothing to support Ms. Ormond’s claims against CAA.” Okay, then! Please disperse, nothing to see here, right?
