Kevin Spacey has been ordered to pay USD 31 million as damages
For alleged sexual misconduct that occurred behind the scenes of the Netflix White House drama, Kevin Spacey has been ordered to pay the production company of House of Cards, MRC, up to USD 31 million. After being accused of sexually assaulting young men, including a production assistant, the actor was fired from the show during its sixth season.
Judge Mel Red Recana of the Los Angeles Superior Court upheld an arbitration judgement that was made in October 2020 and included around USD 29.5 million in damages as well as USD 1.5 million in costs and fees.
Kevin Spacey attempted to dismiss the complaint
Previously, Spacey’s attorneys attempted to dismiss this complaint by arguing that his actions amounted to nothing more than “sexual innuendos” and “harmless horseplay” and did not contravene MRC’s anti-harassment policy.
Kevin is also involved in a legal battle in the UK
The actor is currently involved in a legal battle in the UK as well. The U.K.’s Crown Prosecution Service has charged Spacey with four charges of sexual assault. Also, one allegation of “causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual conduct without consent” (CPS). The actor will go on trial in June 2023 after entering a not guilty plea to the allegations. Spacey is still scheduled to act in the upcoming movie Peter Five Eight, after being accused of numerous crimes.
