Julia Ormond sues Harvey Weinstein for sexual assault, claims Miramax and Disney knew he was ‘a danger’

Julia Ormond accused disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in New York.

The suit, which also named Creative Arts Agency (CAA), The Walt Disney Company and Weinstein’s former Miramax production banner, was filed under the Adult Survivors Act, a law passed in 2022 that allows a temporary window for those who allege sexual assault to file past the state’s normal deadlines.

Ormond, who starred in “Sabrina” with Harrison Ford and worked on multiple films with Brad Pitt, claimed in documents obtained by Fox News Digital that she was “supposed to have a business dinner to discuss a project,” but Weinstein kept changing the subject and would “only discuss the project back at the apartment Miramax had provided Ormond as part of their first-look deal with her.”

Weinstein denied the allegations in a statement provided to Fox News Digital by his attorney, Imran H. Ansari. 

Fox News Digital has reached out to Miramax and The Walt Disney Company for comment.
