Judd, who was among the first women to publicly speak out about Weinstein's behavior previous year to The New York Times, notes that since the Weinstein story broke, "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson said Weinstein discouraged him from casting Judd.

In December, when Mr. Jackson told a publication in New Zealand that Mr. Weinstein had told him not to cast Ms. Judd or Mira Sorvino, Mr. Weinstein said in a statement that he had "no input into the casting whatsoever". I did not deal with them, I did not get trauma help, I did not get counseling, and all of a sudden... when Ronan [Farrow] asked me to talk to him about the Harvey Weinstein situation, I decided against all kinds of fear and terror to come out and speak.
Judd, a leading member of the "Time's Up" movement against sexual harassment in the workplace, is seeking unspecified damages and a jury trial.
The lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court claims Weinstein sabotaged Judd's opportunity to land a role in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy after she refused his advances at a breakfast meeting in the late 1990s.
