Judge dismisses Ashley Judd's harassment claim against Harvey Weinstein, but other claims can proceed

Judd has alleged that Weinstein harassed her during a 1998 meeting in his room at the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills. The actress claims Weinstein asked for a massage and then requested she watch him take a shower.

After rejecting his overtures, Judd says Weinstein embarked on a campaign against her, including making disparaging remarks about her to Peter Jackson, the director of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Jackson later confirmed that he removed Judd from consideration for the movies after meeting with Weinstein.

Judd was one of the first actresses to publicly accuse Weinstein of misconduct. Since then, the producer has been accused by more than 80 women of harassment and assault.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of unwanted sexual contact.
