Rose McGowan’s lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein dismissed after missing court deadline


Rose McGowan’s lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein was dismissed by a California judge.

According to court documents viewed by Fox News Digital, Central District California Judge Otis D. Wright dismissed the McGowan case with prejudice on December 6, meaning it cannot be raised again later. The decision comes after it has missed a deadline set by the court.

The actress was one of the first to publicly claim that the disgraced movie mogul raped her in 1997 while they were at the Sundance Film Festival. Hers was among many shocking allegations by several women who made similar allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein that ultimately led to his rape conviction in 2020.

In October 2019, McGowan made further allegations against Weinstein, alleging he had used his financial power to discredit his allegations when he learned she would publish them in detail in his 2018 book, “Brave.” She believes Weinstein’s actions, which included his ex-lawyers Lisa Bloom and David Boies as well as spy and intelligence firm Black Cube Strategies, violated the law on corrupt organizations influenced by racketeering.

However, it looks like the case will not move forward after McGowan fails to provide the court with more documented evidence of his case within the proposed time frame. According to the documents, McGowan was told on November 9 that she had until December 2 to file further documents in the case or until December 3 to file a further brief as directed by the court.

“As of today, the plaintiff has not filed any brief in response to the order of the court and the order of the minutes. Accordingly, the plaintiff is deemed to have conceded the two points that the court gave him the opportunity to argue in the supplementary brief, “the documents read. “As a result, the Court finds that the claimant is unable to sufficiently plead a RICO claim, which means that a further amendment would be futile.”

Neither McGowan nor Weinstein’s reps immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.
