Gutierrez had already rejected the claim in November but allowed Judd's lawyers to amend it, then dismissed it again. Gutierrez said Judd's allegations of defamation and economic interference can continue.
Judd attorney Theodore Boutrous Jr. says nothing about the ruling changes the fact that Judd's lawsuit is moving forward, and her strong case remains intact. Judd says that after she rejected Weinstein's sexual advances two decades ago, he sabotaged her career.
The 66-year-old Weinstein also faces criminal prosecution in New York. Weinstein has denied engaging in nonconsensual sexual activity.
