Magdalena Gorka sues Casey Affleck in second harassment lawsuit
News broke that Casey Affleck was being sued by Amanda White for sexual harassment Friday, July 23 -- and now another woman has come forward and filed her own lawsuit.
THR, Esq. is reporting that Magdalena Gorka, a cinematographer for the same Joaquin Phoenix documentary for which White was a producer, has filed $2.25 million lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court. Gorka is claiming claiming Affleck climbed into bed with her and groped her as she slept.
"During the middle of the night, [Gorka] awoke to find Affleck lying in the bed next to her," the lawsuit alleges. "Unbeknownst to [Gorka], Affleck had entered the bedroom while she was asleep and crawled into the bed. When she woke up, Affleck was curled up next to her in the bed wearing only his underwear and a t-shirt. He had his arm around her, was caressing her back, his face was within inches of hers and his breath reeked of alcohol."
Affleck has fervently denied the first lawsuit and has filed his own court papers asking for private arbitration.
