Added Boutrous: "Our aim in bringing this suit is to hold Mr. Weinstein accountable for his retaliation against Ms. Judd, defamation of her business reputation, and interference with her career, and to shine a light on the broader economic damages caused when individuals in positions of authority attempt to punish those who have resisted their improper advances".
A spokesperson for the movie executive told The New Yorker in a prior statement: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".
"Weinstein's wrongful and outrageous conduct has not just deprived Ms. Judd of the specific opportunity to play a prominent role in a blockbuster film trilogy; it has had a long-lasting ripple effect on her whole career", the complaint said.
Weinstein was ousted from the company he founded in October over allegations by numerous women that he harassed or assaulted them.
Weinstein's reps issued a statement which read, "The most basic investigation of the facts will reveal that Mr. Weinstein neither defamed Ms. Judd nor ever interfered with Ms. Judd's career, and instead not only championed her work but also repeatedly approved her casting for two of his movies over the next decade. We look forward to a vigorous defense of these claims".

Luis Enrique close to taking over Premier League side…but it's not Arsenal
Simeone's Atletico Madrid side will face Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at the Emirates tonight. Wenger said he would have no say as to who succeeds him but spoke highly of former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique.
The "High Crimes" actress was allegedly in talks to star in "LOTR", but Weinstein "torpedoed" her chances by telling Jackson she "was a "nightmare" to work with and should be avoided 'at all costs'". "But this year it kind of came home to roost... not only the story that all of you guys know, but something that [happened earlier]".
"Mr. Weinstein has nothing but the utmost respect for Peter Jackson".
"Peter & Fran had me in - showed me all the creative, the boards, costumes, everything. Then all of a sudden, mysteriously, we never heard back". "I appreciate the truth coming out".
"No person - in whatever job, in whatever industry - should have to forfeit professional aspirations and the right to earn a living to the abusive whims of the powerful", Judd's suit says.
The lawsuit filed by Judd on Monday laid out a pattern of retaliatory behavior by Weinstein against actresses who rebuffed his sexual advances - what California courts have described as "me too" evidence in employment cases.
