Devin McRae was quoted in The Hollywood Reporter, IndieWire and The Wrap regarding Harvey Weinstein’s potential lawsuit against the New York Times, his employment contract with The Weinstein Company, and the use of Hollywood NDAs in cases of felony sex crime allegations.
Devin told The Hollywood Reporter “If he brings a defamation claim, he’s going to have to identify the specific facts reported in the article that are not true,”and “Everyone is going to assume that everything he doesn’t take issue with was, in fact, true.”
Devin told IndieWire “The provision demonstrates that the company was well aware of his propensities,” “And so much so that it came into the negotiation of the contract, in which it was, ‘You could keep your job if you keep doing this.’”
Devin told The Wrap “Attorneys have to tread carefully in these confidentiality provisions, because if they don’t, they could open themselves up to professional discipline and in some cases criminal prosecution.”
