Kevin Spacey To Pay Ridiculous Amount Of Money Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations ...

Kevin Spacey was essentially re-trained from the production company behind House of Cards after receiving a $31 million fine from the public. However, Judge Recan stated that he could not infer that Kevin Spacey's decision was based on anything other than the facts of the parties' agreements.

Kevin Spacey is on the hook for a staggering $31 million in damages, costs, and fees related to sexual misconduct allegations related to his time on Netflix's House of Cards. According to Deadline, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mel Red Recan enforced a decision that had previously been made in arbitration, effectively confirming the amount being contested by Kevin Spacey's legal team in 2017.

Judge Recan's verdict consisted of fourteen pages and contained a note that Kevin Spacey failed to argue why his $31 million judgment by arbitrator Bruce Friedman should be overturned. However, Judge Recan stated that he could not infer that Friedman's decision was based on anything other than the parties' agreements, i.e., that external sources influenced it.

Kevin Spacey was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of allegedly abusing him in 1986, when Rapp was 14 years old. A subsequent MRC investigation resulted in his being suspended, then re-signed, and a final season being rewritten to fit his absence.

Kevin Spacey was fired from a variety of film roles, including House of Cards, which revolved largely around his character, corrupt politician Frank Underwood. Most famously, he was removed from Ridley Scott's film All the Money in the World, in which he would play American tycoon J. Paul Getty.

Kevin Spacey has been largely persona non grata in an industry that once held him in high regard. He had recently begun to show signs of attempting a comeback and was sacked from at least one after public outcry. At least for the time being, his effort to get the MRCs' damages vacated is dead in the water. He will be required to pay them the staggering $31 million.
