Court asks Kevin Spacey to pay $30M to House of Cards makers

A judge on Thursday ruled that Kevin Spacey and his production companies must pay the makers of House of Cards nearly $31 million

because of losses brought on by his 2017 firing for the sexual harassment of crew members.

The ruling from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mel Red Recana gives the force of law to the $30.9 award

in favor of MRC and other companies that produced the Netflix series by a private arbitrator who heard the case against Spacey.

The arbitrator found that Spacey violated his contract’s demands for professional behavior by “engaging certain conduct in connection with several crew members in each of the five seasons."

Spacey has denied the allegations through his attorneys and his spokesperson, who did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.
