In 2018, CBS agree to pay Dushku $9.5 million after she announced she was dropped from “Bull” in retaliation for the allegations she made against Michael Weatherly.

Before Congress, Dushku was able to speak outside of a non-disclosure agreement.

The actress said in her testimony, “In 2017, I was aggressively hunted by CBS to be the co-star on a show called ‘Bull’.” I learned that the role would be a six-year commitment to playing the role of a strong, intelligent female leader – a highly capable and powerful lawyer meant to be a counterweight to the current male lead. yes, and this role was written specifically for me. . However, during my first week at my new job, I found myself subjected to violent, erotic, and verbal assaults. I was almost sexually harassed by my co-star constantly. “

Dushku added that Weatherly called her “foot” and talked about his sperm.

“During the filming of our show, I made fun of some lines in the script. When Eliza told me she was uncomfortable with my language and tried to be funny, I felt embarrassed for offending her and immediately apologized.” The weather told the New York Times in 2018. “After thinking more about this, I come to understand better that what I said was both unpleasant and inappropriate and I am both sorry and sorry for the pain this has caused Eliza.”

“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s statement are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work I’m far from done,” CBS said in a statement to CNN around the time of the contract. The settlement of these claims reflects the expected amount Ms. Dushku will receive for her contract balance as a regular series and is determined in a mutually agreed upon mediation process. at that time.”

Dushku said she hopes to help others end the secret arbitration process she feels compelled to participate in regarding her allegations.
