In 2020, an arbitration concluded that Kevin Spacey should compensate for the losses and costs associated with these changes.

But his lawyers claimed that the person in charge of the arbitration had exceeded its prerogatives taking into account certain evidence.

On Thursday, however, Judge Mel Red Recana confirmed that the fallen Hollywood icon should pay nearly $31 million in damages and litigation costs.

The judge recalled that, according to the arbitration findings, Kevin Spacey had violated the terms of his contract due to his alleged behavior.

Kevin Spacey has always denied sexually harassing anyone.

In House of Cards, the actor played the unscrupulous politician Frank Underwood.

In mid-July, he pleaded not guilty in London to sexual assaults committed between March 2005 and April 2013.

In the United States, Kevin Spacey was charged with indecent assault and sexual assault in the state of Massachusetts, on the East Coast. He was accused of having, in July 2016, got his hands on the penis of an 18-year-old young man employed in a bar, after having made him drink.

But the charges had been dropped in July 2019.
