Affleck vows to sue sex harassment accuser

Casey Affleck is firing back at the woman who sued him today for sexual harassment during the shoot of his upcoming Joaquin Phoenix documentary.

Michael Plonsker, a litigator repping Affleck and production company Flemmy Prods, just issued this statement denying the allegations and vowing to file cross-claims against Amanda White, who worked on "I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix" and says Affleck refused to pay her when she wouldn’t spend the night in a hotel room with him. 

"The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit," Plonsker says. "Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken. The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her."
