i'd have to assume these were pretty good lawyers because (hollywood) so what happens when a lawyer company deliberately lies about something as serious as this? surely there' s no way this could have been an accident?

Girls” writer Murray Miller — who has been accused of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau — had initially claimed that Perrineau had demanded money from him. Now his lawyers are apologizing, saying that claim was incorrect — and that she’d never requested damages.

In a statement to Variety, Donald Walerstein and Matthew Walerstein wrote, “In a previous statement to the media, we stated that Ms. Perrineau sought substantial monetary damages from our client Murray Miller. Neither Ms. Perrineau nor her attorney have ever made a demand for money. Our previous above statement was incorrect and the result of a good-faith misunderstanding.”

  Lena Dunham says she warned Clinton campaign about Harvey Weinstein Actress Lena Dunham said she warned Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager about disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and was uncomfortable with his presence during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to a report out Tuesday. The “Girls” star told The New York Times that she heard stories about Weinstein from other actresses who claimed they had troubling interactions with him, so in March of 2016 she warned Clinton campaign deputy communications manager Kristina Schake about him.“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” Dunham said she told the campaign.

Attorneys for Murray Miller , the “ Girls ” writer who was accused of sexual assault , no longer claim that the alleged victim demanded money . Dec 07, 2017 | 8:38 PM. “ Girls ” writer Murray Miller has retracted his claim that Aurora Perrineau, who accused him of rape, demanded money after her

In their initial response, Matthew Walerstein had denied the allegations against Miller and said, “After being contacted several weeks ago by lawyers who—on Ms. Perrineau’s behalf—sought substantial monetary damages from him, Mr. Miller’s legal team gathered overwhelming evidence directly contradicting these false and offensive claims. Only after her demands for money were rebuffed did Ms. Perrineau go to the police.”

Perrineau did in fact file a report to the L.A. County Sheriff, and the LAPD is conducting an investigation.

Girls” co-showrunners Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner were also compelled to backtrack for their role in the case, and apologized for their initial statement, which they had offered in defense of Miller. “While our first instinct is to listen to every woman’s story, our insider knowledge of Murray’s situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year,” they wrote. “It is a true shame to add to that number, as outside of Hollywood women still struggle to be believed.”
