Is this a good thing or a bad thing for Casey Affleck?
Obviously the man wants this to be over with, but an extension on the deadline for his case COULD mean that both parties are negotiating a settlement.
When asked to comment though, Affleck’s attorney said that no settlement negotiations are underway.
The new deadline for Casey's first accuser Amanda White to submit her opposition brief to Affleck’s motion to move the case from Los Angeles Superior Court to private arbitration is Sept 9th.
On Sept 10th, Affleck’s film I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is scheduled for U.S. release. We’re sure Casey would LOVE to solve this thing before the film is released.
This case gets more messy by the day. What could possibly happen next? Is Joaquin Phoenix going to come forward and sue Casey for sexual harassment as well?
