Canadian filmmaker Paul Haggis will not testify next week in sexual misconduct suit
The Oscar-winner's attorney said the deposition date scheduled for Monday did not work
A scheduled deposition of Paul Haggis in a lawsuit in which the Oscar-winner is accused of rape will not go forward as planned next week.
The lawsuit, filed in December, prompted three additional women to detail to The Associated Press their own sexual misconduct accusations, including another who says he raped her. They aren't identified in court papers.
Breest's attorneys have asked for the deposition to be immediately rescheduled. They also criticized Lepera for requesting a settlement which was then characterized as extortion in the countersuit.
Lepera did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
