Cameron Mitchell Reacts To Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
CAA agent Cameron Mitchell’s rep has released a statement, addressing an actress that is suing him and CAA for sexual harassment. The statement reads,
CAA agent Cameron Mitchell emphatically denies any wrongdoing in regards to accusations filed in a civil suit by aspiring actress Demi Mann, who had been under consideration for representation, as is a common practice, but has never been a client of CAA. In fact, Mitchell is adamant that the allegations are not only false, but egregious. Approximately two months ago, just two days after Mitchell communicated that he could no longer consider representation of Mann at CAA, she contacted HR at the agency with complaints against Mitchell. Mann’s allegations appear to be a calculated attempt to justify remaining in the U.S., as she is here on a temporary visa.
When the charges were initially made directly to CAA’s HR department against both Mitchell and CAA, the agency conducted a comprehensive internal investigation over a three week period, which concluded two weeks prior to the civil filing and concluded that the charges were unfounded. He has been a key agent in the motion picture department at CAA for five years with such illustrious clients as Common, Djimon Hounsou, Gabrielle Union, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Reginald Hudlin, Terrence Howard and Will Packer. His reputation as a client’s advocate precedes him in all of his business dealings throughout his renowned 12 year career.
Mitchell’s counsel, Stephen Larson said,
In the current climate, it is not unexpected that there will be individuals willing to make unfounded complaints in an attempt to dig into deep pockets. It is sad that Ms. Mann has chosen to take this path.
