“Scrubs” producer Eric Weinberg, who has pleaded not guilty to 18 criminal counts of sexual assault, also is denying the allegations of two women who have filed separate civil suits against him.
In their Los Angeles Superior Court complaints filed Nov. 7, plaintiffs identified only as C.D. and A.B. allege sexual assault, sexual battery, gender violence, assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. C.D. also alleges sexual harassment.
C.D. alleges that Weinberg enticed her to his Los Feliz home in February 2019 and sexually assaulted her after making an appointment with her for a photo session to boost her modeling career. A.B. alleges Weinberg induced her to visit his residence in December 2019 and sexually assaulting her.
In court papers filed Wednesday citing 25 affirmative defenses, an attorney for Weinberg denies all of the allegations of the two women and says both plaintiffs consented and acquiesced to the producer’s conduct, that they invited or granted permission for his actions and that they assumed the risk of the activities in which they were engaged.
The Weinberg attorney’s court papers also cite claims of self-defense and defense of others on behalf of the producer. No supporting information is given to explain Weinberg’s assertions.
The 62-year-old Weinberg’s other credits include “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher,” “Californication” and “American Dad.”
