The revelation came in a petition filed Monday in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, in which MRC is asking the court “to confirm the award in its favor and enter judgment against Spacey and his loan-out and producing companies.”
Spacey and MRC have been battling in the years since the actor was dismissed from the production over allegations of misconduct on and off the set.
In its filing, MRC states that in October of 2020, an arbitrator found Spacey “repeatedly breached his contractual obligations” while starring as Frank Underwood on the Emmy-winning show and that his behavior “rendered him (and his affiliated entities) liable” for the millions of dollars lost by MRC.
“MRC had no knowledge whatsoever of any such conduct by Spacey with any cast or crew associated with the Show,” the filing states.
Following Rapp’s claims, Spacey issued a statement claiming he did not recall the incident and apologized for what he said would have been “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”
After Spacey was terminated, the petition says that MRC had to “rewrite the entire season to omit Spacey’s character, and to shorten Season 6 from 13 to 8 episodes to meet delivery deadlines” and suffered monetary losses as a result.
Following the arbitrator’s decision, MRC released a statement on the ruling, “The safety of our employees, sets and work environments is of paramount importance to MRC and why we set out to push for accountability.”
CNN has reached out to Spacey’s attorneys for comment.
