Two-time Oscar winner Paul Haggis has beenfound liablefor raping a woman in 2013.

Haggis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter ofMillion Dollar Baby(2004) and an Oscar winner for his screenplay and direction of Best Picture winnerCrash(2004), was ordered to pay former publicist Haleigh Breest $7.5 million. Thats just for her compensation. The jury will decide the amount of the punitive damages next week.

There were never any criminal charges filed against Haggis. Breest filed her civil suit in 2017.

Breest says Haggis pressured her to return to his apartment after both attended a movie premiere. After they arrived, she says he raped her and forced her to perform oral sex.

Haggis doesnt deny having sex with Breest,  but says it was consensual.

Haggiss defense was that 1) recent spine surgery would have made it impossible for him to force anyone to do anything, 2) the Church of Scientology was out to destroy him, and 3) Breest was bitter and looking for payback because Haggis showed no further interest in here after their encounter.

Im obviously very disappointed in the results, Haggis said outside the courtroom. And Im going to continue to, with my team, fight to clear my name. Were going to keep our options as to what were going to do.

Working against Haggis was the fact that, at least according tomedia reports, he was unable to in any way connect Breest to Scientology.

Worse still, four other women testified that Haggis had sexually assaulted them:

The jury heard from about two dozen witnesses in all, including Haggis, Breest and four Jane Does  Deadline is not naming them who said Haggis sexually assaulted them, or attempted to, in separate incidents between 1996 and 2015 after using different ruses to get them alone. They are not parties to the lawsuit against Haggis, but a lawyer for Breest, Ilann Maazel, said in closing arguments that they give some insight into what his intent really was when he took Breest home. Maazel called Haggis a psychopath who planned and orchestrated his assault of Breest just as he had done with the other four women.

Back in June, Haggis was arrest for a rape charge in Italy. The case was eventually dismissed.

After Breests 2017 lawsuit was filed, a quick scan of IMDB will tell you Haggiss career came to almost a complete stop. Now that hes been found liable of rape in court, its hard to see how the 69-year-old will recover his career or reputation.

Haggis also wrote the James Bond filmsCasino RoyaleandQuantum of Solace, and created the iconic Chuck Norris showWalker: Texas Ranger.
