A Manhattan judge has thrown out a lawsuit brought against Tony Award-winning producer Dede Harris, which had alleged that her sexually inappropriate behavior caused an off-Broadway play to fail.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Herman Cahn also sanctioned both a principal of Martian Entertainment, attorney Peter R. Stern, and the company’s counsel, solo practitioner Andrew Schwab, $5,000 each. Stern is of counsel to McLaughlin & Stern.
