However, Ms Judd's claim that the Oscar-winning producer "blackballed" her after she refused his advances would still be heard, Judge Gutierrez said.
"The Court makes clear that it is not determining whether Plaintiff was sexually harassed in the colloquial sense of the term", he wrote in his decision.
She sued Harvey under the legal theory "sexual harassment in professional relationship".
"Nothing about today's ruling changes that Ms. Judd's case is moving forward on multiple claims", Theodore Boutrous Jr., the lead lawyer representing Judd's case, said in a statement reported by The New York Times Wednesday. In September of 2018, Gutierrez dismissed the same part of the suit, but Judd tried to restore the claim. Also, the legislature apparently didn't specifically state that the "new" law can or should be applied retroactively, so he's not allowing Judd to cite it in her suit. She said Weinstein continued to "lord that traumatic event" over her and would mention their "little deal".
Despite "serious discussions to play a major role in the Lord of the Rings trilogy", court documents state, Judd wasn't cast in the film. Judd says she didn't learn of a possible reason until 2017, when Jackson said in an interview that Weinstein had told him Judd was "a nightmare to work with" who should be avoided "at all costs".
The rest of Judd's case, which includes claims of defamation, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage; and a violation of California's Unfair Competition Law, all for Weinstein's alleged badmouthing of Judd, which she claims significantly hurt her career.
He added: "While we respectfully disagree with the Court's decision as to the one claim it ruled on today, we look forward to pursuing the three claims for relief that the court has already ruled can move forward".
Judd was among the first women in Hollywood to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct in a series of reports published by The New York Times and The New Yorker last October. He has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex. Dozens of women have accused the former Weinstein Company owner of varying levels of abuse, including harassment, assault, and even rape.
Weinstein's lawyer, Phyllis Kupferstein, said: "We believe that we will ultimately prevail on her remaining claims".
Mr Weinstein is to stand trial in May in NY on five charges, including rape, involving two other women.
Weinstein vehemently denied trying to derail Judd's career, and in August, he filed a motion asking for the actress' case to be dismissed, declaring the accusations are based on unfounded speculation.
