As reported in December 2018 by New York Times, showed a third-party investigation into allegations of sexual harassment against former CBS boss Les Moonve’s papers, which showed that during Duskhus’ late season 2 run, she filed a formal complaint with the network after receiving several obscene comments from Weather. Days after Dushku confronted Weatherly herself about his behavior, she was informed that her character was being written off.

Dushku began mediation with CBS, which eventually led to a $ 9.5 million settlement – equivalent to what she would have earned if she had become a full-time crew member for four more seasons, as anticipated.
