According to CNN, Robinson had worked as De Niro’s personal assistant since 2008. She gradually obtained managerial positions at Canal Productions and in 2019, when she left the company, she was vice president.
Robinson complained in the lawsuit that she was given “stereotypically feminine jobs,” such as washing and vacuuming in the actor’s apartment, as well as in management positions. She further claimed that De Niro made unwanted touching and sexually suggestive comments.

On Thursday, the court awarded the former employee compensation in the amount of 1.3 million dollars. The discrimination trial against De Niro, who testified at the trial, did not convict anyone else.
The court also dismissed the lawsuit filed by Canal Productions against Robinson. According to the company, after leaving the company, the employee appropriated points from loyalty programs for airline clients. The company also blamed Robinson for watching TV series during working hours or excessive personal expenses.
According to the AP agency, both sides claimed to have succeeded in court. Robinson’s attorney, David Sandford, says the court ruled in favor of his client. De Niro’s attorney, Richard Schoenstein, pointed out that the court did not convict his client and that Robinson was awarded only a fraction of the $12 million the woman was seeking. Schoenstein declined to say whether Canal Productions would appeal the ruling, according to CNN.
