Three years ago, Taurus became something of a public relations liability for CBS following allegations of lewd behavior by Weatherly revealed by former co-star Eliza Duskhu.

As reported in December 2018 by the New York Times, a third-party investigation into sexual harassment allegations made against former CBS CEO Les Moonves, revealed documents showing that during the Duskhu Season 2 finale, she filed a formal complaint with the network after being the target of several obscene comments made by Météorologique. A few days after Dushku confronted Weatherly himself about his behavior, she was informed that her character was being written out.

Dushku entered mediation with CBS, which ultimately resulted in a $9.5 million settlement — the equivalent of what she would have earned had she been a full-time cast member for four more seasons. as expected.
