New York state sues Weinstein Company
    2018-February-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

NEW YORK prosecutors have filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein Company, alleging that the studio failed to protect staff from Harvey Weinstein.

The film producer is facing dozens of allegations of sexual abuse, including rape, but denies non-consensual sex.

The lawsuit alleges Weinstein abused female employees and made verbal threats to kill staff members.

A lawyer for Weinstein said a “fair investigation” would show that many of the allegations were without merit.

The Weinstein Company is yet to comment.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said on Sunday that he had filed the suit against the Weinstein Company, as well as Weinstein and his brother Robert, who co-founded the studio.

He is seeking an unspecified sum to cover damages, plus penalties, for victims of alleged abuse by Harvey Weinstein, 65.

The document alleges that Weinstein sexually harassed and abused women employed by the studio for years.

It accuses senior executives at the company, including Robert Weinstein, of failing to prevent the mistreatment of staff despite being presented with evidence.

In response, Weinstein’s lawyer Ben Brafman said while his client’s behaviour “was not without fault,” there was “no criminality.”

“At the end of the inquiry it will be clear that Weinstein promoted more women to key executive positions than any other industry leader and there was zero discrimination at either Miramax or [the Weinstein Company].” he said.
