NY attorney general files civil rights suit against Harvey Weinstein, Weinstein Co

12 February 2018

Mr Weinstein has been accused by more than 50 women of allegations ranging from rape to sexual harassment.

The New York attorney general says that Robert Weinstein, who was aware of his brother's sexual misconduct, allowed Harvey to create a hostile work environment and engage in sexual misconduct, for which he was responsible for preventing.

The Met Police are now investigating nine different accusations from women against Weinstein.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein Company and its founders, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, alleging that they committed "egregious violations of New York's civil rights, human rights, and business laws".

The lawsuit has halted a potential sale of the company.

"Any sale of The Weinstein Company must ensure that victims will be compensated, employees will be protected going forward and that neither perpetrators nor enablers will be unjustly enriched". The suit references the Weinstein Company's COO, but does not use Glasser's name.

The lawsuit is part of an ongoing four-month investigation and includes interviews with multiple survivors of the alleged sexual misconduct, employees, and company executives.
