New York AG sues Harvey Weinstein following sexual misconduct allegations

Share

The New York Attorney General's office has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein's company and its founders.

The public discussion on sexual harassment and assault sparked by the allegations against Hollywood giant Harvey Weinstein has been chosen as the Canadian Press News Story of the Year, by reporters and editors across the country. The group, officially led by former Small Business Administration chief Maria Contreras-Sweet, was expected to seal a $500 million deal as soon as Sunday. The company later fired Weinstein.

Harvey Weinstein faces sexual misconduct investigations in four separate jurisdictions in the wake of the avalanche of sexual misconduct accusations against him in the last few month, which he denies.

The lawsuit goes into explicit detail accusing Weinstein of abusing his power as an executive to take sexual advantage of women employees.

A tweet from Nice at half-time in Saturday's match said Balotelli had "picked up a yellow card after. getting annoyed at fans' racist abuse".

The office also said, "drivers in both New York City and Los Angeles were required to keep condoms and erectile dysfunction injections in the vehicle at all times, in order to provide them to (Weinstein) as needed". "One of the members of this entourage was flown from London to NY to teach HW's assistants how to dress and smell more attractive to HW".

Harvey Weinstein has been accused by almost 100 women of sexual harassment, bullying, or rape.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Schneiderman says Harvey persistently sexually harassed female employees at TWC by personally creating a hostile work environment and demanding quid pro quo sexual favors for continued employment or career advancement.

A representative for Weinstein could not be immediately reached for comment Sunday.
