Harvey Weinstein now target of lawsuit by NY attorney general

Posted February 12, 2018

New York Attorney-General Eric Schneiderman said on Sunday he had filed suit against The Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein, and Robert Weinstein, alleging the company's executives and board failed to protect employees from movie producer and former CEO Harvey Weinstein.

"The Weinstein Company repeatedly broke NY law by failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation, and discrimination", said Schneiderman in a statement. The lawsuit demands that any money from the sale of the company must compensate victims. The suit references the Weinstein Company's COO, but does not use Glasser's name.

Weinstein, a former Hollywood titan, was accused of sexual assault and harassment by dozens of women.

Weinstein, the disgraced movie mogul, was ousted from his role at The Weinstein Company a year ago after numerous reports of sexual misconduct.
