State AG asks court to intervene in sale of Weinstein company

State AG asks court to intervene in sale of Weinstein company

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

Any sale of the Weinstein Company must ensure that victims will be compensated and that employees are protected going forward, the attorney general said.

Schneiderman's lawsuit alleges numerous instances of alleged harassment by Weinstein, including claims that multiple groups of Weinstein Company employees were responsible for facilitating Harvey's sexual encounters.

State attorney general Eric Schneiderman said the lawsuit was filed in New York County Supreme Court and included new allegations about Weinstein's "vicious and exploitative mistreatment" of employees.

Schneiderman's lawsuit includes dozens of specific examples of misconduct, including allegations that he told several employees, "I will kill you", "I will kill your family", and "You don't know what I can do".




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.

He allegedly boasted he had connections with the Secret Service that could take care of his problems.

Weinstein's drivers in Los Angeles and NY were required to keep condoms and erectile dysfunction injections in the auto at all times, papers charge.

The suit charges that the human resources department at the Weinstein Company was completely corrupt.

Harvey Weinstein's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, could not immediately be reached Sunday evening.
