New York State Files A Civil Rights Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein
12 February, 2018, 02:11 | Author: Alicia Barber
The state of NY filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, his brother and their eponymous production company Sunday for "egregious violations" of civil rights, human rights and business laws. It targets Harvey Weinstein for allegations of sexual misconduct.
The lawsuit, filed Sunday in New York County Supreme Court, comes amid negotiations over the sale of the company and its future leadership.
Schneider's office says the lawsuit, which can be read below, "is the result of an ongoing four month investigation" into Weinstein and the company he co-founded.

So the England forward will have been delighted to have been presented with an nearly identical opportunity just three minutes in. City put his valuation at around USD$90 million and wasn't budging as it moves on from the era of more wild spending sprees.
The lawsuit alleges that the company broke NY law and violated the company's employees' rights by "failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation, and discrimination", Schneiderman said in a statement.
The complaint noted several instances of Weinstein allegedly groping and exposing himself to women at work. A second group of female employees at TWC was tasked with contacting Weinstein's sexual parters and ensuring there was space on his calendar for sexual activity, while a third group would follow up with prospective sexual conquests regarding Weinstein's employment promises.
The suit also includes claims from employees that Weinstein demanded sexual favors in exchange for career advancement.
Schneiderman launched a civil rights probe into the New York City-based company in October after The New York Times and The New Yorker exposed allegations of sexual assault and harassment spanning decades.
In one example, an assistant wrote an email complaint to human resources regarding Weinstein's behavior only to find it forwarded directly to him via email minutes later, according to the suit. Despite the fact that the employee reported the incident in 2015 to the human resources and to board members at TWC, no formal action was taken to investigate and to protect employees from further misconduct.
