Harvey Weinstein Is Being Sued for Sex Trafficking

Harvey Weinstein Is Being Sued for Sex Trafficking

Weinstein, who been accused of sexual misconduct by several women, was removed from the members listing on the organisation's website on Friday (24Nov17) and on Monday (27Nov17), Harvey released a statement to Deadline confirming he is no longer a part of the DGA.

Now complaint filed in federal court on this side of the Atlantic today by actress Kadian Noble claims Weinstein sexually assaulted her at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and TWC covered it up for another 'Friend of Harvey'.

The alleged "value" in this case was the potential for a role in one of Weinstein's films, according to the complaint.

During the encounter, the lawsuit said, Weinstein put Noble on the phone with a producer from his company who told her to be "a good girl and do whatever he wished" and if she did "they would work" with her further. "Multiple TWC employees participated in the recruitment or enticement of Kadian into a victim of a commercial sex act", the suit states.

The actress is now suing The Weinstein Co. for damages from the assault, with Noble alleging that Weinstein told her, "Everything will be taken care of for you if you relax", after attempting to fight back against the mogul.

The lawsuit, filed in NY, goes on to say that despite telling him to stop, he "forcibly pulled" her into the bathroom where he stripped and groped her, forcing her to perform sexual acts.

Once there, the lawsuit said Harvey Weinstein "began massaging Kadian and then gripped her shoulders". "If the US prosecutors balk at the enormity of what they must do, the civil court in the United Kingdom may offer Weinstein's alleged British victims some hope of recognition and justice", she wrote.

The tradition of hanging a Christmas tree upside down from the ceiling is an old one in Central and Eastern Europe. And, as Chris Nucifora said, it was good to have some advice from people with tree-cutting experience.

On her Web site, per Deadline, Greenfield compared this suit to several unfolding USA investigations of Weinstein.

Nobel says he cornered her in the hotel bathroom, groped her, and then forced himself on her.

She "told him to stop and attempted to leave the bathroom, but (he) blocked her exit", the filing reads.

The company violated USA sex trafficking law by "benefiting from, and knowingly facilitating, the venture in which Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce to recruit or entice female actors into forced or coerced sexual encounters on the promise of roles", states the lawsuit.

Neither a representative for Bob Weinstein nor The Weinstein Company immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.

Harvey Weinstein's spokesman Holly Baird said: "Mr Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex".
