Protection Of Staff: New York Lawyer Sues Weinstein Company

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

The film producer is facing dozens of allegations of sexual abuse, including rape, but denies non-consensual sex.

 

The lawsuit alleges that Mr Weinstein abused female employees and made verbal threats to kill staff members.

 

Meanwhile, a lawyer for Mr Weinstein said a "fair investigation" would show that many of the allegations were without merit, but the Weinstein Company is yet to comment.
