    New York attorney general files suit against Weinstein Co.

    Eric Schneiderman alleges company executives and the board repeatedly failed to protect employees

    New York's attorney general filed a suit Sunday against the Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein and his brother Robert Weinstein for "egregious violations" of the state's civil rights, human rights and business laws.

    In a press release, Eric Schneiderman alleges executives from the company and its board consistently failed to protect employees from Harvey Weinstein, who was CEO at the time.

    The suit, which is the result of a four-month investigation, includes "new and extensive allegations" about Harvey Weinstein's "vicious and exploitative mistreatment of company employees." Groups of women allegedly facilitated sexual activity

    Numerous accounts of sexual harassment, intimidation, and other misconduct have been gathered.

    Among them are claims that Weinstein used threatening language such as "I will kill your family" and "you don't know what I can do," telling employees he had connections in high positions to take care of problems.

    The suit also states that Weinstein had three separate groups of predominantly female employees: one to "facilitate" his "sexual conquests," and another made up of assistants to maintain space on his calendar for "regular sexual activity.

    A third group of women, mainly female executives, was required "to meet with prospective sexual conquests" and to follow through on Weinstein's "promise of employment opportunities to women" who met with his favour.

    "This compelled service demeaned and humiliated them, contributing to the hostile work environment," the law suit says. 'Hostile' environment could continue under new name

    The complaint, filed in New York's Supreme Court, seeks to "remedy a years-long gender-based hostile work environment, a pattern of quid pro quo sexual harassment, and routine misuse of corporate resources for unlawful ends" between 2005 and October 2017.

    The attorney general says the investigation is ongoing, however the suit was introduced because of the imminent sale of the company, which could "leave victims without adequate redress, including a lack of a sufficient victims compensation fund."

    Any sale of the Weinstein Company must ensure that employees are protected going forward, the attorney general said. A potential sale could allow top officials who were allegedly aware of the misconduct to continue occupying key positions under a newly formed entity.

    Harvey Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women, including several high-profile actresses, of sexual harassment and sexual assault. The disgraced media mogul initially apologized for his behaviour but has denied accusations of rape.

    The allegations, first reported by the New York Times in October of 2017, led to mass movements supporting women including #MeToo and Time's Up.

    Jeez should this go in the cops thread?

    Detective allegedly urged Weinstein accuser to delete material from phone

    A police detective already facing allegations that he coached a witness in Harvey Weinstein’s criminal sexual assault case was accused Wednesday of urging one of the movie mogul’s accusers to delete material from her cellphones before she handed them over to prosecutors. The Manhattan district attorney’s office detailed the alleged misconduct in a letter to Weinstein’s lawyer that was made public.

    We have been asked why a story reported and written by two Esquire writers is being published in The Atlantic. This story began with our editors at Esquire. After months of reporting, the story went through Esquire's editorial process, which included fact-checking and vetting by a Hearst attorney, and the story was approved for publication. The story was then killed by Hearst executives. We do not know why. We feel fortunate that the piece has gone through The Atlantic's thoughtful editorial process, which included another rigorous fact-check and robust legal vetting. We are most grateful that the alleged victims now have a chance to be heard and we hope the substance of their allegations remains the focus.
    CDAN takes a victory lap:

    The long awaited expose about the disgraced A-list Director has finally arrived. If you haven’t read it yet, I would recommend going through every single line. This should completely end the director’s career. It is much worse than what was written to end other big Hollywood careers. The people who have worked at this for years said they had the goods on this guy, and they delivered more than any of us could have expected. They just had to fight for a long time against very powerful and evil people to get the story out there.http://voxday.blogspot.com/2019/01/l...afia-fail.html
