NY Attorney General files civil rights lawsuit against Weinstein brothers, Weinstein Co

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Sunday filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, his brother Bob and The Weinstein Company, alleging civil and human rights violations stemming from Harvey's alleged sexual misconduct.

"As alleged in our complaint, The Weinstein Company repeatedly broke NY law by failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation, and discrimination", Attorney General Schneiderman said.

The lawsuit is part of an ongoing four-month investigation and includes interviews with multiple survivors of the alleged sexual misconduct, employees, and company executives.

Harvey Weinstein has been accused by almost 100 women of sexual harassment, bullying or rape. He denies having non-consensual sex.

Top prosecutor Eric Schneiderman launched an investigation into The Weinstein Companies in October of 2017.

The Met Police are now investigating nine different accusations from women against Weinstein. This compelled service "demeaned and humiliated them, contributing to the hostile work environment", the complaint says.

Weinstein, the disgraced movie mogul, was ousted from his role at The Weinstein Company past year after numerous reports of sexual misconduct. At one point, Schneiderman alleges that Harvey fired a male assistant for being "just a fucking faggot boy, a stupid fucking faggot boy". The suit alleges that the COO failed to protect the company's employees.

A representative for Weinstein could not be immediately reached for comment Sunday.
