Unnamed actress sues Harvey Weinstein for allegedly raping her in 2016 15.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Harvey Weinstein and the movie company he co-founded, The Weinstein Company, were sued in California state court on Tuesday by an anonymous actress who said she was raped by the movie producer in the spring of 2016. The actress, who is represented by attorney Gloria Allred and identified in the documents as Jane Doe, said in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court that Weinstein invited the actress to a hotel to discuss a role in a television show, but instead forced her onto a bed, pulled off her jeans and raped her despite her telling him no. Because the Weinstein Co knew of the movie producer's misconduct toward women, it was liable for the pain he inflicted, according to the lawsuit, which is seeking undisclosed damages. Allred could not be reached to comment, but a copy of the lawsuit was posted online by Variety. A spokesperson for Weinstein said in an email to Reuters: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further ...
