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

The state of NY filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, his brother and their eponymous production company Sunday for "egregious violations" of civil rights, human rights and business laws.

Schneiderman said Sunday that a four-month investigation into sexual harassment found "vicious and exploitative mistreatment of company employees".

Harvey Weinstein has been accused by almost 100 women of sexual harassment, bullying or rape.

"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", state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in court papers. And Schneiderman notes that a sale could mean a windfall for those responsible for any misconduct.

The NYPD is also investigating rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein. The disgraced movie mogul has been accused by almost 100 women of sexual harassment, bullying or rape.

He allegedly boasted he had connections with the Secret Service that could take care of his problems.

The lawsuit could block the sale of the company. It targets Harvey Weinstein for allegations of sexual misconduct.

"Female Weinstein employees are essentially used to facilitate his sexual conquests of vulnerable women who hope he will get them work", one female executive said, according to the suit. The suit references the Weinstein Company's COO, but does not use Glasser's name.

Telephone and email messages seeking comment from Weinstein and the company were not immediately returned.
