Harvey Weinstein Is Now Being Sued For Sex Trafficking

A spokesperson for Weinstein told the Guardian the Jewish producer denies any allegations of nonconsensual sex.

Harvey Weinstein's god-like status in Hollywood prevented an aspiring British actress coming forward sooner with a claim of sexual assault, she has said after filing a lawsuit against him under sex trafficking laws.

As per the lawsuit, once inside the room, Weinstein allegedly "began massaging [Noble] and then gripped her shoulders".

"Kadian has suffered severe injuries and emotional distress, pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, inability to lead a normal life, shame and humiliation", lawyer Stuart Mermelstein writes.

If she did that, Noble claims she was told "they would work" together in the future.

Kadian says Weinstein pounced on her when she met him at a hotel during the Cannes Film Festival in February 2014.

Bob Weinstein is a part of this action because he is alleged to have "facilitated commercial sex acts in foreign commerce" by his brother, the complaint alleges, "to obtain the enormous publicity" when the producer promoted the company's projects around the world.

The operation was commenced on court orders following the expiry of the midnight deadline set by the district administration. The lawmaker from NA-133 (Sheikhupura) was in the Batti Chowk area to negotiate with the protesters, Express News reported.

Noble also was made to get on the phone with a person she was told was an executive she claims, with that man instructing her to be 'a good girl and do whatever he wished'. She is also suing Bob Weinstein - Harvey's brother - and the Weinstein Company for allowing Harvey Weinstein to continue with his alleged assaults for years even after others raised concerns with his behavior over the years.

Using language common among cops and anti-trafficking activists, the suit accuses Weinstein of "grooming" Noble before trafficking her.

"The Weinstein company's board has maintained they were completely unaware of Harvey's crimes, claiming to be blindsided by the plethora of sexual misconduct allegations".

'TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's'.

'Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce, knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian, offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter, ' reads the complaint.

The filmmaker has been involved in more than 300 movies spanning six decades but has just two directing credits, for the animated 1987 film "The Gnomes' Great Adventure" and 1986 comedy "Playing for Keeps".

Noble's complaint calls The Weinstein Company complicit in this activity, since it either knew or "was in reckless disregard of the facts" that Weinstein recruited young female actors to visit him, sometimes via interstate or worldwide travel, under false pretenses, promising an acting opportunity and then coercing or forcing sexual activity. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".
