New York Attorney General Schneiderman sues Harvey Weinstein

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein and his former company, citing "egregious" violations of state civil and human rights laws.

In the lawsuit, Eric Schneiderman says any future sale of The Weinstein Company must ensure that victims are compensated, future employees are protected, and that neither Harvey nor Bob Weinstein benefits from the sale. The attorney general's probe remains ongoing, he said in a news release.

Mr Weinstein has been accused by several women, including actresses Selma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Lupita Nyong'o, of sexual harassment. Movie mogul Harvey Weinisten left his company amid allegations of sexual misconduct - which he has denied.

Allegations first surfaced in October after an investigative report by the New York Times.

It accuses the company's board and executives of repeatedly failing to take adequate steps to protect staff or curb Weinstein's behavior, despite multiple complaints. "This compelled service demeaned and humiliated them, contributing to the hostile work environment".

One employee told the company HR department that "only female executives are put in these positions with actresses with whom Weinstein has a 'personal friendship, ' which to my understanding means he has either had or wants to have sexual relations with them". These female employees were supposed to help his company produce films and television projects.

Schneiderman's office and reps for the Contreras-Sweet group and TWC did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
