The United States has filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein Company for failing to protect its staffs from Harvey Weinstein, who is facing charges including sexual harassment and rape charges.
According to the reports, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is the person who has failed the aforementioned lawsuit against the media conglomerate.
It is said that not only the company, but also Mr Weinstein and his brother, Robert, who is the co-founder of the tainted company, are mentioned in the lawsuit filed by the New York Attorney General.
If the court finds that there is merit in the lawsuit filed by the AG, the company will be ordered to give a huge sum as damages and penalties.
It was alleged that Mr Weinstein sexually abused and harassed several lady staffs employed by the studio which functions under the company. Moreover, it was also alleged that the company authorities kept a blind eye on severe serious allegations such as sexual abuse allegations raised against Mr Weinstein.
Anyway, all these allegations were denounced by Mr Weinstein, who still stands firmly in his statement that he never indulged in any kinds of non-consensual sexual activities with his staffs.
However, the Weinstein Company’s representatives have not publically responded about the law suit filed against the company.
Many people, who are of the opinion that the sexual abuse culture should be eliminated, have welcomed the move taken by the US authorities.
