Harvey Weinstein: First UK civil claim made against film producer

Harvey Weinstein: First UK civil claim made against film producer

Sexual assault claims must be filed within five to 10 years from the date of the incident, which is why many of Weinstein's alleged victims have very little legal options; however, the statue of limitations for sex trafficking is 10 years, so it's very possible more women will follow Noble's lead and file similar lawsuits to get justice.

"Harvey Weinstein was able to force or coerce Kadian into sexual activity in his hotel room because of his promise to her of a film role and use of his influence on her behalf", the unspecified damages seeking 11-page complaint that names Weinstein, along with his brother Bob Weinstein and the struggling Weinstein Company states (read it here).

The Harvey Weinstein sex scandal had created this year's loudest uproar and outrage from women worldwide and then seemingly calmed down for a bit.

A representative for Harvey Weinstein said in a statement, "Mr. Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex". "Harvey Weinstein ultimately forced Kadian into sexual acts". "In an apparent attempt to entice KADIAN into sex with Harvey Weinstein, an unnamed TWC producer told Kadian that she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever [he] wished", and if she did, then 'they will work with [her] further'".

The downfall of Harvey Weinstein continues.

I honestly didn't think there were any kinds of sexual misconduct left to accuse Harvey Weinstein of.

Noble's lawsuit claimed Weinstein promised her a role in a Weinstein Company project and that he invited her to his hotel room in February 2014 in France on the premise of viewing her show reel, or video highlights of her acting. Noble is not only suing Weinstein; she's going after him as an alleged sex trafficker.

According to Noble's lawsuit, it was "common practice" of Weinstein and "well-known" to his brother Bob Weinstein that Harvey Weinstein would travel overseas and to different states to recruit, solicit and entice young female actresses with promises of film roles only to then use force, fraud or coercion to engage them in sex. He held her down with one hand and used the other to place her hand on his genitals and force her to masturbate him to completion. The lawsuit claims employees "knew to "take care" of the FOH's".

Neither a representative for Bob Weinstein nor The Weinstein Company immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment. "Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".
