Actress Natassia Malthe says Harvey Weinstein raped her in 2008

Mimi Haleyi said she was assaulted by Weinstein in 2006 when she was in her 20s in what appeared to be a child's bedroom in his New York City apartment.

Huett and her New York-based lawyer, Jeff Herman, plan to discuss the lawsuit's assertions that the company "condoned and enabled Weinstein's sexual misconduct with young women", how it was aware of nondisclosure agreements and confidential settlements with accusers intending to hide said misconduct, and how its directors and employees knew that Weinstein was continuing to target "unsuspecting young women" for years.

When Weinstein reached out at a later date, he said he received excellent feedback about her and wanted to meet again, she agreed to a meeting at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo, she said.

She was joined by attorney Gloria Allred, who spoke briefly at the beginning before letting Mimi read from a prepared statement.

Haleyi said she first met Weinstein in 2004 at the London premiere of "The Aviator".

Among the dozens - including Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Judd - who have claimed Weinstein sexually harassed them, several women have said Weinstein raped them.

Haleyi said she took the position and had no contact with Weinstein until after the production ended. She tried to deter him by telling him she was menstruating, but he persisted, she said.

"It was an imbalance of power, she said no, she was coerced, and it was unwanted sexual touching", he said.

Allred is representing three accusers who have gone public with accusations against the co-founder of Miramax and The Weinstein Co. Allred declined to comment on whether they will sue, and whether they will go to the cops about this.

Weinstein "was a complete gentleman" during that follow-up meeting, she recalled.

"We know from reports from former employees that there were settlements the company was making and lawyers were involved and they were keeping it all confidential", Herman says.

"I told him no, no, no but he insisted", she said, describing the sexual assault while seated beside Allred at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel on Madison Avenue. She suggested this may not be within the statutes of limitation, but Haleyi's allegations could still be of interest to law enforcement investigations into Weinstein. "I steered clear of him as soon as I could for the rest of the evening but soon forgot about it, until the New York Times and New Yorker pieces set off a landslide".

Actresses Rose McGowan, Asia Argento and Lucia Evans say Weinstein forced sex acts on them without consent.

More than 40 women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate behavior, ranging from sexual harassment to rape, since The New York Times first published an article exposing decades of Weinstein's alleged misdeeds.
