Harvey Weinstein: Another civil lawsuit makes new rape allegation

Harvey Weinstein Indicted on Rape, Criminal Sex Act Charges

Three women have filed a new class action lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, including one who alleged that Weinstein raped her after she came to his office to pitch her internet startup.

In the new complaint filed in the federal court in NY, which also aims at its former studios Miramax and The Weinstein Company, as well as several of their leaders, the producer is accused of raping in 2011, a woman who had come to NY in hopes to sell him a marketing tool.

Actress Caitlin Dulany is the second complainant in the lawsuit, with Dulany alleging that Weinstein sexually assaulted her in Cannes in 1996.

Thompson said she visited Weinstein's office in Tribeca earlier that day, to sell him on the idea of a marketing startup called Intercast Networks.

After news broke in October 2017 regarding Weinstein's pattern of assault, she was referred to Benjamin Brafman and an attorney who then worked for his firm, Alex Spiro.

The lawsuit reportedly names Weinstein, board members from his now-defunct production company and the Miramax film company as defendants.

She was referring to the indictment of Weinstein last Friday in NY for a rape in 2013 and a blowjob forced in 2004, his first charge since the first revelations of sexual abuse against the producer in October. She recoiled and Weinstein became angry.

Citing numerous media accounts, the complaint goes on to allege Weinstein's assistants and colleagues either actively participated in the luring in of the alleged victims, or helped him to cover up and in some cases actively intimidate those assaulted as part of "the Weinstein Sexual Enterprise".

The lawsuit alleges that Weinstein was supported in his sexual pursuits by film companies and dozens of workers for those companies who knew he was abusing women.

Brafman said that if Spiro ever spoke with or met with any of these women, he did it on his own time after he left the Brafman law group and joined another firm.

Gomes says she told Weinstein, "I think I should go now, my boyfriend is waiting for me, and he will be anxious", but that he forcibly tried to kiss her before she fled.

Brafman has said that Weinstein has never had nonconsensual sexual relations with anyone. "We will soon formally move to dismiss the indictment and if this case actually proceeds to trial, we expect Mr. Weinstein to be acquitted". And accuse Miramax and The Weinstein Company have "facilitated and concealed the predator behaviour of Weinstein".
