Harvey Weinstein: First UK civil claim made against film producer

Harvey Weinstein: First UK civil claim made against film producer

This particular case has been filed under the federal sex trafficking law.

But that was until Kadian Noble, an aspiring British actress, chose to sue both Harvey and his brother Bob, and the Weinstein Company under federal sex trafficking laws, in order to bring the movie mogul to the justice that his actions over the years, has deserved.

Noble has proceeded to claim that Bob and TWC were equally responsible and had full idea of Harvey's behaviour and intentions with her.

Weinstein then pulled down Noble's shirt and forced his leg between her legs, and rubbed her genitals and began masturbating, the suit said.

The actress is now suing The Weinstein Co. for damages from the assault, with Noble alleging that Weinstein told her, "Everything will be taken care of for you if you relax", after attempting to fight back against the mogul. Attorneys interviewed by Reuters called the lawsuit's application "innovative" and said they would be watching closely, but expressed mixed views about whether the approach would work in federal court. "It seemed like it went on forever and he basically took, just completely touched me inappropriately and got me to put - force my hand in places", she recalled. She said it didn't stop there. "A person filing a civil case is always happy with a criminal conviction, because he or she can try to use that conviction as evidence of liability in a civil case". She claims that he pulled down her shirt, undid his trousers and pulled out his penis.

That's when Weinstein pulled Kadian closer and "groped her breasts", the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit also claims that Bob Weinstein helped Harvey do what he did by either knowing about or completely ignoring Harvey's habit of traveling to other countries "to entice or recruit or solicit young female actors with the promise of roles in upcoming TWC projects ... knowing that he would then use fraud, force or coercion to engage in sex acts with these actors".

However, at the same time, Noble felt compelled to comply with Harvey Weinstein's demands because of the tangible and intangible benefits he offered to advance her career, according to the suit. "Multiple TWC employees participated in the recruitment or enticement of Kadian into a victim of a commercial sex act", the suit states. The statute of limitations is ten years.

The lawsuit was filed this week and because of the additional element of sex trafficking - with Weinstein crossing worldwide borders with Noble - the statute of limitations is increased to 10 years.

Meanwhile, activists said the report did not mention a timeframe for implementing the recommendations. The regulator will come out with a consultation paper on over-the-top (OTT) players soon.
