Harvey Weinstein and the members of his former film studio, would a settlement of $ 44 million to ensure the victims that a complaint for sexual harassment submitted. That reports The Wall Street Journal.
The deal – which is still not all the way around – is about a civil lawsuit against the Weinstein Company and against Weinstein himself. The producer fell from his mighty pedestal when more than seventy women testified about the abuse of power and sexual harassment. It was the beginning of the #metoo movement.
Against Weinstein himself is a criminal case, for example, because of rape. The settlement has no effect on it.
Weinstein has always denied ever having sex without permission, to have had. His lawyers plead innocent in the criminal case.
