The New York Attorney General's Office Is Suing The Weinstein Company

New York attorney general files lawsuit against the Weinstein company for failing to protect employees from chief

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office raised “grave concerns” if the former Weinstein Company chief operating officer David Glasser will be named the CEO of the new company

Embattled movie producer Harvey Weinstein was sued by NY officials for creating a hostile work environment at the Weinstein Co. that allegedly featured "pervasive sexual harassment", intimidation and discrimination.

The office has concerns that Glasser, who was COO under Harvey Weinstein, did nothing to protect employees from sexual abuses, a source told Variety, and would be the wrong person to lead the company.

State attorney general Eric Schneiderman said the lawsuit was filed in New York County Supreme Court and included new allegations about Weinstein's "vicious and exploitative mistreatment" of employees.

"Any sale of The Weinstein Company must ensure that victims will be compensated, employees will be protected going forward and that neither perpetrators nor enablers will be unjustly enriched".




The New York attorney general is objecting to the appointment of Weinstein Co. veteran David Glasser to be CEO of the company under new ownership.

Harvey Weinstein has been accused by almost 100 women of sexual harassment, bullying, or rape. Rather than conduct any investigation in Weinstein's alleged behavior, HR alerted the mogul to any allegations made against him, the suit says.

He goes on to allege that Harvey used his position at TWC, as well as female employees and company resources, to serve his sexual interests with other women seeking employment or business opportunities with TWC.

But when she arrived Weinstein allegedly appeared naked under a bathrobe and asked the employee for a massage.
