Weinstein faces first claim for assault damages in UK

Harvey Weinstein's latest accuser just held a news conference in which she described the alleged sexual attack in a hotel room.

Kadian says Weinstein pounced on her when she met him at a hotel during the Cannes Film Festival in February 2014.

Once there, she alleges that Weinstein started massaging her and then groped her breasts and buttocks.

Personal injury lawyer Jill Greenfield says her client, who hasn't been identified, is seeking damages for "personal injury" plus expenses and "consequential loss" arising out of a series of sexual assaults by Weinstein. The TWC producer told [Noble] that she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever he wished", and if she did, then "they would work" with her further.

In this case, Weinstein is accused of using a fraudulent employment opportunity to lure Noble to his hotel room for what he hoped would be quid-pro-quo sex and what turned into a sexual assault.

After that, Noble claims she was allowed to leave and told by Weinstein that his people would be in touch with her about the role.

Using language common among cops and anti-trafficking activists, the suit accuses Weinstein of "grooming" Noble before trafficking her.

"Essentially under the statute, if a USA citizen goes to another country and uses force to entice a person to engage in a commercial sex act, they violate this law", Herman said.

The Weinstein Company did not reply to a request for comment from HuffPost.

"The Weinstein company's board has maintained they were completely unaware of Harvey's crimes, claiming to be blindsided by the plethora of sexual misconduct allegations".

The suit argues that based on these events, Weinstein was in violation of sex trafficking laws.

The company violated USA sex trafficking law by "benefiting from, and knowingly facilitating, the venture in which Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce to recruit or entice female actors into forced or coerced sexual encounters on the promise of roles", states the lawsuit.

'Upon information and belief, the code word among TWC employees "FOH", meant "Friend of Harvey", and referred to a young woman who had participated in sex in exchange for a role or position in an upcoming project, ' states the court filing.

With allegations by over 80 women being brought up against the disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein since The New York Times made a detailed exposé of sexual harassment and misconduct by Weinstein on 5 October, he has been under investigation by multiple agencies including NYPD, LAPD, the Beverley Hills Police, and the United Kingdom police for sexual assault in their respective jurisdiction.

'TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's'.

Harvey Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women of sexual abuse, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Mira Sorvino. "Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".
