New York Opens Civil Rights Probe into Weinstein Company

HeadlineOct 24, 2017

New York’s attorney general has opened a civil rights probe into the Weinstein Company, after dozens of women came forward alleging rape and other sexual crimes by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Eric Schneiderman has subpoenaed company records relating to sexual harassment and gender discrimination complaints, investigating whether the company broke state civil rights law or New York City human rights law. The probe comes after a former assistant to company co-founder Bob Weinstein said she warned her boss 25 years ago about sexual misconduct of his brother, Harvey Weinstein. Bob Weinstein faces his own charges of sexual misconduct, after producer Amanda Segel told Variety magazine he made unwanted romantic overtures toward her while asking “highly intimate questions” during a production in June of 2016.
