- A lawyer for disgraced Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein says he believes a “fair investigation” by New York’s attorney general will show that many of the allegations against Weinstein are “without merit.”
- State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit in Manhattan on Sunday against Weinstein and the Weinstein Co. following an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.
- Schneiderman also says that any sale of the company “must ensure that victims will be compensated” and that employees will be protected.
- In a statement Sunday night, Weinstein’s attorney, Ben Brafman, says that while Weinstein “was not without fault, there certainly was no criminality.”
