Harvey Weinstein hit with sex trafficking claims, expelled from DGA

London civil claim lodged against Weinstein

The charges of sex trafficking have been filed by the legal council for actress Kadian Noble alleging that, "Harvey Weinstein was able to force or coerce Kadian into sexual activity in his hotel room because of his promise to her of a film role and use of his influence on her behalf, despite having no intention of following through on those promises".

British actor Kadian Noble, 31, has launched a suit in the United States alleging that the producer assaulted her at the Cannes film festival in 2004, after grooming her in London, under claims he was looking to cast her in a film.

As per the lawsuit, once inside the room, Weinstein allegedly "began massaging [Noble] and then gripped her shoulders".

Another actress added her name Monday to the dozens accusing movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of a litany of depraved sexual misconduct as he was forced to quit Hollywood's directing union.

The claim is listed as damages for personal injury, expenses, consequential loss including aggravated and exemplary damages and interest arising out of a series of sexual assaults inflicted on the claimant by the defendant.

After the phone call, Noble was allegedly "pulled closer and [Harvey] groped her breasts".

"It seemed like it went on forever", Noble said.

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. In October, the DGA had held a board meeting to discuss the decades of sexual harassment and assault allegations facing Weinstein.

Bob Weinstein and TWC did not respond to request for comment on the complaint.

'Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce, knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian, offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter, ' reads the complaint. Employees even had code words communicating what they expected to occur, the lawsuit states.

Kadian Noble, 31, also told a press conference on Tuesday how she felt further pressured into silence after describing Weinstein's alleged offending to an executive assistant in London. "TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's", the filing claims.

Bob meanwhile is said to have "been privy to multiple claims in which such acts and conduct were alleged against Harvey Weinstein, prior to February, 2014" in the complaint.

Noble's complaint calls The Weinstein Company complicit in this activity, since it either knew or "was in reckless disregard of the facts" that Weinstein recruited young female actors to visit him, sometimes via interstate or global travel, under false pretenses, promising an acting opportunity and then coercing or forcing sexual activity.
