Harvey Weinstein Caught on Camera Groping Shocked Accuser

Harvey Weinstein Indicted on Rape, Criminal Sex Act Charges

Thompson said that during a 2011 meeting in his New York City office to pitch Weinstein on a new technology to market films he sexually assaulted her, twice reaching under her dress to caress her leg and pinning her to a refrigerator in the office's kitchen. The lawsuit accuses Weinstein of running offices at the movie companies he controlled - Miramax and then the Weinstein Company - and hotel rooms like a "casting couch", and says this was "a choice facilitated and condoned by Miramax, the Weinstein Company and its board of directors".

And, as it was mentioned at the beginning of the article, other women were named in the suit, including Caitlyn Dulany, who claims Harvey assaulted, battered, threatened, and held her in his hotel room during the Cannes Film Festival in 1996.

The woman accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape was horrified when the producer groped her during their business meeting, and we have obtained an exclusive image from the encounter.

The third woman said Weinstein tried to forcibly kiss her in his hotel room, claims similar to those shared by numerous dozens of women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.

"Melissa did not learn that Brafman was actually then or would later be Weinstein's lead criminal defence attorney until after turning over the video as evidence".

"Deceptive tactics were used to entice her to turn over her visual and audio evidence of Weinstein's conduct (which she did)", it said.

The attorney of the women is hoping to make the lawsuit a class-action suit to represent the other women who have accused Harvey of similar crimes.

Other women who were victimised by Weinstein were invited to join the suit. "Stand up and say something - because now is the time that enough is enough".

The 66-year-old Weinstein was charged with rape and a sex crime in NY last week, almost eight months after his career imploded in a blaze of accusations of misconduct. A few, including Asia Argento and Rose McGowan, said they were raped.

Weinstein's lawyer Benjamin Brafman, who said the jury's indictment this week "does not add anything to the case we did not already know", has yet to publicly react to the new lawsuit. His past clients include former International Monetary Fund boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who escaped criminal prosecution for alleged sexual assault in 2011.
