Lawyer fights for Harvey Weinstein, in court and out

Harvey Weinstein Indicted on Rape, Criminal Sex Act Charges

Harvey Weinstein Indicted On Multiple Rape And Sex Crime Charges By Grand Jury

Weinstein, 66, was charged last Friday with two counts of rape and one of a criminal sexual act after alleged incidents involving two women.

The grand jury indictment spares the prosecution the step of having to go before a judge to demonstrate there is enough evidence to bring Weinstein to trial. Spiro alleges that he "never met with Mr. Weinstein nor did he have any responsibility whatsoever in connection with our representation of Mr. Weinstein in any matter".

The lawyers of Weinstein, Ben Brafman and Alex Spiro, were then made to believe to that woman, identified as Melissa Thompson, they were working for the account of the victims of Weinstein, according to the complaint.

"I never have and I never would represent Harvey Weinstein", Spiro continued.

The lawsuit states that Dulany and Weinstein allegedly ran into each other again two months later at the Cannes Film Festival, where they attended a few events together.

Gomes says she told Weinstein, "I think I should go now, my boyfriend is waiting for me, and he will be anxious", but that he forcibly tried to kiss her before she fled.

She refused and was never told why they wanted her to say this, but she assumed it had to do with the accident. He said alcohol does not appear to be a factor and it does not seem at this point that she knew the victim.

Weinstein denies any allegations of non-consensual sex.

According to the report from The Associated Press, Weinstein met up with her in 2011 for business purposes and, through his overwhelming size and physical strength, he pinned her down and raped her.

Justice continues to close in on Harvey Weinstein, ever since he surrendered himself to the NY police on May 25 (before being released on bail). That time, Dulany says, she was able to fend him off. He groomed Caitlin, earning her trust as a mentor before, later that same year, assaulting, threatening and falsely imprisoning her in her apartment.

Their lawsuit is seeking class-action status, which will allow it to represent what it claims is "hundreds of women" who have been victimised by Weinstein.

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".

The lawsuit asserts that the accusers were lured by Miramax or TWC employees and isolated with Weinstein in his office and hotel rooms to discuss their involvement in film projects. Brafman is an attorney for Weinstein. Weinstein has denied ever engaging in nonconsensual sex, and a Weinstein lawyer said Friday he would move to dismiss the new suit.
