Harvey Weinstein

Harvey Weinstein is an American former film producer and convicted sex offender.

After leaving Miramax, Weinstein and his brother Bob founded The Weinstein Company, a mini-major film studio. He was co-chairman, alongside Bob, from 2005 to 2017.

In October 2017, following sexual abuse allegations dating back to the late 1970s, Weinstein was dismissed from his company and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

More than 80 women made allegations of sexual harassment and/or rape against Weinstein by October 31.

On July 20, 2021, he was extradited to Los Angeles to face further charges at a subsequent trial.

In New York, Weinstein is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old Polish model and harassing and abusing her for years, beginning in 2002.

The complaint is an update to a class action lawsuit brought against Weinstein, the Weinstein Company, and Miramax by Jane Doe, as she is referred to in court records.
