Harvey Weinstein: First UK civil claim made against film producer

Disgraced Weinstein hit by new sex attack lawsuit

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

The lawsuit also claims that Bob Weinstein helped Harvey do what he did by either knowing about or completely ignoring Harvey's habit of traveling to other countries "to entice or recruit or solicit young female actors with the promise of roles in upcoming TWC projects ... knowing that he would then use fraud, force or coercion to engage in sex acts with these actors". Many Hollywood A-list actresses, including, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, Cara Delevingne, Mira Sorvino, and Lupita Nyong'o are among the women to accuse the producer of harassment or assault.

She waived her right to anonymity to launch the first action seeking damages for a "series of sexual assaults".

Now 31-year-old Kadian Noble has filed a suit claiming that she met Harvey Weinstein at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, before he invited her to Le Majestic Hotel to discuss her future.

The HTC U Ultra and the company's flagship smartphone from a year ago , the HTC 10 , will also receive the Oreo update. There is also Android security update for November 2017 to fix some of the major existing vulnerabilities and bugs.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in NY, does not accuse Weinstein of labor trafficking or other exploitations commonly associated with the commercial sex industry.

After meeting one of Weinstein's executive assistants in the capital, she claims she was asked to meet the movie mogul in a hotel in Cannes in February 2014.

Jill Greenfield, partner, and head of Fieldfisher's serious injury sector, said that she had been instructed by her client less than a month ago and had to act swiftly to protect her client's ability to bring a claim so many years after the assault.

On her Web site, per Deadline, Greenfield compared this suit to several unfolding USA investigations of Weinstein.

CNN had a savage clapback to Donald Trump's tweet attack
Trump did not specify how the contest would be carried out or who or what would determine the victor of the trophy. CNN's communications team responded to Trump by tweeting, "It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S.to the world".

However, at the same time, Noble felt compelled to comply with Harvey Weinstein's demands because of the tangible and intangible benefits he offered to advance her career, according to the suit.

"Harvey Weinstein actively had no intention of following through with his promise of a role., " the lawsuit said.

She alleges Weinstein told her they could work together if she was "a good girl" and did "whatever he wished". "Harvey Weinstein ultimately forced Kadian into sexual acts".

Weinstein spokesperson is still keen on claiming that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

Istanbul holds rally saying "no" to violence against women
Nearly half of the women who were killed in 2012 were killed by either partners or family members, compared to 6% of men. The men say the woman consented to the sexual encounter but have admitted to stealing her mobile phone.

Jeffrey Herman, Noble's attorney, filed the lawsuit under both criminal and civil statutes, which Stanley L. Friedman, former prosecutor, believes is a "creative" strategy.
