NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James, as part of a class action lawsuit, has helped to secure approximately $19 million for women who experienced sexual misconduct and workplace harassment by convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein. The payments, if approved by the bankruptcy and district courts, resolve the Office of the Attorney General’s (OAG) February 2018 lawsuit against The Weinstein Company LLC, Harvey Weinstein, and Robert Weinstein, for maintaining a hostile work environment at the company, as well as a separately-filed putative class action lawsuit brought on behalf of women who were sexually harassed and assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.
