Weinstein Probe Goes On Despite NY's AG Scandal, Resignation

Weinstein Probe Goes On Despite NY's AG Scandal, Resignation

Wednesday, 09 May 2018 12:25 PM

A New York State lawsuit filed against Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company will not be sidelined because of the sudden resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, it was revealed on Wednesday.

"Our office has never been stronger, and this extraordinarily talented, dedicated, and tireless team of public servants will ensure that our work continues without interruption," acting New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood said in a statement to TheWrap.

Schneiderman was the chief architect of a civil rights lawsuit filed in February and charging Weinstein with "egregious violations of New York’s civil rights, human rights, and business laws." The lawsuit followed reports of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

But the attorney general became trapped in his own alleged abuse scandal this week when The New Yorker reported that four women, two who agreed to be named, said that Schneiderman had repeatedly hit them. He denied the charges but resigned hours after the article by Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow was published.

The Weinstein lawsuit pushes for restitution for those claiming the movie mogul abused them and aims to stop a sale of The Weinstein Company that didn’t include a compensation fund or remove executives accused of harassment, The Wrap reports.
