Is the Weinstein Company Legally Negligent for Failing to Prevent Weinstein's Abuse?


Haleyi said she took the position and had no contact with Weinstein until after the production ended.

She said she told several friends about this story.

The disgraced movie mogul pinned new accuser Mimi Haleyi down in a surprise attack at his Manhattan residence, forcibly removed her tampon and performed oral sex on her without consent, she said. "He held me down on the bed".

Among them is Mimi Haleyi, a production assistant on a Weinstein Co.

Haleyi claims that Weinsten then ripped out her tampon and began performing oral sex on her despite her pleas for him to stop.

The letter also calls out those who witness sexual harassment and do nothing, dismissing it as "locker room talk" and encouraging other women to "smile and shrug it off" because that's what's needed to get ahead. Allred declined to comment on whether they will sue, and whether they will go to the cops about this. They met again at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006 and she offered to help on his productions in NY.

But Weinstein got in touch afterward and offered her a job on one of his TV productions in NY. "I would not have wanted anyone to do that to me, even if that person had been a romantic partner". Once there, however, Weinstein went to the bathroom and returned only in a bathrobe, Huett alleges.




"We need justice for these victims", said Allred. "At the time, I personally did not have the idea to even report anything because I didn't think anyone would care", she said.

He "orally forced himself on me while I was on my period", Haleyi said. I was mortified. I was in disbelief and disgusted. She suggested this may not be within the statutes of limitation, but Haleyi's allegations could still be of interest to law enforcement investigations into Weinstein.

"According to Haleyi, he asked her, "'Don't you feel we're so much closer to each other now?' To which I replied, 'No'".

One of the signers of the letter, State Representative Sara Feigenholtz, has also filed a resolution urging those in government to work on changing the culture in Springfield that the resolution says breeds sexual harassment. "This case is really about putting the casting couch on trial". "At that time, I was crying because I felt humiliated".

Nielsen joins a swelling list of named accusers of Weinstein, now reaching towards 60.

Harvey's brother Bob Weinstein and the Board of Directors, it claims, knew of "Weinstein's propensity to engage in sexual misconduct" and of the "substantial likelihood for sexual misconduct" when Weinstein met with an aspiring actress in private.

It's not clear whether Judd will add more details of her encounter with Weinstein than what she's already shared, and ABC News did not provide any clips of the interview in advance.
