State AG asks court to intervene in sale of Weinstein company

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office raised “grave concerns” if the former Weinstein Company chief operating officer David Glasser will be named the CEO of the new company

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said on Sunday he had filed a civil suit against The Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein, and Bob Weinstein, alleging the company's executives and board failed to protect employees from movie producer and former CEO Harvey Weinstein.

Harvey Weinstein, pictured at the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on May 23, 2017 in Cap d'Antibes, France, was attacked at a restaurant.

In court papers filed in Manhattan on Sunday, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (SHNEYE'-dur-muhn) says the Weinstein Co.

United manager Jose Mourinho responded immediately by sending on Michael Carrick and Juan Mata for Pogba and Jesse Lingard. A huge chance fell the way of the Frenchman in the 35th minute when he was played through on goal by Nemanja Matic .

The lawsuit alleges that the company broke NY law and violated the company's employees' rights by "failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation, and discrimination", Schneiderman said in a statement.

The lawsuit follows a four-month investigation by New York's attorney general.

The lawsuit alleges that Weinstein sexually harassed employees and abused women for years. Weinstein's drivers in both New York City and Los Angeles were required to keep condoms and erectile dysfunction injections in the auto at all times, according to the NY attorney general's complaint.

LL Bean's Lifetime Return Policy Is No More
Gorman said customers were seeking refunds for products that have been purchased through third parties, such as at yard sales. But even in the face of getting ripped off by its own customers, there was something sort of. wonderful. about the policy.

The suit says that the investigation shows that the head of human resources at Weinstein's company was not empowered to do anything about his ongoing sexual harassment of female employees.

In one example, an assistant wrote an email complaint to human resources regarding Weinstein's behavior only to find it forwarded directly to him via email minutes later, according to the suit. "Weinstein's contract outlined that if he violated TWC's "Code of Conduct", he would face escalating financial penalties: "$250,000 for the first instance, "$500,000, for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each such additional instance".
