Actress Files Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein's Company For Covering Up His Behaviour

Actress Files Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein's Company For Covering Up His Behaviour

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.

Harvey Weinstein wouldn't take no for an answer when a NY production assistant rejected his sexual advances and told him she was menstruating, she said Tuesday. On Wednesday, at least two accusers prepared to appear at press conferences, including a new accuser client to be introduced by Gloria Allred, her fourth so far.

A woman who previously worked as a production assistant for a TV show made by the Weinstein Company has become the latest to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.

She noted that, if Weinstein weren't such a prominent figure, it wouldn't have resulted in as much of a groundswell: "If it was some independent filmmaker that no one really knew much about, it would be in Variety and then gone the next day".

"If she spoke to (investigators), it would be to answer any questions they might have that might be relevant to their investigation". She filed the first lawsuit against the company on Tuesday claiming negligence for knowing about Weinstein's sexual misdeeds dating back decades and failing to do anything about it.

"Weinstein engaged in sexual misconduct with Ms. Huett by, among other things, performing oral sex on Ms. Huett and masturbating in front of her", according to the complaint.

She's also finding solace in other women. Once there, however, Weinstein went to the bathroom and returned only in a bathrobe, Huett alleges.

Mimi Haleyi is on a list of people that NY officials are seeking to speak with in the ongoing investigation into allegations against Weinstein, according to law enforcement sources.

"Harvey asked if I'd give him a massage".

"We know from reports from former employees that there were settlements the company was making and lawyers were involved and they were keeping it all confidential", Herman says.

"He kept asking about massages, and I felt the meeting was going nowhere, so I left", Haleyi said. He said that Huett's story "at a minimum" was sexual harassment.

"It was, therefore, a real shock when Harvey proceeded to put his hand on my thigh at dinner during the opening night of Great Raid, at which both my boyfriend and my brother were present", Nielsen recalled. "It's time for him to take meaningful actions".

She warned, "As long as we suspect female actors of being somehow complicit in their own victimization, as willing participants in their own humiliation, we shame the victim and enable the culture of silence that allows predators to act with impunity".

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.
