Actress Accuses Harvey Weinstein Of Sex Trafficking In New Lawsuit

Harvey Weinstein  File

But that hasn't devalued Noble's lawsuit, which states that Weinstein "recruited and enticed" Kadian Noble with the "promise of a film role, knowing that he would use means of force, fraud or coercion to cause her to engage in a sex act".

She is now demanding a jury trial and unspecified damages in the suit, which also names Harvey's brother Bob and The Weinstein Company as co-defendants.

British actress Kadian Noble has filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein brothers and the company they founded, arguing that Harvey Weinstein's alleged assault of her at the Cannes Film Festival and the company's complicity in it constituted sex trafficking.

It had started with film offers and mentorship in 2014, and in February, the two met in Cannes, France, where Weinstein invited her to his room at Le Majestic Hotel to go over her reel.

Weinstein then began watching Noble's reel according to the court filing while massaging the plaintiff's shoulders. If she did, they "would work" further with her, said the suit.

The Harvey Weinstein sex scandal had created this year's loudest uproar and outrage from women worldwide and then seemingly calmed down for a bit.

In detail, Noble's complaint describes how Weinstein allegedly had her parade around in front of him for "audition purposes", groped her breasts, pulled her into the bathroom, and began "to rub [Noble's] breast and buttocks".

These rules are to be applicable to "internet access services", which are generally available to the public, said Trai . The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has finally released its recommendations on net neutrality .

As with numerous allegations by over 80 women that have been made against Weinstein since the New York Times posted its detailed expose on October 5, this case outlines a M.O. of coercion, grabbing and masturbation by the producer.

He then allegedly took Noble's hands and used it to pleasure himself until completion.

Noble's contact with Weinstein "was of tremendous significance to the future of her acting career", since Weinstein was "a gatekeeper of enormous influence in the entertainment industry, and had the power to advance her career exponentially through auditions, readings, introductions and consideration for roles, in addition to roles in [The Weinstein Company] projects", states the complaint. But now, a sex trafficking lawsuit has also been added to the mix.

The suit says Bob Weinstein and The Weinstein Company "knowingly participated in Weinstein's" trips to foreign countries for such purposes. "Mr. Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex", a rep said. "TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's", is filed in the claim as reported by Vulture.

'Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce, knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian, offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter, ' reads the complaint.

Noble's complaint calls The Weinstein Company complicit in this activity, since it either knew or "was in reckless disregard of the facts" that Weinstein recruited young female actors to visit him, sometimes via interstate or global travel, under false pretenses, promising an acting opportunity and then coercing or forcing sexual activity.
