While the lawsuits against Harvey Weinstein have not been in the forefront of the news, recently, a mass settlement was being brokered. This massive $45 million settlement was slated to fix all prior allegations against Mr. Weinstein and his subsidiaries. A new allegation has just come to light, however, and could break down all of the negotiations.
A former teen model from Poland claims that at 16 years old, Harvey Weinstein took advantage of his situation and sexually assaulted her. The now 33 year old clinical psychiatrist is refusing to join in the group settlement, claiming that it isn’t enough. This is the first case against Harvey Weinstein involving a minor.
