New Lawsuit Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Sexually Assaulting a 16-Year-Old

New Lawsuit Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Sexually Assaulting a 16-Year-Old

The new accuser claims that Weinstein lured her to his NY flat in 2002 and made unwanted sexual advances.

"Like so many other women in this case who have already been exposed as liars, this latest completely uncorroborated allegation that is nearly 20 years old will also be shown to be patently false", he said.

Of the almost 100 women who have come forward, she is the youngest publicly known alleged victim.

One alleged incident in 2008 found Weinstein enacting a M.O. we have heard time and time again since the October 2017 New York Times exposé on the producer's supposed decades of such behavior.

Weinstein's lawyer Ben Brafman said: "This claim is preposterous".

"Jane Doe was a virgin, and had no intention or understanding when she agreed to a business lunch that she would be put in this alarming position".

The complaint serves as an update to a class action lawsuit that was dismissed in mid-September for lack of details - accusing Weinstein, his brother Bob and board members at TWC of racketeering.

Weinstein's civil lawyer Elior Shiloh has not commented on the latest lawsuit and Mr Eisner has not publicly responded to his inclusion in it. Reportedly, he became enraged when the teenage model objected to his advances, at first refusing to let her go, but eventually, he relented. She is part of a group of ten women who have sued saying they were abused.

In another encounter described in the filing, Weinstein blurted out his sexual attraction to Christina Aguilera, who was being shown on a television, and then allegedly unzipped his trousers and touched his penis.

Jane Doe also said that Weinstein continued to demand sex from her and that he "ensured she never received work", leaving the woman depressed and exacerbating her anorexia.

Mr Weinstein also faces criminal rape charges which could see him spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted. "Jane Doe first froze, and then fled the office", the filing said.

That case was recently roiled by back-to-back allegations that a New York City police detective acted improperly.

Days later, prosecutors revealed that DiGaudio allegedly urged the 2013 rape accuser to delete material from her cellphones before she handed them over to prosecutors.

"I came of age in the '60s and '70s, when all the rules about behaviour and workplaces were different", the 66-year-old said in a weird statement in October that apologised for and yet appeared to justify his behaviour.

The amended civil complaint containing Jane Doe's allegations was filed on the last day for lawyers to revise the lawsuit.

"Now they will answer for it", she said.
