Several women who sued former film executive Harvey Weinstein recently agreed to a settlement of $19 million. Variety reports:
“The payments, which still await approval by the bankruptcy and district courts, will resolve two separate lawsuits — one against Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and The Weinstein Company, which was filed in Feb. 2018 by the office of the Attorney General, and a separate Nov. 2017 class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of the group of women who were sexually harassed and assaulted by the former movie mogul.”
Weinstein has been in prison for three months after being found guilty of raping actress Jessica Mann. Weinstein is set to serve 23 years in prison.
