British actress Kadian Noble accuses Harvey and Bob Weinstein of sex trafficking

Weinstein pulled Kadian into the bathroom, where he forced himself on her, the lawsuit alleges.

The company violated USA sex trafficking law by "benefiting from, and knowingly facilitating, the venture in which Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce to recruit or entice female actors into forced or coerced sexual encounters on the promise of roles", states the lawsuit.

'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 is seeking damages for her assault, though the details haven't been laid out yet.

What followed was Weinstein allegedly calling a TWC producer and after putting Noble on the line, "The TWC producer told [Noble] that she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever [Weinstein] wished, ' and if she did, then 'they would work" with her further".

They would probably give Stokes 24 hours to recover from his flight before trying to contact him, Curwin said. The all-rounder wasn't included in England's Ashes squad due to an ongoing police investigation.

The complaint then lays out its reasons for naming The Weinstein Company and Bob Weinstein as co-defendants.

Once there, the lawsuit said Harvey Weinstein "began massaging Kadian and then gripped her shoulders".

Weinstein also asked Kadian to "walk up and down the room for him" as part of an "audition", the lawsuit said.

"Upon information and belief, the code word among TWC employees 'FOH, ' meant 'Friend of Harvey, ' and referred to a young woman who had participated in sex in exchange for a role.in an upcoming project", the complaint states. "TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's", the filing claims.

According to Noble, Weinstein told her that he had a movie role in mind for her while he was on a trip to London in 2014. In a statement issued, a Directors Guild of America's spokesperson said, 'Harvey Weinstein resigned from his membership from the Directors Guild of America effective today.' They have denied to further comment on the matter.

That's when Weinstein pulled Kadian closer and "groped her breasts", the lawsuit said. "It's a way to bring back from the dead lawsuits that were simply barred by the statute of limitations".
