Weinstein Now Embroiled in NY Civil Rights Investigation
New York Attorney General has launched a civil rights investigation into The Weinstein Co. following sexual assault allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the probe Monday. His office says it issued a subpoena seeking all company records
The Democratic attorney general says his office wants to know whether any New York employees were subjected to pervasive harassment or discrimination at the company, which has an office in New York.
Harvey Weinstein was fired on 8 October by the company he co-founded after allegations of sexual assault and harassment spanning decades were exposed by The New York Times and The New Yorker.
More than 40 women have publicly accused the entertainment mogul of abuse. Harvey Weinstein has denied allegations of non-consensual sex.
