Harvey Weinstein scandal: New accuser set to come forward Wednesday

She filed the first lawsuit against the company on Tuesday claiming negligence for knowing about Weinstein's sexual misdeeds dating back decades and failing to do anything about it. "He held me down on the bed".

In a statement, a representative from Weinstein has said: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein".

She noted that, if Weinstein weren't such a prominent figure, it wouldn't have resulted in as much of a groundswell: "If it was some independent filmmaker that no one really knew much about, it would be in Variety and then gone the next day".

The letter also calls out those who witness sexual harassment and do nothing, dismissing it as "locker room talk" and encouraging other women to "smile and shrug it off" because that's what's needed to get ahead. When he suggested they go to his room, she thought the meeting would continue.

Her story is strikingly similar to those of more than 50 women who have claimed they were sexually harassed or assaulted by the disgraced film producer.

Weinstein "was a complete gentleman" during that follow-up meeting, she recalled.

Haleyi finally told Weinstein she wasn't interested in him romantically and that she had heard about his "terrible reputation with women". Once there, however, Weinstein went to the bathroom and returned only in a bathrobe, Huett alleges. "It is time for him to take meaningful action to demonstrate in deeds, not just words, that he is taking responsibility for what he has done and that he is willing to make amends to the victims", she said Tuesday.

Hamas Agreed Not to Carry out Terror, Rocket Attacks Against Israel
Islamist movement Hamas is blacklisted as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union. Also as part of the agreement, the Palestinian Authority can not take any new steps regarding Israel.

"I would not have wanted anyone to do that to me, even if that person had been a romantic partner", said Haleyi. I was mortified. I was in disbelief and disgusted. "I tried to get him off me and kept asking him to stop, but it was impossible".

Haleyi had not reported her allegations to NYPD as of Tuesday afternoon, Allred told the New York Daily News.

The new movie, they say, will illuminate the "behavior of predatory perpetrators such as Harvey Weinstein and others", and the culture that "enables and protects them". "By that time, I was crying, as I felt completely humiliated and stupid for having been excited about meeting with him".

Nielsen joins a swelling list of named accusers of Weinstein, now reaching towards 60.

The New York attorney general has opened a civil rights investigation into the Weinstein Company, which fired Weinstein shortly after the first accusations of sexual misconduct became public.

It's not clear whether Judd will add more details of her encounter with Weinstein than what she's already shared, and ABC News did not provide any clips of the interview in advance.
