Harvey Weinstein indicted on rape charges

Harvey Weinstein was facing a new rape allegation on Friday, including claims that a woman captured video of Weinstein assaulting her, as part of a lawsuit alleging that he had help covering up his misconduct with women.

It is noted that Harvey Weinstein would require the court to find him not guilty and vehemently denies the rape charges.

Caitlin Dulany, an actress who claims Weinstein sexually assaulted her in 1996 at a Hotel du Cap hotel room, alleges that Weinstein performed oral sex on her without consent, and then masturbated.

Earlier that day, Thompson said that she went to Weinstein's Tribeca office to pitch him on a marketing startup called Intercast Networks.

Years later, Thompson says she suspects lawyers Ben Brafman - who now represents Weinstein - and Alex Spiro manipulated her into giving them audio and video evidence of Weinstein's behavior.

In addition to Weinstein, it names directors of the now-defunct Weinstein Company as defendants.

Harvey Weinstein, center, listens during a court proceeding in NY during his arraignment on rape and other charges on May 25. She alleges she was tricked into sharing evidence of her alleged assault with a lawyer named Alex Spiro and even discussed legal strategies accusers could employ against Weinstein.

The lawsuit also alleges that Weinstein's attorneys used "deceptive tactics" in October 2017, causing her to believe that they were working for the victims in order to entice her to turn over her visual and audio evidence of Weinstein's actions, which she did.

The lawsuit states that Dulany and Weinstein allegedly ran into each other again two months later at the Cannes Film Festival, where they attended a few events together.

"In addition, while at this firm, he never met with Mr Weinstein nor did he have any responsibility whatsoever in connection with our representation of Mr Weinstein in any matter".

CNN has reached out to Robert Weinstein, The Walt Disney Company, Miramax and The Weinstein Company for comment but not received any responses.

Ms Phyllis Kupferstein, a lawyer for Weinstein, said the new lawsuit lacked merit and she would move to dismiss it. Since then, more than 80 women have come forward with allegations of Weinstein's sexual impropriety, according to Vox. The second time Larissa met with him, Weinstein imprisoned her in his hotel room and threatened, battered and assaulted her, causing her physical and emotional distress and injury to her property and livelihood.

Brafman, Weinstein´s lawyer, is one of America´s most celebrated criminal defense attorneys.

Brafman has said that Weinstein has never had nonconsensual sexual relations with anyone.
