Harvey Weinstein accused of sex trafficking by British actress Kadian Noble

Harvey Weinstein

Kadian Noble filed a lawsuit with the NY federal court on Monday accusing Weinstein of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room in France. This referred to a woman who had sex with Harvey in exchange for a role or job in a project.

"The federal trafficking sex trafficking lawsuit is a very promising and novel legal theory because, at the end of the day, it may be a way to get around a statute of limitations that now might bar a lot of lawsuits against Weinstein", criminal defense attorney Manny Medrano told BuzzFeed News.

A woman, who worked in the film industry and wishes to remain anonymous, is alleging a series of sexual assaults by the film producer.

Harvey Weinstein was slapped with a civil lawsuit Monday charging him with sex trafficking tied to an alleged assault in Cannes, France. She told him to stop but he forced his leg between her legs and began to rub her vagina. According to the complaint, one producer told Kadian on the phone while she was in a hotel with Weinstein that she needed to be a "good girl and do whatever" Weinstein wanted for future work.

And of course, there were those infamous "religion-free" holiday cards - featuring the family dogs without the word " Christmas ". In the White House's East Wing, visitors can enjoy a Gold Star Family Tree, which honors those who have served in the military.

The lawsuit then alleges Weinstein trapped her in the bathroom and forced her to perform a hand job on him until he ejaculated on the floor.

It had started with film offers and mentorship in 2014, and in February, the two met in Cannes, France, where Weinstein invited her to his room at Le Majestic Hotel to go over her reel. The actress thought they were going to discuss a role for her.

The company violated US 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, the complaint adds".

'TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's'.

As for Ingram, she is suing Massage Envy and taking other steps to make sure spa companies do the right thing. In 2014, two other women said they too were sexually assaulted by different therapists at the same location.

As well as denying allegations of non-consensual sex, Weinstein has said - in a statement issued on his behalf - that "there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".

Kadian also is suing Weinstein's brother, Bob, and their company The Weinstein Company, claiming that they were aware that Harvey had a reputation for forcing or coercing "aspiring young actresses" to engage in sexual activity.

Bob Weinstein and TWC did not respond to request for comment on the complaint.
