Harvey Weinstein Accused of Sex Trafficking in New Lawsuit

According to the suit, which was obtained by Buzzfeed News, Noble alleges the disgraced film producer lured her to the French Rivera in 2014 with "the promise of a film role".

She waived her right to anonymity to launch the first action seeking damages for a "series of sexual assaults". She is also suing the Weinstein Co. and brother Bob, claiming that they were aware of his behaviour, contributing to his foreign travel to recruit women into "forced or coerced sexual encounters".

At a press conference today in New York, Noble addressed Harvey Weinstein directly: "You completely misused the gift that you have to create magic in this world to absolutely take advantage of people".

Sexual assault claims must be filed within five to 10 years from the date of the incident, which is why many of Weinstein's alleged victims have very little legal options; however, the statue of limitations for sex trafficking is 10 years, so it's very possible more women will follow Noble's lead and file similar lawsuits to get justice. The TWC producer allegedly told Noble she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever [Weinstein] wished", and if she did so, "they would work" with her.

British actor Kadian Noble, 31, has launched a suit in the U.S. alleging that the producer assaulted her at the Cannes film festival in 2004, after grooming her in London, under claims he was looking to cast her in a film.

Weinstein spokesperson is still keen on claiming that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". She cried out for him to stop, but Weinstein undressed her and forced her to perform sexual acts on him. "Once a lawyer files a creative lawsuit, you'll frequently see copycats".

Bob Weinstein is yet to respond to the suit, but has denied any knowledge in his brother Harvey's alleged misconduct. She claims he asked her to walk up and down the room "for audition purposes".

That's when Weinstein pulled Kadian closer and "groped her breasts", 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 or position in an upcoming project", the complaint details. The lawsuit claims employees "knew to "take care" of the FOH's". "Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".

The lawsuit was filed this week and because of the additional element of sex trafficking - with Weinstein crossing worldwide borders with Noble - the statute of limitations is increased to 10 years.
