A woman, who worked in the film industry and wishes to remain anonymous, is alleging a series of sexual assaults by the film producer.
After that, Noble claims she was allowed to leave and told by Weinstein that his people would be in touch with her about the role.
But that was until Kadian Noble, an aspiring British actress, made a decision to sue both Harvey and his brother Bob, and the Weinstein Company under federal sex trafficking laws, in order to bring the movie mogul to the justice that his actions over the years, has deserved. "He was someone that I thought was going to make my dream a reality", Noble said of her former thoughts of the mogul.
'Harvey Weinstein ultimately forced Kadian into sexual acts'.
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 suit also accuses him of groping her, before pulling Noble into his hotel bathroom and forcing her to pleasure him, telling her that "everything will be taken care of for you if you relax". She and her lawyers argue that Weinstein knowingly used the opportunity to coerce her into gratifying him, then pulled the rug out from under her. She resisted, exclaiming, "No, Harvey, no", the suit said. The Weinstein Company is also named as a defendant.
Kadian claims that Weinstein then called an unnamed Weinstein Company producer in the U.S., who told Kadian "that she needed to be "a good girl and do whatever he wished, ' and if she did, then 'they would work" with her further".
Weinstein then began watching Noble's reel according to the court filing while massaging the plaintiff's shoulders.
If she did that, Noble claims she was told "they would work" together in the future. But unlike Weinstein's domestic offenses, this one could potentially violate federal sex trafficking statutes.
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".
