Lindsay Lohan Feels 'Very Bad' for Harvey Weinstein

Viernes, 13 Oct, 2017

The statute of limitations in New York used to be five years but it was extended in many cases because of different circumstances.

"In prosecution for a Class A felony, and rape in the first degree or aggravated sexual abuse, there's no statute of limitations".

Matt Damon has denied that he helped kill a 2004 New York Times expose on Harvey Weinstein's alleged history of sexual abuse. But Hollywood has been run mostly by the same group of middle-aged white men for at least two decades, who have stayed relevant by swapping jobs or forming new companies of their own.

"If we could have prosecuted Harvey Weinstein for the conduct that occurred in 2015, we would have". "Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status". For instance, they might want to discuss why any of their other Hollywood pals didn't warn them about Weinstein when the Obamas allowed Malia to intern with him. Chapman said Tuesday that she plans to divorce Weinstein. It appears that both Obama and Clinton hoped to skate past a moment of outrage without alienating a formerly powerful Hollywood ally, which demonstrates just how beholden the entire party has become to the entertainment industry for their cash and star power. Weinstein's attorney, Charles Harder, says he is preparing to sue The Times. "But from a traditional analysis sense, the only allegations that would be actionable would be from the last year, or a year from the report of the alleged misconduct".

Paltrow alleged that, after Weinstein cast her in the leading role in Emma, he summoned her to his hotel suite and suggested massages in his bedroom. In the wake of the scandal, Weinstein has hired attorney Blair Berk - whose client roster has included Britney Spears, Kiefer Sutherland, Heather Locklear, Mel Gibson and Leonardo DiCaprio - as well as the firm of Patricia Glaser. Since the first New York Times story broke, Weinstein lost lawyers Lisa Bloom and Lanny Davis.

"We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me", she said.

"And I will peel my eyes back now, further than I ever have, to look for this type of behaviour".

"This was never going to be about work", she said.

Slotnick foresees a flood of civil action against Weinstein and his former company in the near future. He quickly became one of the film industry's biggest power players, as co-founder (with his brother, Bob) of Miramax, the indie distributor responsible for films like Pulp Fiction and Good Will Hunting.
