JUDGE RULES SEX TRAFFICKING LAWSUIT AGAINST HARVEY WEINSTEIN CAN PROCEED

A Manhattan federal judge ruled Tuesday that a sex trafficking lawsuit filed against Harvey Weinstein can move forward after the disgraced movie mogul tried to get it thrown out.

British actress Kadian Noble has alleged that the movie producer assaulted her and, in her lawsuit filed in November, claimed that he violated federal sex trafficking laws when he promised her a film role if she went to his hotel room in Cannes, France, in 2014, according to Page Six.

“Plaintiff has plausibly alleged that Harvey Weinstein, knowingly and in interstate commerce, enticed and or recruited her knowing that means of force, fraud, or a combination of the two, would be employed to cause her to engage in a commercial sex act,” U.S. District Judge Robert W. Sweet said, according to Deadline.
