The end of the year isn’t offering former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein a reprieve with a $10 million dollar sexual harassment suit filed yesterday by a former associate producer on Netflix’s “Marco Polo” series reports Deadline.
The jury seeking filing from Alexandra Canosa in New York Supreme Court is against both Harvey and brother Bob, The Weinstein Company and various members of the company. The filing is for “repeated sexual harassment, sexual intimidation, emotional abuse, assault and battery” dying her tenure working with The Weinstein Company which produced the series.
Canosa seeks monetary damages, punitive and exemplary damages and attorneys’ fees. More than eighty women have gone public with accusations of sexual harassment or sexual assault by Weinstein since The New York Times published its detailed expose on October 5th about the decades of alleged vile behavior.
A Page Six report earlier this week revealed Weinstein was reportedly looking to sell part of his extensive movie catalog to Netflix to the tune of $25 million earlier this year. Netflix execs passed on this deal and he allegedly went to other companies for money, though it’s unclear if he had sought approval from The Weinstein Company’s board to do so.
