Harvey Weinstein Victims Get $19M in New York Settlement, Are Released From NDAs

Several women who were sexually harassed and assaulted by Harvey Weinstein have been awarded $19 million as part of a class-action lawsuit aided by the New York Attorney General, officials said Tuesday. 

The payout, which still needs to be approved by the bankruptcy and district courts, are part of an attempt to resolve two lawsuits. The first, a 2018 lawsuit filed by the Office of the Attorney General against the Weinstein Company, was first reported by The Daily Beast. It alleged the 68-year-old movie mogul maintained a hostile work environment. The second was a class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of women sexually assaulted by Weinstein.

“Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company failed their female employees. After all the harassment, threats, and discrimination, their victims are finally receiving some justice,” Attorney General Leticia James said in a Tuesday statement. “For more than two years, my office has fought tirelessly in the pursuit of justice for the women whose lives were upended by Harvey Weinstein.”
