  • Harvey Weinstein sues Weinstein Co

In Thursday's lawsuit, Weinstein said he also wants to investigate whether confidential information was leaked to the press, if the Weinstein Company's board and executives wrongly terminated him as chief executive, and if the board is pursuing a "fire sale" of the company, according to the complaint and attached exhibits.

The disgraced producer was sacked on October 8, after more than 40 women came forward and accused him of sexual assault.

Ronan Farrow is reportedly working on a second exposé on Harvey Weinstein after his New Yorker piece about sexual harassment claims against the movie mogul rocked Hollywood.

"Mr Weinstein believes that his e-mail account - which is the primary, if not only, account he used during the term of his employment by the company - will contain information exonerating him", the complaint said.

Lawyers for the co-founder of The Weinstein Co., filed the action late this week in Delaware.

Again, we find it almost impossible to believe that there can be any reasonable explanation to "contextualize" what took place between Weinstein and the women who have come forward with their stories. Now the producer has filed a lawsuit against the company in the calculation to obtain the necessary personal data.

Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister on Wednesday reiterated the producer's denial of all allegations of non-consensual sex.

The New York Times also reported that Weinstein paid a financial settlement of $100,000 to McGowan in 1997 over an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

Weinstein also believes that by reviewing his files, he could help the Weinstein Co. defend itself against claims made against board members, the documents state.
