Harvey Weinstein accused of alleged sex trafficking in new lawsuit

Kadian Noble attends the opening of the Joshua Kane London flagship store

Sexual assault claims must be filed within five to 10 years from the date of the incident, which is why many of Weinstein's alleged victims have very little legal options; however, the statue of limitations for sex trafficking is 10 years, so it's very possible more women will follow Noble's lead and file similar lawsuits to get justice.

'Upon information and belief, the code word among TWC employees "FOH", meant "Friend of Harvey", and referred to a young woman who had participated in sex in exchange for a role or position in an upcoming project, ' states the court filing.

The lawsuit was filed under a federal sex trafficking law, based on a claim that Weinstein traveled overseas to use fraud and coercion to obtain a commercial sex act, and also named his brother and their company for knowing about his behavior and profiting from it.

Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein has been booted from the Directors Guild of America.

Harvey Weinstein's spokesman Holly Baird said: "Mr Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex".

The actress is seeking unspecified damages, accusing Weinstein of being able "to force or coerce" her into sexual activity by promising to wield influence in the film industry - and that it was a violation of sex trafficking statute. At that point, s he said he called a producer at The Weinstein Company who said she had to be "a good girl and do whatever he wished".

Noble tried to stop Weinstein's advances but to no avail she claims, as the executive 'forced his leg between Kadian's legs, began rubbing her vagina, and then took his penis out and began masturbating'.

British actress Kadian Noble said in a Manhattan federal court suit that Weinstein "groomed" her by discussing a role with her in London, and went from massaging and grabbing her breasts on a Cannes hotel room couch to forcing other sexual contact in the bathroom. "Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce, knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter, the complaint adds".

The downfall of Harvey Weinstein continues.

The complaint also names Weinstein's brother Bob and The Weinstein Company as defendants, saying they were complicit in the scheme and knew, or should've known, what his intentions were.

The civil suit claims the film producer violated US federal trafficking laws during the incident in Cannes back in 2014.

Bob Weinstein and TWC did not respond to request for comment on the complaint.
