London civil claim lodged against Weinstein

Captive in Cannes She claims that Weinstein lured her to his hotel room at Le Majestic in Cannes with the promise of a film role and then sexually assaulted her

CNBC reports Kadian Noble, a British actress filed the suit claiming that Weinstein "was able to force or coerce Kadian into sexual activity in his hotel room because of his promise to her of a film role and use of his influence on her behalf".

An actress has filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein under a federal sex trafficking statue after she claims the disgraced mogul sexually assaulted her during a meeting in France.

The alleged sexual predator invited her to his room at Le Majestic Hotel during the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, where he reportedly began massaging her shoulders while telling her she needed to relax and that he would "take care of everything" for her.

When she rebuffed him, he "forcibly" pulled her into the bathroom, where he pulled down her shirt, unbuckled his trousers and masturbated as he rubbed against her and then forced her hand on his penis, the lawsuit states.

At that point, Weinstein "pulled Kadian closer and groped her breasts" according to the suit, despite the plaintiff's protests.

More than 80 women have accused Weinstein of unwanted advances and sexual assault, including six charging they were raped by the Hollywood hotshot.

"There's a slang saying that goes, 'convict and collect, ' " Friedman told People magazine.

Dozens of women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o and Ashley Judd, have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, while actresses Asia Argento, Rose McGowan and others have accused the Oscar victor of raping them.

The assistant "kept reassuring me that he is a good man" and said that she should write a letter to Weinstein detailing her allegations, Ms Noble said.

Noble has proceeded to claim that Bob and TWC were equally responsible and had full idea of Harvey's behaviour and intentions with her.

Noble says she met with Weinstein in London three months before the alleged attack in France.

As for Weinstein, he is under investigation by police in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and the United Kingdom for multiple sexual assault charges.

She is also suing the Weinstein Co. and Bob, accusing them of being aware of Weinstein's behavior and of contributing to his foreign travel to recruit women into "forced or coerced sexual encounters". "So, it's a very creative use of the sex trafficking law".

'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 civil lawsuit says the producer - who denies all allegations of non-consensual sex - violated USA federal sex trafficking laws during the incident in Cannes, France, in 2014.
