    Reports that there is $44 million dollar settlement reached. He really should be in jail. Serial sexual abusers won’t stop unless they are made to stop.

    The only thing he had going for him was power, and that's gone now. Not saying that will stop him but it will damn sure take away his opportunities.

    Harvey Weinstein reaches $44M deal to settle sex assault civil suits

    Lawyers for Harvey Weinstein and his movie company have reached a tentative deal that would settle a slew of civil suits brought against the accused serial sex assaulter, a report said Thursday.

    The deal, which hasn’t been finalized, was struck by lawyers for the disgraced movie mogul, women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, board members from his former film studio and the New York attorney general’s office, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    The proposed $44 million settlement, which was announced in bankruptcy court in Delaware, earmarks $30 million for the plaintiffs, including women who have accused him and Weinstein Co. employees.

    Legal fees for the defendants would also be covered by the $30 million, according to the report.

    The remaining $14 million would be divided up to pay for legal fees for people who worked at the Weinstein Co., including board members who were named as defendants in the civil suits, the Journal reported.

    A source familiar with the plaintiffs’ legal team confirmed the numbers to The Post and complained that some funds were going to pay for the defendants’ legal fees.

    “Harvey Weinstein hasn’t paid a dime towards damages incurred by victims,” the source said. “A significant amount of this proposed settlement would be going right back into Harvey and Bob’s pockets, instead of remunerating victims.”

    How generous of him, how many plaintiffs are there to share and divide all that generous and giving 'generosity'?

    .......all Harvey has managed to prove here is that sadly he can STILL keep buying folks off.

    Harvey Weinstein faces arraignment on new indictment in sex assault case

    Harvey Weinstein will be arraigned Monday on a new indictment in his sex assault case — just three weeks before his trial is set to begin.

    The disgraced movie mogul was indicted Thursday on revised charges meant to fix a technical problem with the existing indictment, prosecutors said.

    It does not add additional charges, nor will it delay the Sept. 9 trial, they added.

    The case was re-presented to a grand jury to allow “Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra to testify against the 67-year-old producer.

    Sciorra’s testimony could bolster two counts of predatory sexual assault Weinstein faces — serious charges that carry a maximum life sentence.

    She claims Weinstein raped her inside her Manhattan apartment after she starred in a movie he produced in 1993.

    Prosecutors were barred from bringing charges in Sciorra’s case because her allegation dates back several years before a change in law that removed the statute of limitations in rape cases.

    The predatory sexual assault charge requires prosecutors to prove that Weinstein committed a serious sex crime against at least two women.

    Weinstein is accused of raping a woman in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on another woman in 2006. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Lawyers for the fallen filmmaker slammed new indictment, saying it shows that prosecutors’ case is weak.

    “There has been no case in recent memory where a district attorney has gone back to the grand jury on two separate occasions to re-present a case before that body in the hopes of obtaining an indictment that can withstand the scrutiny of a trial jury,” the lawyers, Arthur Aidala and Donna Rotunno, said in a statement.

    “This action by the prosecutor bespeaks the desperation that has engulfed their case. We have reached the point where one must be concerned that these desperate measures indicate more of a focus on obtaining a conviction at all costs than on seeking justice.”

    Wow, what an incredibly, transparently disingenuous statement from the lawyer. The law was JUST CHANGED - opening the door for the prosecutors to do this. It's not a desperation move if someone installs a new doorway and you walk through it. F*cker.
