The New York attorney general, said on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached to settle two sexual misconduct cases on behalf of several women against Harvey Weinstein for approximately$19 million.
But lawyers representing the six women who have made allegations against prison, the former movie producer called the proposed deal a “sellout”, which do not require Weinstein, 68, to accept liability or to pay money.
The agreement, which must still be approved by a federal judge and the bankruptcy court, would resolve a complaint filed against Weinstein, his production company and his brother in 2018 by the New York attorney general’s office.
It would also settle a separate class-action lawsuit brought in the name of the woman who has accused Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault, said the attorney general of New York, Letitia James.
“After all, harassment, threats, and discrimination, these survivors are finally a semblance of justice,” she said on Twitter.
