Attorney Lisa Bloom Drops Harvey Weinstein As Sexual Harassment Allegations Escalate

The high-profile attorney Lisa Bloom is stepping down from her role as an adviser to Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused by numerous women of sexual harassment, Bloom told HuffPost on Saturday.

On Friday, television journalist Lauren Sivan told HuffPost that Weinstein trapped her in a restaurant hallway and masturbated in front of her in 2007. That followed a Thursday story from The New York Times detailing several sexual harassment allegations spanning decades. The Times said Weinstein had made legal settlements with at least eight women.
