Weinstein Company Investigated for Possible Civil Rights Violations

The Weinstein Company is being investigated for possible civil rights violations following the series of sexual assault and harassment allegations against its co-founder and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

“No New Yorker should be forced to walk into a workplace ruled by sexual intimidation, harassment, or fear,” New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said in a statement on Monday. “If sexual harassment or discrimination is pervasive at a company, we want to know.”
