Women harassed and assaulted by former film producer Harvey Weinstein while working for him may soon be compensated through a $ 19 million fund. That was agreed on Tuesday in two legal claims, reports the attorney of the State of New York.

Attorney Letitia James said the deal was approved by two judges, the judge overseeing the liquidation of the Weinstein Company and a federal judge in New York.

If the deal is ratified, the federal lawsuit against Weinstein and the lawsuit filed in February 2018 by the New York Prosecutor against the former Hollywood producer will come to an end. “After all the intimidation, threats and discrimination, these victims will finally see justice,” said the attorney.

“Very unfair”

The lawyers representing six of the women who have brought charges against Weinstein call the proposed deal a “full sale.” The 68-year-old former film producer has no obligation to take responsibility or pay out of pocket.

Lawyers Douglas Wigdor and Kevin Mintzer said the settlement was “very unfair” against their clients and other women who would not have the right to bring claims against Weinstein and others in court. “We are completely amazed that the Attorney General is in favor of this unfair and unfair proposal, and on behalf of our clients we will strongly object to the court,” Wigdor and Mintzer said in a written statement.

Weinstein has been serving a 23-year sentence for the sexual assault and rape of two women in New York for a few months. He has yet to appear in a lawsuit surrounding similar allegations in Los Angeles.
