Hollywood liberal and Democratic mega donor Harvey Weinstein has hired a team of high-powered attorneys in preparation for soon-to-be-published stories detailing sexual allegations and complaints of improper work behavior against him.
Weinstein, a Hollywood mogul and founder of the Weinstein Company, will soon be featured in the New York Times and New Yorker for his alleged improper work behavior. In the stories, some of the women making the charges are believed to be on the record, Variety reported.
Weinstein has retained prominent litigator David Boies, known for representing Al Gore in the U.S. Supreme Court case Bush v. Gore, which resolved the 2000 presidential election. Prior to the articles’ publication, he has also retained attorneys Lisa Bloom, who brought down former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly after sexual harassment allegations, and Charles Hardner. At least one of the stories could be published as early as next week, according to Variety:
Jodi Kantor, an investigative reporter who wrote about harsh working conditions at Amazon, is working on the story for the Times, along with Megan Twohey, who wrote a piece about Weinstein’s questionable charitable work for amfAR, a charity involved with AIDS research. Ronan Farrow, the former MSNBC host, is doing the story for the New Yorker, according to multiple individuals with knowledge of the situation. One individual said that at least one of the stories could be published as early as this week.
