New York authorities are now expected to set a hearing on whether to move Weinstein to Los Angeles. The D.A.'s office had previously filed a detainer on New York State prison authorities, the first step in a process that has been slowed considerably by the coronavirus pandemic.
He is also accused of sexually assaulting a second woman the following day. Weinstein faces three charges in connection with the alleged rape of an Italian model at a hotel room on Feb. The charges were filed on the opening day of Weinstein's New York trial in January. 18, 2013.
Assuming he is moved to Los Angeles, he would be held in the county jail pending the outcome of the trial, and then transferred back to New York to complete his sentence there.” /> The D.A.'s office filed the extradition request on July 20.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has filed a request to extradite Harvey Weinstein, as it seeks to try him on five counts of sexual assault and rape.
That charge was filed just weeks before the expiration of the 10-year statute of limitations. The prosecutors added a fifth count against Weinstein in April, accusing him of sexual battery of a third woman on May 11, 2010.
If convicted on the charges in Los Angeles, he faces up to an additional 29 years. The producer is serving a 23-year sentence at Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison near Buffalo, N.Y., after being convicted of rape and sexual assault in February.

At Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony, viewers can expect to see supporters of the Time's Up movement wearing black-and-white ribbons and bracelets to show their support for the workplace rights organization that formed in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Participants also wore pins designed by Time's Up. At the 2018 Golden Globes, stars decked themselves out in their best black attire to protest gender inequality in the industry and show support for those who'd spoken out about sexual harassment.

But, Gutierrez ruled that Weinstein's relationship to her as a prospective employer on future projects is not covered by sexual harassment law.
A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that Ashley Judd may pursue her allegations that Harvey Weinstein blackballed her after she declined his sexual advances.
Boutrous said the case will now proceed to discovery, including taking Weinstein's deposition.
"The law should not tolerate this abuse of power to damage another's career." "We are very pleased that today the District Court held that Ashley Judd can proceed with her lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein and continue her effort to vindicate the wrongs he committed against her among so many other women," said Judd's attorney, Theodore Boutrous.

She refused and walked out. Judd filed suit in April, alleging that Weinstein smeared her reputation and dissuaded Peter Jackson from hiring her on "The Lord of the Rings." Judd was one of the first to speak out against Weinstein, telling the New York Times that he invited her to a hotel room in late 1996 or early 1997, tried to massage her, and asked her to watch him take a shower.
"The temporary nature of a prospective employment relationship is qualitatively different than the often-more-permanent relationships common with the categories of individuals explicitly listed in the statute," the judge wrote.
An amended complaint is due on Oct. 19. Gutierrez granted Judd's attorneys the opportunity to amend the harassment claim.
In his ruling, Gutierrez held that Judd's retaliation claims — defamation, interference with economic advantage, and unfair business practices — are sufficient to proceed.
In a motion to dismiss, Weinstein's lawyers argued that his alleged conduct did not rise to the level of sexual harassment, and that the entire suit should be thrown out due to the statute of limitations. They also claim that Weinstein tried to cast Judd in other roles, proving he did not intend to harm her career, and that Weinstein's purported statement that Judd was a "nightmare" was an opinion, and therefore not a provable fact subject to a defamation claim.
However, Judge Philip S. Gutierrez dismissed Judd's sexual harassment claim against the disgraced producer, finding that it would be unprecedented to apply the statute to a prospective employer.
Gutierrez also dismissed the statute of limitations objections, finding it plausible that Judd did not know she had been blacklisted until the Jackson interview was published.
After the Weinstein scandal broke last fall, Jackson said in an interview that Miramax had discouraged him from hiring Judd and actress Mira Sorvino, describing them as a "nightmare to work with." Judd argued that she only had a two-day part in the 1995 Miramax film "Smoke," which was positive, and during which she had no interaction with Weinstein, and that therefore Weinstein's comments were defamatory. Judd says she was up for a part in "The Lord of the Rings" two years later, but did not get it.

Argento, who was dating the show's host Anthony Bourdain at the time of his death, appeared in two episodes of the series and directed a third.
Argento had reportedly paid off actor Jimmy Bennett, who claims Argento assaulted him when he was 17 and she was 37. As a child actor, Bennett played the son of Argento's character in the movie "The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things," which Argento also directed. The New York Times published an expose claiming Argento reached a $380,000 settlement with Bennett last year, months after Argento came forward with rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Following news of the scandal, Argento was also axed as a judge on "X Factor Italy."” />
A CNN spokesperson confirmed to BuzzFeed News that all three episodes were removed from CNN's streaming service, CNN Go, due to the allegations against Argento.
CNN has pulled episodes of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" that feature Asia Argento in wake of sexual harassment allegations against the actress.
"In light of the recent news reports about Asia Argento, CNN will discontinue airing past episodes of Parts Unknown that included her, until further notice," the spokesperson told BuzzFeed.
After allegations surfaced, Argento denied having "any sexual relationship" with Bennett, and said Bourdain urged her to reach a financial settlement to end Bennett's "long-standing persecution" of her.

who has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 80 women, is expected to turn himself into authorities on Friday in New York, just one of the several jurisdictions that are investigating him on allegations of criminal sexual misconduct. Weinstein, the disgraced producer and co-founder of the Weinstein Co.
"I was surprised," she said, adding that she's happy for victims of Weinstein, with whom she said she has been in touch.” />
Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, said Thursday that Harvey Weinstein's intention to turn himself in on charges related to sexual assault represents a shift in the movement to change how sexual violence is handled.
To see him face charges, Burke said, is almost unbelievable. Weinstein, once a towering and feared figure in Hollywood, was seen by many as untouchable for years as he allegedly victimized women in ritzy hotel rooms and at his production companies.
"This moves from the court of public of opinion into an actual courtroom," Burke told Variety by phone. "That is super cathartic for a bunch of the survivors, or even survivors who are not necessarily victimized by him."
"We might be looking at a shift in the way cases of sexual violence are actually dealt with." "For those people for whom criminal justice is the how they want to seek justice, to see it actually happen, I think is a big deal," she elaborated.

Since the Weinstein scandal first broke, numerous other celebrities have been accused of sexual misconduct, including Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Bryan Singer, James Toback, Louis C.K., Dustin Hoffman, Jeffrey Tambor, and TJ Miller. Many actresses reportedly plan to wear black dresses as a sign of protest against sexual harassment and assault.
"We've got a lot to talk about," Meyers says in the video.

Ever since the New York Times released its bombshell expose of Harvey Weinstein in October, the topic of sexual harassment has been at the forefront of almost any conversation about Hollywood. Current events usually spill over into the realms of late night talk shows and entertainment awards ceremonies, and in a promo for the Golden Globes, host Seth Meyers teased a tough conversation on the night of the awards.
Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath," he joked, along with, "Harvey Weinstein wanted to come tonight, but sadly he'll settle for whatever potted plant is closest." Many people felt that his attempts at humor were in bad taste, and the host later apologized. Meyers is not the first host to tackle the Weinstein topic at a large event. "It has been weird this week though, watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water. James Corden received backlash when he hosted the amfAR Gala in October.
Another promo teases the "unpredictable" nature of the awards show.


"YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa." Marchesa is the fashion brand co-founded by Weinstein's estranged wife. "Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest," McGowan wrote. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy.
Tamblyn responded to McGowan's tweet with a thread of her own, stating that while she supports McGowan's movement, "I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other woman who are trying to create change. This is beneath you, Rose. Telling us to wear Marchesa? You don't have to support and stand with us, but we stand and support you. You make take below the belt shots at us, but we will not take them at you in return." She went on to call for women to stand together.

Prior to the wave of accusations that toppled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, Streep worked with Weinstein on multiple films. After People magazine reported last week that several actresses are planning to wear black dresses to the Golden Globes in January as a sign of protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood, McGowan posted a now-deleted tweet berating them for their "hypocrisy," particularly Streep.
On Sunday, actress Amber Tamblyn took to Twitter to call out Rose McGowan's "shaming" remarks against Meryl Streep and other women who plan to wear black dresses to the Golden Globes.
I spoke to her at length today, she knows how I feel. To be critical of an action is not to condemn the person behind it. I love Rose fiercely, that will never change. There's your common message." When actress and producer Holly Marie Combs called out Tamblyn for doing to McGowan "what you claim you don't support her doing to others," Tamblyn retweeted Combs' comment and defended herself, saying that McGowan's "statement was public and hurtful to some women so a public response was earned.

She said she feels it's important to "take your time, be fair, be exact," and then wrote "Stay tuned."
The #MeToo hashtag took off when actress Alyssa Milano asked women who had been sexually harassed to show the scope of the problem in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations. More than 60 women have accused Weinstein of assault, rape and harassment, but he has denied allegations and said all contact was consensual.
Using a still of herself from Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill," she said "I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in which you couldn't tell by the look on my face.

"Happy Thanksgiving Everyone (except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I'm glad it's going slowly – you don't deserve a bullet.)
Uma Thurman posted a Happy Thanksgiving message on Instagram in which she had some strong words for Harvey Weinstein and promised that she would have more to say about sexual harassment.
In an interview from October, she appeared to be holding back barely suppressed rage.

"So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry… and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.” The interview gained increased visibility when Asia Argento tweeted it a few weeks later. "I don't have a tidy sound bite for you," she told the Access Hollywood interviewer.

Netflix spokespersons have declined repeated requests to comment on the Weinstein situation. During an interview pegged to the company's quarterly earnings report this month, chief content officer Ted Sarandos dismissed the idea that Netflix might buy the Weinstein Company, the embattled production company that Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein founded. Netflix executives had until Monday been largely silent about the issue of sexual harassment since a wave of allegations engulfed frequent Netflix collaborator Harvey Weinstein earlier this month.
Netflix drama "House of Cards" will end with its upcoming sixth season, Variety has learned. Production has begun on what will be the final season of the drama series, which is set to premiere in 2018.
“Our business with the Weinstein Company is pretty arm’s distance,” Sarandos said. Netflix and the Weinstein Company also hosted a Golden Globes party together for the last three years.” /> But in reality the relationship between Netflix and Weinstein has been much closer, with multiple creative partnerships and joint appearances.
On Sunday in an interview with Buzzfeed, "Star Trek: Discovery" star Anthony Rapp claimed that Spacey had sexually assaulted him at a party in 1986 when he was 14. Spacey later apologized to Rapp in a statement released hours after the interview was published in which he said he was "beyond horrified" by Rapp's story, saying he did not recall the incident. Spacey was criticized Monday by GLAAD and gay activists for including in his apology a statement saying that he was choosing "to live as a gay man" from now on — a move critics said appeared intended to deflect attention from Rapp's accusation. Word of the series' end comes in the wake of sexual-assault allegations against its star, Kevin Spacey.
Spacey is the star and executive producer of "House of Cards," the drama series that put Netflix on the map as a destination for original programming. Since 2013, the series has been nominated for 53 Primetime Emmy Awards — including five nominations for outstanding drama series.
Starring alongside Robin Wright, Spacey plays Frank Underwood, a devious congressman who ascends to the role of President of the United States through a series of complex machinations.
Filming for season six began in Maryland this month. Season five premiered May 30 on the streaming service. No premiere date has yet been set by Netflix.
As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time.” Netflix and producer Media Rights Capital on Monday released a statement on Spacey, saying, "Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey. In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported.

We don’t want to be looked at as weak for not being able to handle ourselves in a business run by men. We don’t want to be the first or only voice in the room. He didn’t explicitly offer a trade — sex for work — even though I knew that was what he was implying. We don’t want to lose work by being defined as a Difficult Woman. We don’t want to be attacked for reading into something that may or may not have been there. I know this is an inner dialogue many women have — it’s part of what’s holding so many of us back from sharing our stories. The question — and this is not an excuse — is what defines sexual harassment in the workplace? And I hadn’t gone to his hotel.
To the countless other women who have experienced the gray areas: I believe you.” /> While I still do feel guilty for not speaking up all those years ago, I’m glad for this moment of reckoning.
If I had spoken up a decade ago, would I have saved countless women from the same experience I had or worse? That was the end of that encounter — I was never hired for one of his films, and I didn’t speak up about my experience. It wasn’t until Ashley Judd heroically shared her story a few days ago that I felt ashamed.
There was no explicit mention that to star in one of those films I had to sleep with him, but the subtext was there. Later in the conversation, he mentioned that he had an agreement with his wife. “I want to put you in one of my movies,” he said and offered to let me choose which one I liked best. There was a pile of scripts sitting on his desk. He could sleep with whomever he wanted when he was out of town. In the early 2000s Harvey Weinstein called me into his office. I walked out of the meeting feeling uneasy.
En route, she called me to say she couldn’t make it. I called one of my actress friends to explain my discomfort with the situation, and she offered to come with me. I knew he was lying, so I politely and apologetically reiterated that I could no longer come by. A few weeks later, I was asked to do a follow-up meeting at his hotel. Not wanting to be at the hotel alone with him, I made up an excuse — I had an early morning and would have to postpone. Harvey told me that my actress friend was already at his hotel and that both of them would be very disappointed if I didn’t show.
Following the publication on Tuesday morning of two more exposes detailing sexual assault and harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, actress Heather Graham recalls indirectly being propositioned by the studio mogul.
My hope is that this moment starts a dialogue on redefining sexual harassment in the workplace and empowers women to speak out when they feel uncomfortable in a situation. I hope that dialogue covers the gray areas where we ask ourselves, “Did what I think happen just happen?” and that we are no longer shamed into feeling that we should grow a thicker skin, or that our story “isn’t good enough to count.” I’m glad the victims are being heard, that powerful voices in the industry are speaking up to say this kind of behavior isn’t acceptable anymore, and that a predator is finally facing the consequences — it means the world is starting to change for the better.

"I could hear him moving around and suddenly the sound of bath taps running. I could hear the thump of shoes being taken off and felt shocked that the meeting had turned sleazy." 'What do you say we both jump in the bath?' he hollered.
When she explained the situation, he said, "You better come to my hotel and we’ll sort this out.” A few months later, she received another call from Weinstein asking how work was going.
After they spoke for a few minutes, Campbell, who is the daughter of the late 6th Earl of Cawdor, writes that he left the room — she assumed he was going to use the restroom.
Weinstein's reps have not responded to Variety's request for comment.” />
"It sounded like a godsend. I rang the Miramax offices, but nothing happened." Soon I was sent the script of 'Shakespeare in Love' to summarise (sic) and critique, followed by 'The Usual Suspects.' And then the scripts stopped coming. "He offered me freelance script-reading for Miramax, his company," she wrote.
The two met by chance in the 1980s after sharing a cab in London and crossed paths a few more times in the intervening years. Her account, published in The Sunday Times, states that she started working with the Weinstein Company in 1995 as a freelance script writer after receiving a call out of the blue from Weinstein.
Liza Campbell, a British artist and writer, has spoken out about her experience with Harvey Weinstein, stating he asked her to take a bath with him in his hotel room after she met him there to discuss her career.
Campbell writes that she said loudly, "If you come back into this room with no clothes on I’m going to f—— lose my temper.”
She met him in his three-room suite at the Savoy and although there were several assistants present when she entered the suite, "suddenly all the assistants vanished."
She wrote that it took her "days to calm down from the anger [she] felt and the crushing realisation (sic) that there never was a job; only a hidden hook." Campbell tried to exit the room twice but found locked doors, with the third door she tried yielding.
Weinstein has become increasingly embattled since an explosive New York Times report detailed accusations of sexual harassment from multiple women stemming back decades. The producer has since taken an “indefinite” leave of absence from the Weinstein Company and issued a bizarre statement apologizing for his actions while simultaneously preparing to sue the Times for their report. He also lost two members of his legal team on Saturday.
We can drink champagne. You can soap me — whaddaya say?" As she tried to think of how to respond, he continued, "Come on, it’ll be fun.

As is the thought of how many people enabled this behavior," journalist and author Mark Harris wrote. "This Harvey Weinstein story is stomach-turning.


Coming. To Lose. forward." And. By. To. Gain. Nothing. Amber Tamblyn, who recently spoke out about her own experiences with sexual harassment, said, "Heed the mantra and never forget: Women. Everything. Have.
And to the men out there, stand up. She responded on Twitter saying, "Women fight on. The Times article revealed actress Rose McGowan reached $100,000 settlement Weinstein in 1997. We need you as allies."

Women were not alone in speaking out against Weinstein. Film producer Keith Calder wrote, "Just flipped through some contracts to make sure I'm legally allowed to say Harvey Weinstein is the worst person in the film business."

It's brave." "The woman who chose to speak about their experience of harassment by Harvey Weinstein deserve our awe," she wrote on Twitter. "It's not fun or easy. Lena Dunham was among the first to respond, and commended the individuals who came forward.


"Every industry has at least one of these powerful creeps. Look around. A number of journalists put the spotlight on male-dominated cultures in the workplace. Do you know who the Weinstein is?," Ann Friedman asked, while TV writer Anne Donahue shared a story of her own. "I'll go first: I was a 17-yr-old co-op student and he insisted on massaging my shoulders as I typed," she wrote.
