Harvey Weinstein Caught on Camera Groping Shocked Accuser

The complaint also details how she initially approached the law firm of Benjamin Brafman a year ago, and turned over evidence, before realizing that Weinstein was actually a client of Brafman's. He has consistently denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. "Weinstein held Thompson down and raped her. Thompson closed her eyes, traumatized, praying for the assault to end".

"As if it wasn't enough that I was assaulted by Harvey Weinstein, Brafman & Associates led me to believe that they were going to help the group of women assaulted by him - when, in fact, they were Weinstein's lead criminal defense attorneys", Thompson said in a statement.

Thompson claims Weinstein, who was indicted this week in New York City, raped her in 2011 after luring her to his hotel room for a meeting about her internet startup.

The 66-year-old Weinstein was charged with rape and a sex crime in NY last week, almost eight months after his career imploded in a blaze of accusations of misconduct. She used the bathroom before they left, and emerged to find Weinstein unclothed in her bed.

The lawsuit alleges that Weinstein was supported in his sexual pursuits by film companies and dozens of workers for those companies who knew he was abusing women.

The attorney of the women is hoping to make the lawsuit a class-action suit to represent the other women who have accused Harvey of similar crimes.
