    6 women sue Harvey Weinstein for alleged racketeering



    The alleged activity was carried out by what the lawsuit called the “Weinstein Sexual Enterprise,” a group of people and entities the women say combined “to facilitate and conceal his pattern of unwanted sexual conduct.”

    The possible class-action lawsuit, filed in a U.S. District Court in New York, names law firms the women say Weinstein hired to orchestrate a cover-up of his alleged sexual misconduct. The lawsuit also names Israeli security firm Black Cube, which the women said approached potential complainants under “false pretenses” to “investigate which Class Members were providing information, to gather intelligence to prevent the reporting or publication of the accusations, and to secretly record Class Members’ conversations.”

    “It’s a classic RICO enterprise,” plaintiff’s attorney Steve Berman of Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP said, referring to the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. “It was pretty clear they knew what was going on.”


    The lawsuit accused the “Weinstein Sexual Enterprise” of “isolating and blacklisting Weinstein’s alleged victims and covering up Weinstein’s predatory tactics.”

    The plaintiffs are actresses Louisette Geiss, Katherine Kendall, Zoe Brock, Sarah Ann Thomas, Melissa Sagemiller and Nanette Klatt.

    They join the more than 80 other women who have publicly accused Weinstein, who was fired by the company bearing his name because of the allegations.

    "We are but six women representing hundreds. Dozens have come forward so far, and many more remain in the shadows, still trying to find their courage," the women stated. "They are watching us defend ourselves for not coming forward sooner. They are reading internet comments, assessing the risks of coming forward and hoping that a few of us can obtain justice without them having to add their names to the list and go down in history as having been ‘Weinsteined.’ That is not a label any of us wish to wear. But we will, if we can transform our horror stories into a cultural shift."

    Representatives for Weinstein and the Weinstein Co. did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment, although the former film executive has repeatedly denied all allegations of “nonconsensual sex.”

    “Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances," his spokesman has previously said.

    Like I've known for most of my life:

    Lairs and layers of liars and lawyers.

    And they only work for rich people.

    I noticed it's mostly representatives from a specific religious background who are getting tagged with sexual harassment.
