The three ladies who accused the movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, have voluntarily dismissed their claims against Weinstein.
According to a report, the move by Louisette Geiss, Sarah Ann Thomas and Melissa Thompson comes in the wake of a settlement plan that was affirmed in January by a Delaware judge managing the bankruptcy of The Weinstein Company.
Geiss, Thomas and Thompson were the lead offended parties in an attempted class action against numerous people reportedly associated with the Weinstein scandal. A racketeering (dishonest and fraudulent business dealings) complaint focused on Weinstein as well as board individuals from his previous organisation as well as Miramax.
At that point, on April 18, 2019, U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein gutted the putative class activity by dismissing 17 of 18 cases — everything except a sex trafficking count against Weinstein, later indicted for sex violations and
condemned to 23 years in jail.
The report further stated that the Weinstein Co. insurers at that point worked with partners on a settlement — one that set up a USD 17 million sexual offence claims fund for victims.
