The suit argues that Harvey Weinstein groomed Noble overseas, and used “force, fraud or coercion” during his sexual encounter with the actress.

“Harvey Weinstein was able to force or coerce Kadian into sexual activity in his hotel room because of his promise to her of a film role and use of his influence on her behalf,” states Noble’s 11-page federal complaint, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

  Uma Thurman slams Harvey Weinstein in #MeToo Thanksgiving message Uma Thurman may be ready to talk. The “Kill Bill” star, who previously said she was “waiting to feel less angry” before she discussed Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault, posted about the disgraced producer Thursday.“I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others.

British actress Kadian Noble has filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein brothers and the company they founded, arguing that Harvey Weinstein ’s alleged assault of her at the Cannes Film Festival and the company’s complicity in it constituted sex trafficking .

In a civil action filed in NY on Monday, she claims a violation of U.S. federal sex trafficking laws by Weinstein , his brother Bob and The Weinstein Company. Kadian Noble has become the 86th woman to publicly accuse the disgraced movie mogul of sexual assault.

The case could have major consequences for Weinstein because several of his alleged assaults on actresses occurred abroad.

The suit argues that The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein’s brother, Bob Weinstein, knew of his sexual encounters and helped accommodate them. Employees even had code words communicating what they expected to occur, the lawsuit states. A woman targeted by Weinstein would be referred to as an “FOH,” or “Friend of Harvey,” according to the suit.

“Upon information and belief, the code word among TWC employees ‘FOH,’ meant ‘Friend of Harvey,’ and referred to a young woman who had participated in sex in exchange for a role ... in an upcoming project,” the complaint states.

“TWC employees knew to ‘take care’ of the FOHs. Multiple TWC employees participated in the recruitment or enticement of Kadian into a victim of a commercial sex act,” the suit states. According to the complaint, one producer told Kadian on the phone while she was in a hotel with Weinstein that she needed to be a “good girl and do whatever” Weinstein wanted for future work.

A new lawsuit accuses embattled movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sex trafficking , which could extend the statute of limitations to 10 years. British actress Kadian Noble claims she was forced into a hotel bathroom and sexually assaulted by Weinstein in May 2014. “I still can hear the rattle from his

The lawsuit accuses Weinstein of “knowingly recruiting or enticing Kadian, offering her something of value, knowing that he would use this offer as a means to defraud, force or coerce her into a sexual encounter. Harvey Weinstein ultimately forced Kadian into sexual acts.”

Kadian says Weinstein pounced on her when she met him at a hotel during the Cannes Film Festival in February 2014. The actress thought they were going to discuss a role for her. Instead, according to Kadian, Weinstein grabbed her breasts. When she rebuffed him, he “forcibly” pulled her into the bathroom, where he pulled down her shirt, unbuckled his pants and masturbated as he rubbed against her and then forced her hand on his penis, the lawsuit states. He then allegedly told her his “people would be in touch.”

The company violated U.S. sex trafficking law by “benefiting from, and knowingly facilitating, the venture in which Harvey Weinstein traveled in foreign commerce to recruit or entice female actors into forced or coerced sexual encounters on the promise of roles,” states the lawsuit.

Amber Tamblyn says she's not ready for the redemption of sexual predators in op-ed

  Amber Tamblyn says she's not ready for the redemption of sexual predators in op-ed Actress Amber Tamblyn says she is not ready for sexual predators to be forgiven in an op-ed published Thursday in The New York Times. The actress, who came forward with her own story of sexual abuse in October 2016, is speaking up about what should happen now after droves of women have come forward in recent months to accuse Hollywood power players like Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and more of sexual misconduct. Her thoughts? It's not quite time yet for these men, many of whom have lost jobs and more, to be redeemed. "Why do we need to talk about the redemption of men when we are right in the middle of the salvation of women? Not even the middle, but the very beginning?," she wrote. "Why are we obligated to care about salvaging male careers when we have just begun to tell the stories that have plagued us for lifetimes? It seems some men like a revolution only when it’s their kind of war."

"I’m not talking about banishment. I’m talking about ceding the floor. The power of celebrity and cultural approval must disappear for the time being so that all women see and believe that consequences do exist," she said, adding that redemption should be "earned, not offered." "If you want amends, you have to make them. You have to acknowledge the line in the sand. Once you do this, the next step is simple: Pick a side. Choose us," she wrote.

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York lawsuit accuses Harvey Weinstein of sex trafficking by luring an aspiring actress into a French hotel room and sexually assaulting her.

The Weinstein Company did not reply to a request for comment from HuffPost. A representative for Harvey Weinstein said that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

Weinstein has been the target of several lawsuits in the U.S., including a class action suit, after scores of women accused him of sexual assault. Another lawsuit was filed Monday by an unnamed female film executive in London alleging sexual assault. It’s the first civil suit against Weinstein in the U.K., Deadline reported.

Weinstein is also being investigated for possible criminal charged by the New York, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and London police departments.
