Lawyers for Harvey Weinstein have asked the Delware bankruptcy judge presiding over his case to lift the automatic bankruptcy stay that halts outside legal proceedings outside of the bankruptcy case so that the convicted rapist can bring an arbitration over his alleged wrongful termination. According to his counsel, “newly discovered information and facts, gleaned during the course of investigation and discovery in collateral matters, have yielded evidence that corroborates the wrongful termination claim, and that her client has endured “one of the most publicized criminal proceedings in recent history” while “suffering from increasing ill health and medical issues.”
Weinstein was fired on October 8, 2017, just after a news arcticle was published blowing the whistle on decades of sexual misconduct by Weinstein. Personally, I cannot imagine this scumbag has much of a case. Just my opinion.
