    Weinstein Co Cuts 20 Jobs Ahead of $289 Million Lantern Deal

    The Weinstein Co. on Wednesday let go of the remainder of its employees, as it prepares to close a $289 million sale out of bankruptcy to Lantern Capital. TWC has been in turmoil, and was forced to file for bankruptcy in March after accusations against the former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s amounted to 30 years of alleged sexual harassment and assault, which began to come to light last fall. The layoffs come hours after a Delaware bankruptcy court approved TWC’s decreased sale price and new purchase agreement with Lantern Capital, despite objections from high-profile filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, who are concerned about unpaid film royalties.

    Weinstein pleads not guilty to crimes against third woman

    Harvey Weinstein on Monday pleaded not guilty to sex crimes against a third woman, as prosecutors plough on with a case that the #MeToo movement hopes will end with the disgraced Hollywood mogul sent to prison. Pale and pasty faced, the 66-year-old former Tinseltown titan was escorted by elbow into a New York courtroom in handcuffs, dressed in a dark suit, tie and white shirt. "Not guilty," Weinstein replied when asked how he pleaded to the new charges: a criminal sexual act for allegedly forcing a woman into oral sex on July 10, 2006 and two counts of predatory sexual assault.

Lawyer Ben Brafman said the movie mogul-turned-#MeToo villain is essentially working as his paralegal and that they're stacking up "overwhelming evidence" from email traffic and witness accounts to refute allegations that, so far, have led to criminal charges involving three of the dozens of women who've accused Weinstein of wrongdoing. "I can tell you that we are no longer simply relying on Mr. Weinstein's denials," Brafman said outside a New York City courthouse after Weinstein pleaded not guilty to new charges alleging he performed a forcible sex act on a woman in 2006. "We have corroborative evidence in the form of witnesses, we have corroborative evidence, overwhelming evidence, in the form of email traffic.
