Actress Sues Harvey and Bob Weinstein Under Sex-Trafficking Law

An actress is suing Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob under sex-trafficking laws, TMZ reported Monday. The actress, Kadian Noble, claimed Weinstein sexually assaulted her in a Cannes, France hotel room in 2014, after he allegedly promised her a film role if she agreed to have sex with him. Noble’s lawyer said Weinstein’s alleged actions violated sex-trafficking laws, which prohibit people from soliciting sex through force or coercion in foreign business transactions. The law’s statute of limitations is ten years. If Noble’s suit is successful, it could pave the way for other alleged victims to pursue such charges against Weinstein.
