Knicks Owner James Dolan Named in New Harvey Weinstein Suit

James Dolan, a former director of the Weinstein Company and current owner of the New York Knicks and Rangers, is named as a defendant in a new class-action lawsuit filed Wednesday against Harvey Weinstein and his production company. According to the six plaintiffs, Dolan knew of “Weinstein’s pattern and practice of predatory sexual conduct toward women from his personal relationship with Weinstein and his position as a director” of the company. The federal suit goes after Weinstein and his cohorts on grounds of racketeering, civil battery, assault, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
