As per the lawsuit, once inside the room, Weinstein allegedly "began massaging [Noble] and then gripped her shoulders".

The claim against Weinstein seeks damages for personal injury, expenses and consequential loss, among others, as well as against the American and British subsidiaries of the Weinstein Company as Weinstein's employer.

As with numerous allegations by over 80 women that have been made against Weinstein since the New York Times posted its detailed expose on October 5, this case outlines a M.O. of coercion, grabbing and masturbation by the producer.

Actions that could constitute violations of federal sex trafficking statutes, according to the jury seeking filing. But now, a sex trafficking lawsuit has also been added to the mix.

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".

Bob meanwhile is said to have "been privy to multiple claims in which such acts and conduct were alleged against Harvey Weinstein, prior to February, 2014" in the complaint.

During the act, Weinstein allegedly told her, "everything will be taken care of for you if you relax".

Noble's contact with Weinstein "was of tremendous significance to the future of her acting career", since Weinstein was "a gatekeeper of enormous influence in the entertainment industry, and had the power to advance her career exponentially through auditions, readings, introductions and consideration for roles, in addition to roles in [The Weinstein Company] projects", states the complaint.

The 31-year-old said Weinstein approached her at the Majestic Hotel during the film festival in Cannes, France, inviting her upstairs to his room to watch her audition reel.

A civil claim was made against Harvey Weinstein in the United Kingdom on behalf of a woman alleging she was sexually assaulted by the Hollywood producer. A woman targeted by Weinstein would be referred to as an "FOH", or "Friend of Harvey", according to the suit.

Despite her repeated objections, Weinstein allegedly pulled down his trousers and began masturbating as while "rubbing her vagina", eventually forcing her hand "to masturbate him" until he "ejeaculated onto the bathroom floor".

The incident left Noble depressed and suicidal, she charged in a lawsuit filed against Weinstein. "Harvey Weinstein ultimately forced Kadian into sexual acts", the 11-page complaint states.

As per Friedman's opinion, he told People that Noble's lawyers will "be very aggressive and take discoveries as soon as possible, which would mean taking depositions of the Weinstein brothers and their company".

The company violated US 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.
