New York’s attorney general filed a suit Sunday against the Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein and his brother Robert Weinstein for “egregious violations” of the state’s civil rights, human rights and business laws.

In a press release, Eric Schneiderman alleges executives from the company and its board consistently failed to protect employees from Harvey Weinstein, who was CEO at the time.

The suit, which is the result of a four-month investigation, includes “new and extensive allegations” about Harvey Weinstein’s “vicious and exploitative mistreatment of company employees.”
