The lawsuit claims Harvey Weinsteintold Noble that for "audition purposes" she needed to walk up and down the room for him, which she did.
"Harvey Weinstein actively had no intention of following through with his promise of a role in a TWC project", says Noble's lawsuit.
In her lawsuit, she accuses The Weinstein Company of violating federal sex trafficking laws 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".
Buzzfeed had two lawyers weigh in on the lawsuit, which is essentially a legal maneuver around the statute of limitations for a sexual assault lawsuit and not actually accusing Weinstein of trafficking women. He has strongly denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
She alleges Weinstein told her they could work together if she was "a good girl" and did "whatever he wished".
Noble is alleging that Harvey invited her to his hotel room at Le Majestic Hotel in Cannes in February 2014 under the guise of speaking with her about an acting role he promised she would receive.
Last week, actress Uma Thurman suggested she too had been a victim of sexual harassment, writing on her Instagram page that Weinstein didn't "deserve a bullet".
According to the claim form, the client is seeking damages "for personal injury, expenses, consequential loss including aggravated and exemplary damages and interest arising out of a series of sexual assaults". The disgraced mogul, whose sexual misconduct scandal marked a turning point for Hollywood's casting-couch culture, is now facing a civil suit from a woman in the United Kingdom who claims he sexually harassed her in London.
That's when Weinstein pulled Kadian closer and "groped her breasts", the lawsuit said.
He then "forcibly pulled Kadian into the bathroom, told her "to relax while he gripped her firmly" and 'started to rub Kadian's breast and buttocks" states the complaint.
"Harvey Weinstein has resigned his membership", a statement released on the association's behalf read.
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. "TWC employees knew to "take care" of the FOH's", the filing claims.
Bob Weinstein and TWC did not respond to request for comment on the complaint.
Rapoport reported the tight end suffered a torn rotator cuff that caused Green Bay to waive him before New England picked him up. While the Patriots would certainly be better with him, his injury shouldn't have too much of an impact on them this season.
