Harvey Weinstein Sued for Sex Trafficking by British Actress Kadian Noble

Harvey Weinstein & TWC Hit With Claims Of Sex Trafficking At Cannes 2014
But that hasn't devalued Noble's lawsuit, which states that Weinstein "recruited and enticed" Kadian Noble with the "promise of a film role, knowing that he would use means of force, fraud or coercion to cause her to engage in a sex act".
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.
Noble tried to stop Weinstein's advances but to no avail she claims, as the executive 'forced his leg between Kadian's legs, began rubbing her vagina, and then took his penis out and began masturbating'.
She added that her decision was not motivated by money, but "just the freedom of expressing and saying to him what he's done, it just ruins people's lives".
Dozens of women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o and Ashley Judd, have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, while actresses Asia Argento, Rose McGowan and others have accused the Oscar victor of raping them.
Using language common among cops and anti-trafficking activists, the suit accuses Weinstein of "grooming" Noble before trafficking her.
After that, Noble claims she was allowed to leave and told by Weinstein that his people would be in touch with her about the role.
Noble has proceeded to claim that Bob and TWC were equally responsible and had full idea of Harvey's behaviour and intentions with her. First a civil suit was filed Monday in the United Kingdom alleged sexual assault by the disgraced producer.
Noble says she met with Weinstein in London three months before the alleged attack in France.
The company's board has previously said it was blindsided by the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
"Upon information and belief, the code word among TWC employees "FOH", meant "Friend of Harvey", and referred to a young woman who had participated in sex in exchange for a role or position in an upcoming project", the complaint details. "Mr. Weinstein denies allegations of non-consensual sex", a rep said.
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 FOHs".
A spokesman for the Directors Guild of America confirmed that Weinstein had resigned, several weeks after president Thomas Schlamme announced disciplinary charges against the tycoon, but refused to comment further.
