Weinstein, the disgraced movie mogul, was ousted from his role at The Weinstein Company a year ago after numerous reports of sexual misconduct.

On another occasion, Weinstein allegedly exposed himself to a female employee and made her take dictation from him while he leered at her, naked on his bed. These female employees were supposed to help his company produce films and television projects.

Among other behavior, assistants were allegedly required to possess copies of a document known as the "Bible", an assistant-created guide to Weinstein's likes and dislikes, and a list of his "friends" with directions for assistants on how to arrange his extensive and frequent "personals", a code for sexual encounters.
