Weinstein Company Sale Delayed by N.Y. Attorney General Lawsuit

Under the deal, the two people said, Mr. Weinstein’s younger brother, Bob Weinstein, who has run the studio’s commercially oriented Dimension Films label, would leave the studio. Bob Weinstein had frantically tried to keep control of the company following his brother’s firing in October.The brothers, who jointly own about 42 percent of the Weinstein Company, would receive no cash from the proposed sale, according to the two people briefed on the deal. Other equity holders, including the advertising giant WPP Group, may also be wiped out.But the final-stage talks came to a screeching halt on Sunday afternoon, according to the two people briefed on the process, as the investor group received word that Mr. Schneiderman was about to file a lawsuit based on an ongoing four-month investigation into the Weinstein Company’s internal dealings.The lawsuit, which refers to Harvey Weinstein by his initials, says that the company’s management and board of directors “were repeatedly presented with credible evidence of HW’s sexual harassment” of company employees and interns “and his use of corporate employees and resources to facilitate sexual activity with third parties.”In one instance, a woman who complained to human resources later discovered that it was forwarded by email to Mr. Weinstein, the legal papers say […]

The Las Vegas Gunman Was Rich. Will His Wealth Go to the Victims?

So far, several hundred victims have filed more than two dozen lawsuits, and a $45 million creditor’s claim, against Mr. Paddock’s estate; MGM Resorts International, which owns the Mandalay Bay; and Live Nation, the promoter of the festival. Should plaintiffs agree not to pursue their lawsuits against the Paddock estate, a complicated and potentially contentious issue will involve establishing criteria for who is eligible for payouts from the estate and how much.While payouts to victims of mass shootings have become standard practice, turning a dead perpetrator’s estate into a fund for such a large number of victims is new territory.“There is no precedent here,” said Alice Denton, a Nevada lawyer who is leading the effort to have Mr. Paddock’s estate apportioned among victims to help cover expenses like medical bills.Ms. Denton, who represents five victims, added, “Most mass killers have been indigent or had modest assets or none to speak of.”That was the case, for instance, with Omar Mateen, who fatally shot 49 people and wounded dozens of others at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., in June of last year. A victims fund for that shooting handed out $32 million.In 2011, the federal government auctioned off some of the belongings of Theodore J. Kaczynski, known as the Unabomber, to provide some restitution to his victims and their families. He killed three people and wounded 28 others in a mail-bomb campaign that spanned 17 years before he was arrested in 1996.Photo” data-mediaviewer-credit=”Hilary Swift for The New York Times” itemprop=”url” itemid=”https://static01.nyt.com/images/2017/12/13/us/00paddockmoney-02/merlin_128309192_39f80b7e-2147-48a8-949d-bc7938a04dd0-master675.jpg”/>A memorial to victims of the shooting on the Las Vegas strip.
