Harvey Weinstein has filed a lawsuit against his own company

More than 50 women have come forward in recent weeks to accuse him of sexual harassment or rape.

The sexual harassment scandal surrounding the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein (and other men in show business) continues to deepen.

When his former company fired him, he was cut off from accessing his email account - which he now claims will contains information that will help with his case.

He is arguing that due to a discrimination investigation opened against him by the NY attorney general and because of a suit filed against him from an actress for $5 million that his TWC documents are needed for his defense.

He also wants to pursue legal action against the studio "for mismanagement by leaking confidential company information" - saying that certain news reports about his behaviour "could have only come from his personnel file". Earlier this week, Dominique Huett, who claims that Weinstein forced oral sex on her in 2010, filed a $5 million lawsuit against the Weinstein Co., in which she claimed that board members were aware of the producer's history of alleged sexual misconduct and did nothing about it. The board reportedly denied his request on October 20, 2017, saying he had "failed to establish a need for the documents for a proper objective", according to BuzzFeed News. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances". "And it was just the moment when I could be-when The New York Times was willing to throw their venerable and considerable resources behind the investigative reporting of Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohy-who's here tonight-that everyone could hear the story".
