Actress Sues Harvey Weinstein and Lawyers, Alleging Campaign to Discredit Her

Actress Rose McGowan has sued Harvey Weinstein and his former lawyers David Boies and Lisa Bloom, accusing them of orchestrating a series of “diabolical” actions against her in an attempt to silence her and prevent her from accusing Weinstein of rape.

The suit includes claims of racketeering, violations of the Federal Wiretap Act, invasion of privacy, fraud, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. McGowan’s lawyers said in a statement that the defendants used illegal measures in “a sprawling smear campaign to defraud, malign, and marginalize McGowan” as she was preparing to publicly name Weinstein in 2017.

Weinstein’s attorney Phyllis Kupferstein said in a statement that “McGowan will be shown to be what she is, a publicity seeker looking for money.”
