The bankruptcy judge in the Harvey Weinstein Company bankruptcy case confirmed the decision to settle the amount of compensation that all women who have suffered from the disgraced movie mogul’s sexual misconduct will receive. They will share $17 million.
Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct settlement was approved by a bankruptcy judge in the film producer’s company. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the confirmed settlement seeks compensation for most of the complaints from women who have accused the disgraced former movie mogul of sexual harassment and abuse.
The settlement includes $17 million to be split over misconduct claims through a point system, and an additional $8.4 million will be included in bankruptcy claims unrelated to the misconduct allegations. Earlier this month, about 40 women affected by Weinstein voted to agree to the deal.
The deal includes a mandatory indefinite release of claims against members of The Weinstein Company’s board as well as the company itself.
