New York’s civil rights case hinges on unique legal strategy and could have big financial consequences for movie mogul

The criminal justice system and his human resources department allowed Weinstein to maintain his powerful Hollywood career for years, and despite dozens of allegations of s***** harassment and assault, he has continued to avoid serious legal repercussions. Until now.
