a Weinstein UPDATE
Weinstein Painted as Tuxedo-Clad Pimp for Sex-Trafficking Prostitution Case
Last year [the British actress Kadian] Noble sued Weinstein, his brother and their company under the Trafficking Commercial Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
[...]
"Nobody has dealt with a factual situation like this under the statute?" Sweet asked, referring to sex-trafficking law.

Telling the judge he was correct, [Weinstein's attorney Phyllis] Kupferstein denied that there was any commercial sex act because Weinstein never promised to land Noble a film role.

"Her understanding about that is not a thing of value," she said.[1],[2],[3], [4]

If the case is unprecedented, Weinstein's accusers have brought the first cases on both coasts. [Noble's attorney Jeffrey ] Herman told reporters outside of court that he filed similar allegations on behalf of actress Dominique Huett in Los Angeles.
