Harvey Weinstein $44 Million
His counsel is proposing a settlement would range in the amount of $44 million. The numbers are reflecting from a bankruptcy court located in Delaware. Above all, the $30 million of the settlement will go to the plaintiffs, who have accused by Weinstein and his company employees. In addition, it will also cover the legal fees of the plaintiffs.
Furthermore, the outstanding $14 million will be allocated to paying out his employee’s personal legal fees regarding the matter. That of which will also include board members who were deemed defendants in the civil suit. Overall despite the amount awarded, it surely isn’t hurting the movie mogul pockets at all.
