Jay Holland speaks to The Wrap regarding Weinstein sexual assault allegations

The New York Times and The New Yorker first reported the accusations by more than a  dozen women that accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape. More women came forward following the reports, and soon after, the Weinstein Company board of directors fired Weinstein from the company.

Holland told The Wrap, “The fact of the matter is that Harvey Weinstein was the face of the company, and he ran the company. And if he sexually harassed these women, the company might automatically be liable.”

Holland also predicted that the potential liability means that the company will almost certainly cease to exist as an enterprise, as reports have shown that the company is discussing a fire sale of its assets. Click the image below for the full article.
