Knicks owner James Dolan, Bucks owner Marc Lasry named in Harvey Weinstein lawsuit


The Harvey Weinstein scandal has reached the NBA.

Maya Salam of The New York Times:

A class-action lawsuit was filed on Wednesday against Harvey Weinstein, Miramax, The Weinstein Company and members of its board of directors, claiming that these entities worked to “perpetuate and conceal Weinstein’s widespread sexual harassment and assault,” a cover-up that amounts to civil racketeering.

In a joint statement, the six plaintiffs said, “We are but six women representing hundreds” who have been harassed or assaulted by Mr. Weinstein.

Two of the defendants named in the suit are James Dolan, owner of the New York Knicks, and Marc Lasry, a co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks. Both men are former members of the Weinstein Company’s board of directors — Mr. Dolan from mid-2015 to June 2016, and Mr. Lasry from mid-2016 to October 2017, according to the suit.

Sexual assault is bad, and we should all do what we can to stop it. But determining when someone should be legally liable for someone else’s alleged sexual assault is far more complex.

I gave the complaint a quick skim. I won't call it ridiculous, but it comes close.
