Attorneys representing claims against Harvey Weinstein, his company and former associates have reached a $44 million settlement to resolve civil lawsuits over his alleged sexual misconduct.
The attorneys told a Delaware bankruptcy judge Thursday they have a deal that will be paid by insurance policies, not the disgraced movie mogul.
Since the sale of the Weinstein Co. to Dallas-based private equity firm Lantern Capital last year, the Weinstein Co. has been engaged in several rounds of mediation in an attempt to resolve lawsuits against the company and its former board members.
The settlement has nothing to do with the criminal case. Weinstein is accused of raping a woman in a New York hotel room in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on another woman at his Manhattan apartment in 2006.
