The Weinstein Co. fires David Glasser as president 'for cause'

  The Weinstein Co. fires David Glasser as president 'for cause' The Weinstein Company’s board of directors has “unanimously voted to terminate” president and chief operating officer David Glasser “for cause,” the studio announced in a brief statement released on Friday night. The move comes after New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against The Weinstein Co. over “egregious violations of New York’s civil rights, human rights, and business laws.” In addition to naming sibling co-founders Bob and Harvey Weinstein — the latter of which was accused by dozens of women of sexual harassment and assault — Schneiderman also singled out Glasser in a news conference after the complaint was filed. “The COO David Glasser, who supervised the human resources department, did not stop this discrimination, harassment and abuse, even though he was in charge of handling dozens of shocking complaints,” Schneiderman had said, according to The Los Angeles Times. The Weinstein Co. did not immediately respond to EW’s request for further comment on the matter. Glasser’s firing is the latest hitch for a studio that’s been trying to stay afloat since the allegations came out against Weinstein. Having sought treatment at an Arizona rehabilitation facility, the former movie mogul has repeatedly denied any accusation of nonconsensual sex. The Weinstein Co. had been in talks to sell itself to a group of investors led by former Obama administration official Maria Contreras-Sweet, but Schneiderman’s lawsuit has reportedly put negotiations on hold.

A judge has dismissed a $60 million lawsuit filed by Steve Harvey‘s ex-wife, who claimed that she contemplated suicide amid their 2005 divorce due to the TV host’s actions.

Mary Harvey sued the 61-year-old for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress and “soul murder,” among other things, according toE! News. According to the outlet, the lawsuit states, “Soul murder is achieved by a combination of torture, deprivation and brainwashing.”

Los Angeles judge Gregory Keosian tossed the case because he said it should be handled by a judge in Texas, where the divorce took place, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. E! News reported that the original suit was not filed by an attorney, but rather, Mary’s civil right’s activist.

Trump faces legal challenge on border wall with Mexico

  Trump faces legal challenge on border wall with Mexico An Indiana-born federal judge, whose Mexican heritage Donald Trump used to paint him as biased against him in a 2016 court case because of his immigration stance, will hear arguments in a lawsuit that could block construction of a border wall with Mexico. Judge Gonzalo Curiel will hear arguments Friday on a lawsuit from the state of California and advocacy groups that a border wall with Mexico must go through normal environmental reviews, which could cause major delays.

Steve Harvey ' s ex - wife says she was "threatened, arrested and placed under gag order" to protect his public image. Alleging child endangerment, torture , kidnapping and other counts, the suit seeks $ 60 million in damages.

Comedian and Family Feud host Steve Harvey was hit with a $ 60 million dollar lawsuit by his ex - wife for damaging her “soul” and subjecting her to torture during and following their nine-year marriage.

At the time the suit was filed, Harvey’s attorney Brandon R. Williams, told Entertainment Tonight in a statement, “Mr. Harvey vehemently denies any allegations set forth in the lawsuit. The complaint is merit-less, frivolous and the allegations are completely false. We will vigorously defend/counterclaim against the complaint.”

The duo were married from 1996 to 2005.

“I got married for the wrong reasons. I was tired of being alone. I have to own that. It was me, not her. But it was bad for a long time,” he told PEOPLE in 2016.

Harvey and his current wife, Marjorie, wed in 2007. The two blended their family, which includes his twin daughters, Brandi and Karli from his marriage to first wife Marcia. He also shares sons Broderick and Wynton from his second marriage to Mary.
