The actress filed suit against Weinstein, Bloom, lawyer David Boies and B.C. Strategies (Black Cube).
McGowan is accusing the defendants of civil racketeering, federal wiretap act violations, common law fraud, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She says, “This case is about a diabolical and illegal effort by one of America’s most powerful men and his representatives to silence sexual-assault victims. And it is about the courageous women and journalists who persisted to reveal the truth.”
