The Weinstein Company has formally responded to one of the class-action lawsuits facing the company, saying co-founder Harvey Weinstein acted alone and that in some instances the statute of limitations had run out on the claims.

(CNN) A class - action lawsuit filed by three women against Harvey Weinstein and his former employers includes a new allegation of rape against the former movie producer. Melissa Thompson says she was pitching Weinstein a marketing tech idea for The Weinstein Company in 2011 and

The response takes pains to place the substance of the claims squarely in the rear-view mirror and asks for the suit to be dismissed. “Plaintiffs’ allegations make clear that TWC’s alleged conduct has stopped and is not likely to occur in the future,” the company says. “Specifically, plaintiffs allege that, had they known about H. Weinstein’s conduct beforehand, they would not have been injured. Yet now, all plaintiffs acknowledge that they know about H. Weinstein’s alleged conduct, and therefore by their own pleading, they will not be subject to future injury. Furthermore, as plaintiffs admit, TWC no longer employs H. Weinstein, further demonstrating that future alleged injuries to Plaintiffs are not likely to occur in the future.”

The class-action was filed last December, citing the federal RICO Act on behalf of six plaintiffs and following in the wake of a different class-action suit brought in November. “Weinstein’s widespread sexual misconduct did not occur without the help of others,” the original complaint said. “The proverbial ‘casting couch’ was Harvey Weinstein’s office of choice, a choice facilitated and condoned by Miramax, The Weinstein Company and its Board of Directors.”

Initial reporting by the New York Times and New Yorker exposed dozens of allegations against Harvey Weinstein and has prompted months of similar reports across the entertainment business and many other sectors. Through a spokesperson, Weinstein has long insisted that he did not participate in any non-consensual sexual acts.

Kathie Lee Gifford is not defending Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, but she is explaining why she reached out to the pair, who have both been separately accused of sexual misconduct. “I don’t want to throw everybody on the same manure pile. Being a jerk is not the same as being a rapist. It just isn’t,” the Today show star, 64, told Andy Cohen for Sirius XM’s Radio Andy on Wednesday. “Yes, I’ve been friends with Bill for a long, long time,” she said when asked if she reached out to Cosby. “Harvey Weinstein was a friend of mine for 30 years. I called him and left a message,” added Gifford, who stated that she has been “sexually harassed, sexually abused and date raped” since she started in the business as a teenager. “I just want people to know I don’t judge them. I don’t like what they do, but God knows their hearts and there’s hope for them,” she said.
