Sitrick And Company Resigns Repping Disgraced Mogul Harvey Weinstein
EXCLUSIVE: The crisis public relations firm Sitrick And Company has resigned its post as spokesman for Harvey Weinstein. The firm was retained by Weinstein’s lawyers to handle PR for the mogul early last October, just as The New York Times and The New Yorker published stories alleging dozens of incidents of sexual misconduct. The board of directors of TWC summarily fired Weinstein when those stories hit. Since then, there have been criminal investigations, civil lawsuits, and more allegations made by former employees and actresses including Annabella Sciorra, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Asia Argento, Rose McGowan and many others.

Harvey Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan Doesn't Believe He'll 'Ever Be Prosecuted for Any Rapes'
Rose McGowan believes that the man she accused of rape, Harvey Weinstein, will never face time behind bars — period. “I don’t think Harvey Weinstein will ever be prosecuted for any rapes,” the actress and activist told GoodMorning Britain onWednesday. “You have to understand the judicial system is completely stacked against victims in any way, shape or form, in that most people cannot, in fact, seek justice that way,” added McGowan, 44, before going onto suggest that police officers, justices and judges should be specifically trained “in sexual assault, sexual harassment and abuse, so they can understand it more.” Weinstein, 66, currently faces over 60 sexual assault and misconduct allegations against him. This includes McGowan, who graphically described her alleged sexual assault by the movie mogul in her book BRAVE. Weinstein is under investigation for rape by the Los Angeles Police Department. Meanwhile, police in the United Kingdom have widened their investigation into Weinstein to include allegations of sexual assault by seven women. The Charmed star said that despite writing a book about her alleged experience, what made her feel “the true weight lift” was when the Weinstein Company declared bankruptcy. “It’s like this multi-headed hyrda, this monster, and it kept trying to come back,” she added. “People kept trying to buy the company back for him, and I was like, ‘no, you must stay down, it must show other people around the world that this can be done.

"The 11th hour move on the unsecured creditors and the victims -- to scare them into withholding support for the only bidder who has pledged to do right by the victims -- should be seen for what it is: one more attempt by the Weinsteins to silence women," Beth Fagan, class action counsel to the plaintiffs in the class action, of Hagens Berman law firm, said in a statement to TheWrap Wednesday night.
"Time's up. Victims will not be silenced -- but they also will not allow the brothers to evade the proper channels of the courts overseeing the class and individual assault claims."
Armenta Law Firm and Hagens Berman are representing many of Harvey Weinstein's accusers.
On Tuesday, it was announced that the majority of the The Weinstein Company's bankrupt assets will go to it's original bidder, the Dallas-based Lantern Capital Partners.
Kagan's initial bid had missed the Monday deadline.
