Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro on Wednesday filed a class action civil racketeering case in New York federal court against Harvey Weinstein, the Weinstein Company and Miramax LLC, among other defendants. The firm filed a related case last month in California federal court.

The complaint alleged law firms, corporate executives and entertainment industry members were among the participants in what the lawsuit called the “Weinstein Sexual Enterprise.”

“Weinstein’s widespread sexual misconduct did not occur without the help of others. Rather, over time, Weinstein enlisted the aid of the complicit producers, along with other firms and individuals, to facilitate and conceal his pattern of unwanted sexual conduct,” according to the complaint. “This coalition of firms and individuals became part of the growing ‘Weinstein Sexual Enterprise,’ a RICO enterprise.”
