6 Women Filed A Lawsuit Against Harvey Weinstein

Six women filed a lawsuit against embattled film producer Harvey Weinstein.

And the plaintiffs say they are looking to turn their case into a class-action suit that they say would represent "hundreds" of other Weinstein accusers.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in New York on Wednesday. It claims a group of companies and people enabled Weinstein to allegedly commit sexual harassment and sexual assault for years.

The accusers said in a statement obtained by Variety, "Harvey Weinstein is a predator. Bob [Weinstein] knew it. The board knew it. The lawyers knew it. The private investigators knew it. Hollywood knew it. We knew it. Now the world knows it."

Weinstein's lawyers have yet to comment on the suit.
