McGowan herself reached a $100,000 settlement with the mogul in 1997 following “an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival,” and signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Good luck with making a court case against Weinstein out of that, and all the other settlements. Rinse and repeat for all the molesting moguls. It only came unstuck for Roger Ailes at Fox when one of his victims refused to be bought off.
My prediction is that this will blow over in a couple of weeks and Weinstein will return to the business in a less prominent role.
